In 1995, the North Colorado Medical Center Foundation responded to the overwhelming need for primary health care among children from Weld County’s low-income families and opened a medical clinic. The clinic was designed to provide complete medical care for children who are Medicaid eligible or uninsured.
Named the Monfort Children’s Clinic in honor of the Monfort Family Foundation’s lead gift, the Clinic occupies a modern, 15,000-square-foot building on north 11th Avenue in Greeley built specifically to house a pediatric clinic. In addition to the Monfort Family Foundation’s generous contribution of $1 million, donors in the community contributed nearly $4.5 million to support this important community program. The clinic is owned and supported by the NCMC Foundation and operated by Sunrise Community Health.
