A simple thing like taking a blood pressure in time can save a life.
This is exactly what happened last Tuesday evening at the CareVan downtown at 16th and Marion St.
A gentleman, we will call him Bill, stopped by just for some lotion for his dry skin. Living on the street in Colorado in the winter can play havoc on the skin. He didn't want to see the doctor or have any other medical procedures done for him, just some lotion.
In the past, we would have given him lotion and sent him on his way. However, we are now insisting that anyone who needs medical services of any kind must have their blood pressure, temperature, etc. taken if they want to be served.
So, after grumbling for several minutes, he finally resigned himself to the fact that if he wanted lotion, he had to go through the process. Lo and behold his blood pressure was off the charts. He was a heart attack waiting to happen. The doctor on duty took him to the exam room and did a thorough exam. Put him on blood pressure meds and told him to come back regularly to have his BP monitored.
So simple, yet so vitally important.. We care about lives, all lives, no matter what life has dealt them and we strive to do our very best to restore health and dignity to all individuals.
ACS Medical Services is temporarily not taking any new patients at this time. Thanks for your understanding.

Street Care with the Carevan
Corner of 16th & Marion Streets in the Open Door Ministries parking lot
On Tuesday's, the CareVan provides food, clothing, hygiene items and medical care for the disenfranchized of Denver. This is an excellent opportunity for medical students as well as nursing students to apprentice under a licenced physician as a healthcare volunteer.
Thank you note from a Tuesday patient.
In November 2009, I finally left him for good. The domestic violence situation I had been in for years. And now I am able to take the next steps needed to continue to heal & grow in this life I now have. For 17 months every Tuesday you (the van) showed up to give to me, without question of who or why I was here. You fed me, you clothed me, you treated my mental health, you gave me a flu shot, you treated infected teeth and an infected ear, you gave me dreams for nightmares, you gave me hope.
Thank you all who volunteer week after week, putting up with so much and receiving little in return. You all helped me to be able to step out and step above domestic violence and despair.
