Chapa-De Indian Health Auburn Grass Valley | Medical Clinic

Many of our patients have access to a variety of resources to help them in times of need. However, it can be overwhelming to search through the various programs and services out there. Chapa-De’s Patient Care Coordinators help patients find the programs and services that will work best for them. Patient Care Coordinators are vital members of our team!

Who are Care Coordinators?

Care Coordinators are staff members at Chapa-De who help patients with obstacles that affect their care and wellbeing. They work directly with patients to connect them to a wide range of programs and services. This can include:

  • Temporary Housing
  • Food
  • Transportation
  • And more!

Our providers give patients the healthcare they need at our health centers. Our Care Coordinators help make sure that patients are getting the help they need in their daily lives.

Chapa-De Patient Care Coordination Team

The Patient Care Coordinators at Chapa-De are Melissa and Donna. We also have a Community Health Representative, Sami. Sami focuses on working with our American Indian/Alaskan Native (AIAN) population. There are many programs and services available for AIAN patients. It is very beneficial to have someone on our team who focuses on these resources. All members of the Patient Care Coordination Team work to connect our patients with the resources they qualify for.

  • Donna, serving patients in Nevada County: (530) 477-9576
