New Clinic Opens at St. Ann Place
Homeless adults can receive primary care on weekdays at the Health Care District of Palm Beach County’s new clinic at St. Ann Place, a daytime outreach center at 2107 N. Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach that offers social services to our neighbors without homes. The clinic is staffed by a registered nurse with the District‘s C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics and is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., when clients visit St. Ann Place for meals, showers and employment assistance.
In addition to the medical care provided in the clinic, telemedicine services are offered to patients who need to see a primary care physician or a psychiatrist.
The clinic expands much-needed access to health care for the chronically homeless and other underserved adults by meeting them where they are. The ultimate goal is to establish the C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics as the medical home for these patients on their road to recovery and a sustained healthy lifestyle.
