LA HEALTH NON-PROFIT OPENS NEW HEALTH CENTER IN WESTLAKE AREA OF LOS ANGELES
QueensCare Health Centers Opens New Health Center Offering Greater Access to Care for Angelinos in Need
LOS ANGELES, May 5, 2020 – As Los Angeles reels from the COVID-19 pandemic, QueensCare Health Centers (QHC) an LA area nonprofit community healthcare provider opens the doors to their newest health center in the Westlake North area of Los Angeles. This new health center will provide urgently needed primary care services to the low-income, immigrant, and uninsured populations of the Westlake North community.
“We’re excited to be opening our newest health center here in Westlake. As we move past the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re seeing how it’s even more important than ever before that we serve our communities with ample access to primary care services like what we’ll be offering here at Westlake North,” said Eloisa Perard, President and Chief Administrative Officer of QueensCare Health Centers. The Westlake North location will be replacing a smaller 2,500 sq. ft facility that only saw pediatric patients and was located at the nearby Breese Foundation Youth Center. Westlake North will provide much greater access to care for both children and adults as it is a larger 7,000 sq. ft facility, has 11 exam rooms and will be offering pediatric care, adult primary care, asthma management, a clinical pharmacist and telehealth services (online doctor visits) as well as an on-site laboratory, health care enrollment assistance, and health education programs. “The Westlake North Health Center is a major boost to the local community’s access to healthcare, we’re proud to be able to help the community with these vital services,” said Perard.
The Westlake North Health Center is located at 303 South Loma Drive, Suite 202, Los Angeles, CA 90017 and will be the fifth facility that QueensCare Health Centers operates. Other health centers are located in Eagle Rock, Echo Park, East Los Angeles and Hollywood. Offering primary, dental, vision care, and pharmacy services, these health centers help to maintain the health of some of LA’s most at risk populations.
