The Parsons Family Health Center, a 9,000-square-foot primary care facility, held its grand opening last month. The center will address the complex medical needs of people experiencing homelessness in Maricopa County.
Funded through a $2 million grant from The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation, the new outpatient clinic at 3522 N. 3rd Ave. will provide comprehensive primary care services, integrated psychiatric care, behavioral health therapy and case management services.
The center is a companion piece to Circle the City, a nonprofit organization that provides integrative health services to people experiencing homelessness in Maricopa County. Incorporated in 2008, the organization embraces its patients with compassionate medical care and meaningful human services as they journey toward healthy, independent living.
Circle the City will operate the outpatient clinic in alignment with a mobile medical unit and its existing 50-bed medical respite center to provide a continuum of health services previously unavailable to the homeless community. The new health center features eight exam rooms and will host a team of clinicians who are experienced in treating the acute and frequently chronic health concerns of the homeless population.
