Pensacola, Fla. (April 1, 2023) – A team of about 100 newly hired Global Connections to Employment (GCE) employees are now supporting the Colorado Military Health System in Colorado Springs. Our colleagues are responsible for providing health-related appointment services at Fort Carson U.S. Army Post to care for the soldiers, airmen, civilians, and their families, who work every day to keep our country safe.
The new contract site hinges on our longstanding relationship with the United States Air Force, a tenant unit at the installation. Fort Carson U.S. Army Post is the third largest employer in the entire state of Colorado. The installation’s assigned service member population exceeds 25,000, with more than 38,000 family members. The local military community depends on the Colorado Military Health System for essential health services including dental, medical, mental health, pharmacy, vision, and special needs. Specific tasks are supported through Tricare, including appointment management and scheduling; registration verification, health information validation, and assisting Tricare beneficiaries with a multitude of services.
We couldn’t provide these important services without our amazing team members, including veterans. We take great pride in hiring, training, and mentoring our Colorado Springs team, to support them on a path to independence and competitive employment. Through the decades, our organization has played a part in countless stories of joy and overcoming adversity, while providing many award-winning services to the government. By removing employment barriers, we’ve empowered a team that reflects our corporate values through high degrees of skill and integrity. “We want Colorado Springs and other communities to learn about our services and how we may be able to help them through our services or employment,” said Chris Seventko, Site Leader, Colorado Military Health System.
