The Westside Medical Center Primary Care clinic will become a new Family Health Centers location, thanks to KentuckyOne Health. The clinic, located at 2500 West Market Street, closed on August 31, 2017, for repairs and renovations and will reopen on November 6 as a new Family Health Centers location.
When KentuckyOne Health announced the sale of a number of Louisville physician offices and the closing of the Westside clinic earlier this year, local community leaders became interested in the West Louisville clinic. Following a collaboration with patients, leaders and local partners, a “Letter of Intent” was presented to Family Health Centers to transfer ownership.
“We welcome the opportunity to grow our services in West Louisville, where there is a significant need for affordable, quality primary care services,” said Bill Wagner, CEO of Family Health Centers.
For the past several years, the Westside Medical Center saw declining patient volumes as low as five patients a day and struggled to grow patient volume. Through the transition, patients continued to have access to providers and services at other locations in the downtown area.
