Date:10/9/2007

Clinic is Sixth Location for Miami Beach Community Health Center

MIAMI, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The newly-opened Little Haiti location of the Miami Beach Community Health Center (MBCHC) is hosting an Open House for the community on Thursday, October 11th from noon to 2 p.m. The full-service medical clinic, located at the Center for Haitian Studies, Health and Human Services (CHS), is the sixth location for MBCHC, which runs a comprehensive network of federally qualified health centers in Miami-Dade County. The new health center is located at 8260 NE 2nd Avenue in Miami.

"We are delighted to collaborate with the Center for Haitian Studies to help this under-served population," said Kathryn Abbate, CEO of MBCHC. "Patients will benefit from our comprehensive medical service network in a culturally sensitive environment."

Medical services available to patients at the new clinic include pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, pharmacy, laboratory, internal medicine and immune support programs. Men, women and children will receive quality healthcare regardless of their ability to pay or lack of insurance coverage.

"We're very grateful to the Health Foundation of South Florida for orchestrating this partnership," said Laurinus Pierre, M.D., M.P.H., Executive Director of CHS. "Little Haiti has long needed a health center to serve our community, and we welcome the commitment of the Miami Beach Community Health Center to provide quality care."

MBCHC is celebrating its 30th anniversary this fall. It serves as many as 20,000 patients each year. As a federally qualified health center, the patient's costs are calculated using a sliding scale of fees based on income. High quality medical care is available at the six locations, which are certified by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).

The Center for Haitian Studies, Health and Human Services (CHS) is a community-based, non-profit corporation, which was founded in 1989 for the purposes of improving the lives of the Haitian people and other disenfranchised populations living in underserved areas of Miami-Dade County. CHS is a vital source of education and training for healthcare providers and others who seek to better understand the Haitian culture, in addition to their community outreach via health fairs, broadcast media and one-on-one educational sessions.

Established in 1977, Miami Beach Community Health Center offers quality, comprehensive ambulatory healthcare to meet the physical and psychosocial needs of patients at six locations in Miami Beach, Little Haiti and North Miami, and a school-based care program at Miami Beach Senior High School. It is a member of Health Choice Network, a group of non-profit community health agencies in the State of Florida. MBCHC has emerged into a fully integrated medical network, offering a broad spectrum of services and Board-certified specialties such as family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, geriatrics, dental care, behavioral health and pharmacy.
