Ensuring patients have access to the health care they need is an important part of improving the overall health of our community. St. Anthony’s Medical Center is continuing its work towards that goal by increasing its community benefit grant to support the Hancock Place Health Clinic.
 
The Hancock Place Health Clinic, operated by the non-profit Institute for Family Medicine (IFM), is a walk-in clinic serving students and staff of the Hancock Place School District along with all residents of the 63125 ZIP code in Lemay at no out-of-pocket expense to the patients.
 
This year, St. Anthony’s is increasing its grant to $27,320, which will allow for the addition of a dietitian who will be at the clinic one day each month to education patients on diet, exercise and lifestyle choices.
 
The clinic previously used St. Anthony’s grant funding to add women’s health care services (including mobile mammogram visits), mental health services, and extra hours of service, all of which are still in place today. The clinic is open for half-a-day, four days a week. It is located in the same building as the school district’s Early Childhood Learning Center and its administrative offices at 9417 S. Broadway.
