The FCC provides comprehensive, high level in-house and outpatient medical care through a partnership with Denver Health. This program provides comprehensive and coordinated management of the medical care of children in out-of-home placement through DDHS. This program ensures excellent and consistent medical, dental and mental health care for children in placement at the FCC. The clinic has state-of-the-art equipment and facilities for diagnosis and treatment of trauma and abuse, as well as for general medical conditions.
Specialized Interviewing Facilities
DHS and the Denver Police Department use these facilities to interview families when their children are suspected of being abused or neglected. The rooms allow observation and recording of the interview processes.
