Services at the new location will include medical, dental, behavioral health, optometry, chiropractic, podiatry, obstetrics and a full-service pharmacy. Also included will be addiction services, a medical-legal partnership, health insurance enrollment assistance and a community outreach team.
“We take pride in delivering health care the way it should be delivered, centered around the patient and in a way that supports health equity,” states Beth Wrobel, HealthLinc CEO. “Access to affordable, high-quality health care is a basic right everyone should have and is at the heart of our mission.”
The new HealthLinc clinic will continue to emphasize preventative services and patient education. Using a prevent-versus-treat approach has put HealthLinc in the top 10% of health outcomes among the 1,400 community health centers across the country.
Congressman Mrvan stated, “Thank you to Beth Wrobel and everyone with HealthLinc for your dedicated initiative to make this investment in the people of Michigan City. I appreciate your consistent efforts to positively collaborate and improve the ability of all people to access healthcare services.”
In addition, HealthLinc will partner with Ivy Tech to create a “learning lab” for students to address the need for a well-educated and prepared healthcare workforce.
“Our Michigan City leaders continue to work toward economic inclusion throughout all facets of our quality-of-life offerings, from healthcare and workforce development to education opportunities and beyond,” said Economic Development Corporation Michigan City Executive Director Clarence L. Hulse. “HealthLinc’s new space and continued commitment to providing care to all of our community members are vital to how we can create the economic inclusion that we are working toward every day.”
