Clear Creek County Health and Wellness Center
Residents in Clear Creek County have a brand-new facility where they can access multiple different branches of health care under one roof. Located at 1969 Miner Street in Idaho Springs, the Clear Creek County Health and Wellness Center is an all-in approach to collaborative care and could become the new model for rural health care delivery.
Clear Creek EMS is committed to protecting your personal health information. We are required by law to maintain the privacy of health information that could reasonably be used to identify you, known as “protected health information” or “PHI.” We are also required by law to provide you with the attached detailed Notice of Privacy Practices (“Notice”) explaining our legal duties and privacy practices with respect to your PHI. We respect your privacy, and treat all healthcare information about our patients with care under strict policies of confidentiality that our staff is committed to following at all times.
File of Life Program
The File of Life Program is a free service provided to make life-saving information accessible to ambulance and rescue personnel responding to medical emergencies. Your information is recorded before a medical emergency occurs; it is intended to make your information available in case you cannot communicate (for example if you are unconscious).
We provide a special folder called a File of Life. This small folder is magnetic and to be kept on your refrigerator. EMS personnel responding to an emergency will always know to check if your medical information is there.
The File of Life contains your current list of medications, allergy information, medical conditions, hospital preference, doctor's information, and emergency contact information. Your File of Life should also include your Do Not Resuscitate orders, Living Will and any other decisions you wish to make about your medical care. All information is confidential.
All county residents are strongly encouraged to participate. The program is open to any individual who wishes to be included. To participate in the program, please call the Clear Creek EMS Administration Office at (303) 434-0389, or email Captains@clearcreekems.com. We can mail the document to your home. Or, if you like, we will send one of our friendly emergency medical staff out to hand-deliver the information and assist you with completing the forms.
