Beyond Housing and Affinia Healthcare® Open Health Center at 6763 Page Avenue

 

Beyond Housing has partnered with Affinia Healthcare, one of Missouri’s most significant community health organizations, to bring primary healthcare services to the 24:1 community.  Affinia Healthcare at 6763 Page Ave. held its ribbon cutting ceremony today and a community open house today. Beyond Housing focuses revitalization efforts in the 24:1, the communities that make up the Normandy school district in North St. Louis County.

“Prior to the opening of Affinia Healthcare at 6763 Page Ave., the nearest clinics were in Pine Lawn or Berkeley, a 30-minute bus ride away.  That’s a great distance for a senior who doesn’t get around so well anymore or a single mother looking for a well-baby check-up for her newborn,” said Chris Krehmeyer, President and CEO of Beyond Housing.  “The need has been great for affordable and convenient primary healthcare in the 24:1. We are grateful and excited to partner with Affinia Healthcare to open this health center.”

“This new facility, Affinia Healthcare’s first location outside of the City of St. Louis, expresses our organization’s mission of providing high-quality health care and exceptional service, while promoting healthy lifestyles. We look forward to serving residents within the 24:1 and take great pride in our new relationship with Beyond Housing,” said Alan O. Freeman, President and CEO, Affinia Healthcare.

The 2,800-square-foot-facility will provide affordable medical care for adults and children, laboratory services, afternoon and evening hours, and convenient walk-in appointments. The location will be open six days a week. Affinia Healthcare at 6763 Page Ave. will accept Medicaid, Medicare, Gateway to Better Health and most commercial insurance plans.
