Meeting Program: Sarah Kinzer, CEO MRC
Stride HealthCenter partnership with MRC
Sarah engaged our conversation regarding in person Rotary meetings at MRC, welcoming us to start meeting there in person when we are ready.  She added that they recently upgraded their internet to a fiber-optic connection – enabling excellent internet connectivity for conducting in person-online hybrid meetings.
MRC has an exciting new partnership with Stride Community Health Center.  This will enable community members to come to MRC for medical services provided by Stride.  Stride has a medical exam room in MRC and starting July 6th they will be available Tuesdays and Fridays 8:30AM – 4:00PM with three staff members.  This includes a general practice MD.  Stride accepts all insurances except Kaiser because Kaiser has their own in-house network.  This includes Medicare and Medicaid, and they recently received a special permit to provide Veterans’ Medical Benefits.
Stride wants to establish themselves as a medical home for local people, to include well child exams, immunizations and chronic disease treatment.  For dental care, patients will be referred to the Stride Health Center in Englewood.  MRC can provide gas cards for people who need them.  Their services will include Behavioral Health, this will help the Jefferson County Mental Health professional who comes to MRC once per week.  They will hold their first vaccination clinic the first week of August during back-to-school days at MRC.
