Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) July 18, 2014
Inner City Health Center is Denver’s premier organization providing critical medical, dental, and counseling care to the underserved of the Denver community and currently serves over 20,000 patients. Seventy nine percent of their patients are uninsured, 53% are below the federal poverty line, 26% are children, and 64 % of individuals are women.
Speaking of his appointment, Mr. Whalen expressed both enthusiasm and gratitude, “I’m humbled by their interest in having me serve. This organization provides care to those most in need; the ones who can’t get help anywhere else. When asked to get involved, I couldn’t say no – it’s the right thing to do.”
Reeves D. Whalen is a community leader and education activist in the Denver metro community. He has served in numerous leadership positions, by appointment, through Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Superintendent of Schools Tom Boasberg.
Inner City Health Center opened on December 3, 1983 in the historic Five Points community in Denver, which has the highest infant mortality rate, lowest income level, and least access to affordable health care in Denver. Today, Inner City Health is a healthcare home for underserved individuals where consistent, high quality treatment is provided in an atmosphere of genuine respect and dignity while delivering care using a unique and integrated health care model.
