For months we've been reporting at The Luminary about a health clinic of some kind coming to the Parkville Commons and the last episode of The Luminary reported that Heartland Health of St. Joseph would be operating the clinic. Here now is the first official announcement from Heartland...more to come...
Heartland Health is bringing a new kind of healthcare to Parkville Commons. Expected to open July 2012, Heartland Health, a physician-led life care organization will provide the Parkville community with high-quality, convenient, affordable, health and life services.
“We are honored and excited to be a part of the Parkville community,” David Jones, Heartland Health regional administrator, said. “We are offering more than health care, we are offering life care. That means that we are going to equip you with the tools and resources you need to have complete health: mind, body and soul.”
The Parkville Commons location will offer primary and urgent care with providers consisting of physicians and nurse practitioners. Another location, at Burlington Creek, takes a one-stop approach by providing care for the entire family all in one convenient location.
“We are customizing health care,” Jones said. “By eliminating long wait times and unnecessary travel to receive high-quality care, we are able to truly deliver health care to the communities we are here to serve.”
Both locations will offer tools and resources focused on health improvement.
“In everything we do, we do it with this in mind — we are here to be a true community partner by providing limitless avenues to make the Parkville area one of the best places to live a healthy and fulfilled life,” Jones said.
