VERO BEACH – Treasure Coast Community Health, Inc. has opened a seventh facility at 787 37th Street, Suite 140 in Vero Beach, conveniently located near Indian River Medical Center. To accommodate the rising need for quality, affordable healthcare in Indian River County, TCCH is opening this new medical facility to better serve patients by reducing waiting periods and increasing access to services.
The new adult-focused facility will provide Women’s Health and Behavioral Health & Family Practice services. Dr. Jennifer Moore, Joyce Wagner (PA-C), Michal Andries (LMHC), Iris Madison (LCSW) and Shela Papillon-Anderson (APRN) will be among the many providers stationed at the new location.
An open house and ribbon cutting ceremony will be held in early 2019.
TCCH’s mission is to eliminate barriers by providing affordable, quality care to ALL people. Healthcare is changing, leaving many on the outskirts of accessible, quality primary care. Personal and financial situations can be unpredictable and leave people without access to the care they need. For many, it’s a daily choice between putting food on the table or seeking medical care. As a primary care facility, however, low-income status is NOT required to receive services. TCCH operates like any other primary care facility and has credible, capable medical providers on staff. Sliding fee scale discounts are available to those who qualify; however, TCCH also accepts most private insurances.
TCCH provides comprehensive, affordable medical, dental and behavioral health services. These primary care services include women’s health, family practice, geriatrics, pediatrics, pediatric and adult psychiatry, on-site pharmacies, pharmaceutical home delivery, on-site labs, x-ray services, and more.
Federally qualified health centers like TCCH are America’s healthcare safety net, serving over 28 million patients nationwide. TCCH has served over 22,000 patients in the past year alone. Of those, 16% of the medical patients were uninsured and 44% of dental patients were uninsured while over 50% of patients were under 100% of the federal poverty level.
“I’m so proud of our team and the tremendous growth we’ve seen over the past 25 years,” stated Vicki Soule, CEO of TCCH. “It is our hope that the new facility will assist us in furthering our mission of providing exceptional and accessible primary care to Indian River County.”
