Greenville, SC, May 21, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Unity Health on Main, a community led health center that serves the Medically Underserved Area (MUA) of Greenville County (SC), is excited to announce it is open for business and accepting new patients at 505 N Main Street Suite C in Greenville, SC. A grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony will take place May 24, 2018 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. with an address to the crowd happening at 5:45 p.m.
Unity Health on Main is a 501(c)(3) that formed in direct response to a 2016 community needs assessment revealing over 70 thousand Greenville County residents lack access to affordable healthcare.
“Each year thousands of children and their families go without healthcare because it’s too expensive or they don’t have the monthly income available to pay for office visits or services,” says Norma Jean Huerta, Executive Director of Unity Health on Main. “Nobody should ever have to choose between putting food on the table or seeing a doctor. That’s why Unity Health on Main exists, to provide care to everyone regardless of their ability to pay.”
Located next to the former baby Bi-lo, strategically situated at the corner of W. Park Ave and N. Main Street and conveniently located on two major bus routes, Unity Health on Main strives to reduce major barriers to seeking care from a family doctor in Greenville SC.
“We want to make it as simple as possible for the community to access quality healthcare services and that includes not only affordability but accessibility,” says Darion Morgan, Chairman of the Board. “We’re breaking down barriers of cost, transportation and language to help families lead healthy, positive lives.”
Since opening its doors in Summer 2017 with pediatrics in Greenville, the local response has been overwhelming and Unity Health has begun expanding its practice to include complete health care services for the entire family.
Please join Unity Health on Main for its official grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting on May 24, 2018 from 5p.m. to 7p.m. The Unity Health on Main Board of Directors and professional staff will also be on site and available to give tours, provide information about the organization and help community members become involved in the mission to provide comprehensive health care to the entire community. Meet your new family doctor at Unity Health on Main, the home of pediatrics, in Greenville SC.
Community partners will also be on site to share information about living a healthier lifestyle through proper nutrition and physical activity. Partners like The Pearlie Harris Breast Mammography Bus and Mobile Dental Coach will be on site to give tours and teach people how to sign up and take advantage of their exciting programs.
