As the number of patients at Plains Medical Center grows, Dr.
Uri Goldberg hopes the medical center will too.
Currently Dr. Goldberg sees patients at the Plains Medical
Center location in Public Health Building in Kiowa two days a week
Mondays and Fridays. She sees an average of 10 -20 patient each
day, but is hoping a donation will come into the picture in the
“If we get enough support we are hoping to build our own
building,” she said. “But we would need a gift from someone who is
willing to donate some land.”
The medical center has been serving Elbert County residents and
people from other counties since the beginning of July. Over the
past months, Dr. Goldberg said many of the patients she sees have
not had medical care in the past year. She said some people do not
want to make the drive into Parker or Castle Rock to see a
“Since we have been here we have seen a lot of thankful
families,” she said.
Another reason patients are happy with the presence of Plains
Medical Center is the financial programs available. Dr. Goldberg
said many people have benefited from the programs especially the
Colorado Indigent Care Program and the Women’s Wellness Connection.
CICP is a program that gives patients who financially qualify for
the program who do not have insurance discounts on office visits
and medical bills. Women’s Wellness Connection provides free pap
smears, pelvic and breast exams and free mammograms for women ages
40-65 who financially qualify for the program.
“We have had a really positive response to the programs,” she
said. “Many people are now able to get medical services.”
Plains Medical Center also provides a Family Assistant Program,
which helps with dental services and behavioral health services for
families. For more information on available programs and
qualifications needed for the programs visit www.plainsmedicalcenter.org.
Plains Medical Center will also take any type of insurance
coverage excluding Kaiser and will also take patients with no
insurance who do not qualify for any financial programs.
People can pay out pocket if they need to and the center can
also work with them to set up a payment plan.
Dr. Goldberg said she is happy to work in a rural community. She
likes the “old time family doctor idea” because she is able to do a
variety of things.
“I see so many different things working in a rural community,”
she said. “I get to see my patients on a routine basis and really
get to know them.”
