The Vivent Health HIV Medical Home model of care allows people living with HIV access to a large menu of onsite services that include a full-service specialty pharmacy, dental care, behavioral health, case management, housing assistance and food pantry services.

Gifford, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vivent Health. “Dr. Scott is an outstanding addition to our team. Together we will serve more people and provide even higher quality care. Now, more than ever, is the time for people with HIV and people at risk to enroll in care to get all the support they need through our health care, pharmacy and social services.”

Dr. Scott is a leading provider of HIV care in Denver, having been in practice in the area since 2002. At Vivent Health, Dr. Scott will continue her commitment to a personal, humanitarian approach to health care and her current patients are welcome to join her at Vivent Health’s state of the art, brand new location. Dr. Scott’s extensive knowledge on HIV, hepatitis C and transgender care will serve her well as new Medical Director for Vivent Health.

“I am excited to join Vivent Health and to practice in their HIV Medical Home model of care and help more people thrive,” said Dr. Mia Scott, Medical Director for Vivent Health. “I am a strong believer in the benefits of integrated care and by joining Vivent Health, I can be relentlessly committed to improving the health and well-being of anyone impacted by HIV well into the future. We are better together, and together, we can help beat the HIV epidemic.” In recent years, Denver has seen an increase in the demand for programs and services for people who are living with or at risk for HIV. In the Denver metro area, there are currently 10,154 people living with HIV, but only 74% of people are connected to and getting the care they need to manage HIV, according to AIDSVu.org. With locations in Colorado, Missouri, Wisconsin and Texas, Vivent Health has the scale and resources to enhance care for the Denver community through integrated prevention, care and treatment services. The HIV Medical Home model, for which Vivent Health is nationally renowned, is an integrated, patient-centered model of care that helps people with HIV live long, healthy lives.
