Squirrel Hill Health Center (SHHC), a federally qualified health center designed to bring the highest-quality health care to the Pittsburgh region regardless of income level or insurance status, is dramatically increasing its capacity to care with the grand opening of its new and expanded offices (4516 Browns Hill Road Pittsburgh, PA 15217).
The new offices include almost double the number of examination rooms from the previous location, and the expanded space enables the center to provide its full spectrum of services (medical, dental, behavioral health, and case management) to even more patients. SHHC held the grand opening event for its new location on May 22, 2012 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Congressman Mike Doyle attended along with members of the community and SHHC staff.
“Our doctors, nurses and staff see it every day. Across many Pittsburgh neighborhoods, people have a critical need for high-quality, affordable health care,” said Susan Friedberg Kalson, chief executive officer at SHHC. “At SHCC, it has always been our mission to provide comprehensive and compassionate health services to everyone seeking quality medical care regardless of insurance status. That’s why we are so excited to open the doors of our new expanded space, which allows us to increase our capacity to help more patients.”
In 2011, Squirrel Hill Health Center received a $525,000 grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation to renovate the vacant space adjacent to the center’s dental office into a new, expanded medical office space. With this move, the center has been able to consolidate its services into a single location.
