A community-development organization focusing its revitalization efforts in the 24 municipalities that make up Normandy school district, and Affinia Healthcare, one of Missouri’s most significant community health organizations, have formed a partnership to open a new healthcare center aimed at providing convenient primary care to those in need. Currently, residents in the Pagedale area have limited options regarding health care services.
The 2,800-square-foot-facility, located at 6763 Page Avenue, will provide affordable medical care for adults and children, laboratory services, afternoon and evening hours, and convenient walk-in appointments. The location will have two medical providers and support staff who will be available six days a week. The center will accept Medicaid, Medicare, Gateway to Better Health and most commercial insurance plans.
“A partnership with Beyond Housing, an extraordinary organization, supports Affinia Healthcare’s mission of providing high-quality health care and exceptional service, while promoting healthy lifestyles. We look forward to nurturing the partnership and discovering how both organizations can better serve the residents,” said Alan O. Freeman, President and CEO, Affinia Healthcare.
When the center opens in early 2017, Affinia Healthcare expects to serve about 2,600 patients annually.
“As Beyond Housing continues to focus its development efforts in this area, we noticed the biggest need was for health care,” said Chris Krehmeyer, President and CEO, Beyond Housing. “We are honored to team up with Affinia Healthcare – a well established organization with more than 100 years of experience serving the community. We fully support this endeavor. There are many residents who will greatly benefit from having convenient access to high-quality health care.”
Beyond Housing and Affinia Healthcare are non-for-profit organizations partly dependent upon charitable donations to support its missions and service to the community.
