Common Searching Problems

Can't find what you're looking for? Here is a list of common problems:

  1. Spelling or typing error in keywords.
  2. Practice or agency not located in the Fort Collins area.
  3. Searching under the wrong type of care. See the care index below to make sure you are searching in the right category.
  4. Search parameters are too narrow. Try using fewer keywords or specifying fewer criteria.
  5. Practice or agency isn't listed on the website. If you have tried everything and still can't find the info you need, please send an email to pklein@healthdistrict.org to suggest a resource.

How to Search

There are two ways to search the database for the healthcare you need. If you know the name of the agency or provider you're seeking, try a keyword search. If you're starting from scratch, try searching by type of care.

How the Database Works
This site stores three levels of healthcare provider information:

  1. Organization
  2. Program
  3. Provider


Healthcare organizations are the top level in the database. All healthcare agencies and organizations in this database will have an organization record, whether a large nonprofit agency or a small one-provider private practice. These records provide all or some of the following information:

  1. Name or organization or agency
  2. Description
  3. Funding (nonprofit or governmental, for-profit)
  4. Email and website
  5. Office address and phone
  6. Disability access
  7. Languages spoken


Each organization can have zero or more programs/services below it. Examples of programs and services include the Family Dental Clinic (a program of Health District of Northern Larimer County) and Family Services (offered by Foothills Gateway). To ensure that smaller private practices come up in searches, most private practices will also have a program record, though some of the information may repeat from the organization record. Program records provide all or some of the following information:

  1. Program name (if a private practice, this will be the same as the organization name)
  2. Description
  3. Year founded
  4. General hours of operation
  5. Type of care
  6. Ages served
  7. Payment/fee structure
  8. Any eligibility requirements
  9. Childcare availability
  10. Population served
  11. Program duration


Programs may have zero or more individual providers. Provider records include all or some of the following information:

  1. First and last name
  2. Gender
  3. First year of practice
  4. Description of provider/services
  5. Type of provider/specialties
  6. Education
  7. Hospital privileges (mainly for physicians)
