...a picture of health
2005 Annual Report
In the late 1960’s, family income in the barrios of El Rio’s reputation as a community caring center
Tucson hovered around $3,000, and basic health quickly grew. Limited in resources, but not
care was outside the reach of many. In 1969, resourcefulness, El Rio devised bold initiatives to

Health Centers. In 1985, Robert Gomez was hired as the Executive
Director. Under his 19 years of leadership, the Health
Tucson community leaders, county officials, the Center prospered, becoming one of the largest and
University of Arizona and representatives from 16 most respected community health centers in the
west side barrios collaborated to apply for Federal country, with more than 500 skilled professionals

2005 marked the 35th Anniversary of El Rio Community Health Center. It was a year of great accomplishments and
continued financial strength for the Health Center. It is our pleasure to share some of the highlights with you.
– El Rio was recognized for its continuing efforts to meet patient needs and provide quality services:
• Our immunization program received a Dr. Daniel T. Cloud Outstanding Practice Award from
The Arizona Partnership for Immunization (TAPI).
• The American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists honored El Rio’s Pharmacy-Based Diabetes Management
program as one of six in the country for a Best Practices Award in Health-System Pharmacy.
• The American Dental Association reported a perfect score and five commendations for El Rio’s
dental residency program during its 2005 accreditation visit.
• Dr. Kevin Carmichael, Chief of Service for El Rio’s Special Immunology Associates (SIA), received an
Outstanding Physicians Award from TheBody.com, the largest Internet-based HIV/AIDS resource,
as well as a State Community Service Award from the League of United Latin American Citizens.
– Our internal focus for 2005 was Service Excellence. El Rio completed staff-wide training in Customer Service.
Cross-departmental teams are currently addressing opportunities to improve service and patient satisfaction.
A special area of focus is appointment availability.
– We selected a new Practice Management platform as a first step toward Electronic Health Records (EHR).
This new system should be fully implemented in early 2007 - setting the stage for EHR.
– Along with other community partners, El Rio focused on the needs of the uninsured. This led to a collaborative
effort to evaluate the feasibility of developing a Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO). Results of
the evaluation are due this summer. Concurrent with this effort, El Rio developed a Continuity of Care Record
(CCR) that can be used by patients and providers. Implementation is planned for the fall of 2006.
The year ahead brings with it new challenges and opportunities as we continue to enhance our customer service skills,
work toward more effective ways to share patient information, and develop plans for a larger, up-to-date clinic to replace
our small, over-utilized site on Congress Street. Thanks to our dedicated staff, generous donors and corporate partners,
we will continue to assure quality care for those most in need in our community.

1969-1970 Tucson community leaders, county officials and representatives from the University of Arizona meet to
convert this Federal mandate into a health care provider for the local barrios. A vacant juvenile detention
center and money to renovate are secured from the county to house the new clinic. The University of
Arizona applies for a federal grant of a half million dollars to cover operational costs.
As our patients’ needs change, so do our services. We take pride
in providing a broad range of primary care services, that include:
• Preventive services including annual screening exams
• Well-check visits including immunizations
• Ongoing care for chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension,
asthma, hepatitis, and HIV/AIDS
• Integrated behavioral health services
• Same-day appointments for urgent care
• Prenatal care
• Evening and Saturday appointments
• Referrals to specialists & other community resources
• Cleaning, fillings and extractions
• Designated daily walk-in times for adults with urgent needs
• Referrals to specialists & other community resources
• Preventive care for a limited number of uninsured adults
• Cleaning, fluoride treatment, sealants
• Fillings and extractions
• Oral health education
• Four full-service on-site pharmacies
October 5, 1970 El Rio Santa Cruz Neighborhood Health Center opens its doors to the community.
There is no typical El Rio patient – and we like it that way. Patients range in
age from newborn to over 100. They represent many cultures and have health
care needs as unique as themselves. One thing they do have in common is
the need for quality health care.

Support from the Pascua Yaqui Tribal Council is funding
the expansion of El Rio’s Pharmacy-Based Diabetes
Management Program to the Yaqui reservation.
1980’s Pascua Yaqui Clinic opens on the reservation
Pharmacy-Based Diabetes Management Program – Diabetes is a major concern for our service population, which is
2-3 times more likely to develop the disease. While diabetes management has traditionally been provided by a patient’s
primary care physician, El Rio has helped pioneer the use of clinical pharmacists to provide intensive hands-on medication
management. Over 1,100 patients have brought their blood pressure, total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL, LDL, glucose
and A1C (a measure of control over diabetes) into the normal or optimal range. Honored most recently by the American
Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists with a Best Practices Award, our program results are being shared at both the state
and national levels.
Inner-City Asthma Intervention Program – 107 new children/teens learned how to implement strategies to control their
asthma in 2005. As a result, hospitalizations, emergency room visits and school days missed were reduced or eliminated.
Supportive equipment, including: HEPA filters, peak flow meters, spacers, mattress and pillow covers were provided to
all participating families.
Immunizations – El Rio has one of the most successful childhood immunization programs in the state of Arizona.
Our award winning immunization rate of 90% far exceeds the state’s average of 74%. We are successful because we run
free immunization clinics at three clinical sites regardless of whether or not children have appointments and we use the
power of technology to track patients and recall them at recommended intervals. Immunizations are one of the most
effective ways to protect children against serious infectious diseases and their devastating consequences.
Dental – El Rio operates two of the largest non-profit dental clinics in the State of Arizona, with 34,000 treatment visits
per year. Recent program additions are enabling us to offer dental care for special needs patients. The Dental Partnership
Program provides free preventive services to qualified patients without other resources and educates the community at
large about the importance of good oral health. El Rio’s “Right From the Start” program addresses the problem of
early childhood caries by educating pregnant and postpartum women on the importance of good oral hygiene for
both mother and child.
Women’s Wellness – An array of health education and promotion activities are offered throughout the year, including:
health education classes, health improvement activities, health screenings, the provision of health education materials
in Spanish, assistance in acquiring health care coverage and ongoing support from a neighborhood “promotora” –
community health advisors. We focus on educating minority women about the health risks of chronic disease,
while helping them make informed health choices that will have a lasting positive impact on their entire family.
1991 El Rio’s Special Immunology Associates open on St. Mary’s Road to treat El Rio patients with HIV/AIDS.
