Primary care services expanded in the High Desert

adelantohealthcenterThe Department of Public Health is holding a grand opening at the Adelanto Health Center to celebrate its relocation to a new building.

The grand opening will be held on Thursday, August 14, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at 11336 Bartlett Avenue, Suite 11 Adelanto CA, 92301. Residents are encouraged to come and learn about services provided at the health center and get a chance to meet First District Board of Supervisor Robert A. Lovingood.

The Adelanto Health Center, recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration as a federally qualified health center, was originally a school-based clinic located at the Westside Park Elementary School in Adelanto. The Health Center was recently relocated to a larger, more accessible building on Bartlett Avenue. Clinical services at the new building began April 1, 2014. Along with the Hesperia Health Center, also operated by the Department of Public Health, it is one of only two federally qualified health centers fully serving the High Desert region.

“This larger, more accessible site will allow the department to expand access to preventive and primary care services for the uninsured and underinsured residents,” stated Dr. Meaghan Ellis, Chief of Community Health Services/Health Center Director.

The Adelanto Health Center provides an array of primary care, mental health, and dental services. Services include health screening, referral services, immunizations, management of acute and chronic diseases, and preventive health education. The Adelanto Health Center also provides other services, including Every Woman Counts and reproductive health services.
