Award Description: This award is being used to expand the primary care services provided by Advocates For A Healthy Community, Inc. d/b/a Jordan Valley Community Health Center ('JVCHC'). Prior to this award, JVCHC hours of operation were Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, and our medical schedules were filled to capacity. With this award, we were able to hire an additional nurse practitioner, two in-take workers and one nursing staff. These additonal staff assisted us in the expansion of our clinic hours to Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 10:00 pm and Saturday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The expanded hours are allowing us to see an estimated 720 extra patients a month, providing a safety net of medical service to those who otherwise may not receive it.
Project Description: The overall purpose of the award was to expand our clinic hours to Monday through Friday, 8:00 am - 10:00 pm and Saturday, 8:00 am through 5:00 pm. These hours would provide an additional 28 clinical hours per week into our existing schedule and allow us to see an estimated 720 extra patients a month, providing a safety net of medical service to those who otherwise may not receive it.
