A ribbon-cutting was recently held for a new mobile health clinic that will serve Cambria, Somerset, and Bedford Counties. The clinic is a partnership between Hyndman Health, 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health, and Richland Family Health Center. The clinic provides free services to adults and children, including primary care, screenings for conditions like diabetes and hypertension, and a full range of dental services. The clinic will also serve as a vital link between patients and clinical facilities.
The clinic was funded by a $500,000 grant from 1889 Foundation that will also help fund a new walk-in primary care facility to be located in the City of Johnstown.
“These initiatives directly address the social determinants of health by removing the transportation and affordability barriers for underserved populations,” explains William Kurtycz, CEO of Hyndman Health. “1889 Foundation has been a catalyst for all organizations in our community, dramatically improving the healthcare rankings of our counties.”
