Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center Celebrates National Health Center Week


 

Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center (MWCHC) is excited to announce details surrounding the celebration of National Health Center Week (NHCW). During Health Center Week, MWCHC will provide free drive-thru COVID tests, host a clinic tour for Mayor Cooper, and provide a Drive-Up Diaper Giveaway. The clinic will also recognize their frontline staff throughout with special activities.

National Health Center Week (August 9 - 15) is an annual celebration with the goal of raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America's health centers over the past five decades. As the country's largest primary care network, Community Health Centers are the health care home for 30 million Americans in over 14,000 communities across the nation. One in every twelve people in the United States gets their care in a Community Health Center.

This year's National Health Center Week theme is "Lighting the Way for Healthier Communities," and MWCHC is taking the opportunity to highlight the frontline workers at their clinics who have provided that light for patients across Middle Tennessee. NHCW staff events will include employee highlights on all clinic television screens, special lunches, and much more.

"We are honored to celebrate National Health Center Week with great community partners," said Katina Beard, MWCHC CEO. "It's also a great opportunity to give back to our incredible staff, who have remained devoted to providing vital health care to the entire region throughout the COVID pandemic."

While MWCHC typically hosts its annual Pancake Breakfast & Block Party during National Health Center Week, this year's unique circumstances have led the organization to provide revised services to meet community needs. MWCHC is happy to offer three days of giveaways to the community. MWCHC will provide diapers while supplies last between 9am-2pm on August 11, and back-to-school supplies for children grades K-6 via drive-thru pickup between 10am-12pm on August 13. They will also offer free drive-thru COVID tests and PPE for up to 100 community members between 9am-12pm on August 14.

MWCHC is now providing immunizations for children ages 4-6 years old. Immunizations will be free for those uninsured, and all insurances are accepted. Patients are encouraged to bring the child's immunization records.
