Salt Lake City — Community Health Centers, Inc. (CHC), a non-profit community health center organization, has received a New Access Point (NAP) grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HRSA) to start a new CHC site in the Glendale area. This will allow CHC to expand care in an area where nearly 50 percent of residents are below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The new clinic includes dental and behavioral health and is expected to provide medical care to 3,400 uninsured patients.
The new CHC Glendale area medical clinic will be staffed with a family physician, two certified physician assistants, and four clinical support staff. The dental clinic will be staffed by a dentist, dental hygienist and three dental technicians. Behavioral health staff will include a behavioral health provider and a case manager.
The clinic will provide primary care including screenings, family planning, emergency medical services, general labs and diagnostics, family planning, immunizations, well child, gynecological and obstetrical care, prenatal and perinatal services, preventative dental care and patient referrals to specialty services.
