After 20 years of co-location at the Goodwill Community Campus, Partnership Community Health Center has moved to a new location at 5471 Waterford Drive in Appleton, adjacent to PCHC’s existing dental facility. This location opened on October 30th with a new design that integrates primary medical care and behavioral health care. An official ribbon cutting event is scheduled for Tuesday, November 7 at noon.
“This is a very exciting time for our organization as we continue to expand to meet the needs in our community. We have had a wonderful relationship with Goodwill Industries and the Menasha community over the years, and we thank everyone for their ongoing support of our mission and our move to our new location,” said Kristene Stacker, PCHC Executive Director.
“We wish our friends at Partnership Community Health Center the best of luck,” said Robert A. Pedersen, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin (NCW).
“We were sorry to see the clinic and its providers leave, but we take comfort in knowing that together, over the past two decades, we’ve served the needs of many of the Fox Cities’ most vulnerable people. We know that those patients will continue to get great care in PCHC’s new location.”
Partnership Community Health Center continues to accept new patients of all ages to meet their primary medical care needs.
“Health centers are cornerstones of the communities they serve,” said Jeff Hacker, PCHC Board President. “This funding has allowed us to expand our capacity, improve and provide needed health care to thousands of additional individuals and their families in our area.”
This funding comes from the Affordable Care Act’s Community Health Center (CHC) Fund, which was extended with bipartisan support in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015. This is historic as there has never been funding of this magnitude to support the care of low-income and under-served residents in our community.
PCHC is committed to meeting the needs of our community through our coverage to care model and linkage to primary medical, dental and behavioral health care. PCHC accepts most commercial insurances, Medicaid, Medicare, Marketplace plans and has a sliding fee scale for those without coverage. PCHC — then the Fox Cities Community Health Center — became a part of the Goodwill Community Campus at 1800 Appleton Road, Menasha, in 1997, after a $1.6 million capital campaign expanded the Goodwill facility, which continues to serve more than two dozen human-services agencies and programs.
