Independence Blue Cross Gives Grants to Support Health Care for the Uninsured
Date:12/6/2007

adelphia's Latino population has steadily increased over the years, we've outgrown our current facility. We are very grateful to IBC for its much-needed support that will allow us to provide care for even more patients in the new health center we are building."

In 2006, the Maria de los Santos Health Center, located in the heart of Philadelphia's Latino community at Fifth Street and Allegheny Avenue, served nearly 16,000 patients through more than 52,000 visits; 95 percent of those patients were Latino. The new facility will allow for 25 additional staff members and is expected to provide services to an additional 5,000 individuals each year. The $400,000 that the clinic will receive over four years is the largest grant being made by IBC this year and will be used primarily to increase capacity and expand services.

Clinics have used IBC grants to increase office hours and available medications; develop or enhance patient health and educational programs; provide more services, such as dentistry, social work, and mental health; and even ensure general operating funds for heat and water.
