Matt loves helping people. And for the past year, he’s been helping our patients begin their care at Mount Evans. “It’s my job to make sure the patient is seen by one of our clinicians within 48 hours depending on their care needs.

Michelle joined Mount Evans more than a decade ago because she wanted to work in a spiritual environment that would feed her soul.
April is Occupational Therapy month
“Medicine adds days to life, occupational therapy adds life to days.”

These compassionate professionals help people of all ages safely recover from or adapt to changes from injury, illness, disability, or aging through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations).

“Social work is the art of listening and the science of hope.”
March is the month all America recognizes and celebrates social workers. These caring professionals are trained to help people see and surmount the barriers keeping them from living their optimal lives, whether those obstacles are physical, emotional, financial, systemic or all of the above. And, as the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) describes, “They are employed to effect positive change with individuals, families, groups and entire communities.”
