  • MCHC patient educators offer specific education for hypertensive patients, including diet and lifestyle changes as well as medication management under the direction of their provider.


  • MCHC offers a 3-month blood pressure management program in which hypertensive patients can borrow a blood pressure machine from the clinic, free of charge, for a period of 90 days. Patients receive a small incentive prize for completing the program.

    •  This program is recommended for any Mountainlands patients who have been diagnosed with hypertension.
