On October 1, local government leaders, community members, and the board and staff of Family HealthCare Network (FHCN) gathered to celebrate the opening of the organization's newest community health center. FHCN's Tulare Health Center marks the organization's 19th site, and 15th community health center in Tulare and Kings counties.
Joined by Rudy Mendoza, field representative for Congressman Devin Nunes, Assemblyman Devon Mathis and City of Tulare Vice Mayor Carlton Jones, more than 120 people attended the Grand Opening Ceremony, which included an official ribbon-cutting and guided tours of the new health center. The health center opened to patients on August 31 and offers comprehensive family medicine and dental services.
"We are grateful for our community partners who came out to support Family HealthCare Network and our newest health center in Tulare," said FHCN President and CEO Kerry Hydash. "The new health center provides expanded access to care for residents of West Tulare and we are proud to now be serving our Tulare patients in their own community."
Located at 263 S. West St., the new health center has 16 exam rooms and four dental operatories and provides the west side of Tulare with 8,900 square feet of new health care space. Free transportation is also available to patients of the health center.
