VA Eastern Colorado Health Care System
Eastern Colorado Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center (EC-GRECC)
Age-Friendly Health Systems is a movement of hundreds of health care facilities committed to ensuring that all older adults receive evidence-based care. This means that EC GRECC is working towards reliable practice of evidence-based interventions for all older adults in their care known as the 4Ms (4Ms: What Matters, Medications, Mentation, Mobility). Specifically, EC GRECC is working in our Tele-Dementia / Geriatric Clinic and our Tele-Palliative Care Clinic to ensure they are Age-Friendly. In the coming months we will demonstrate the steps we have taken to become an Age-Friendly Health System.
The Colorado Veteran Community Partnership was established in July 2017.

The Eastern Colorado GRECC focuses its training efforts on translating existing and new geriatrics knowledge and skills into clinical practice at the local, regional and national levels. These efforts build on the substantial geriatrics educational and training activities at the Rocky Mountain Regional VAMC and leverage important resources from the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
