Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers To Expand Primary Care and Behavioral Health Services Through $1 Million Grant From Aurora's Better Together Fund
Date:5/27/2015

Milwaukee, Wis. (PRWEB) May 27, 2015

“We are honored to receive this gift from Aurora,” said Julie Schuller, MD, executive vice president and vice president of clinical affairs for SSCHC. “The increase in capacity this grant makes possible allows us to provide comprehensive care to more individuals and improve the overall health of our community.”

SSCHC provides clinical care and behavioral health services for Milwaukee’s vulnerable population and served over 35,000 people in 2014, many of whom took advantage of the clinic’s behavioral health services. SSCHC’s primary care and behavioral health departments look forward to using the grant money to expand and further increase the community’s access to quality care.

With the grant, SSCHC is particularly excited to expand its behavioral health care services. The clinic plans to hire new psychologists, therapists, and advanced practice nurse prescribers and is exploring facility sites as well.

In addition to the $1 million grant for SSCHC, Aurora’s Better Together Fund, a $10 million charitable fund created to address the increased need of access to community healthcare, has also gifted funds to five other federally qualified health centers and 15 free clinics across eastern Wisconsin.

“Through our Better Together Fund, we’re proud to support like-minded organizations that are striving to create better access points to health care for all,” said Nick Turkal, MD, president and CEO of Aurora Health Care.
