DESC Emergency Shelter Primary Care Clinic

Posted Thu, July 28, 2016

Grantee: DESC - Downtown Emergency Service Center
Timeframe: July 2016 - June 2019 | Amount: $509,116

The goal of the Emergency Shelter Primary Care Clinic is to provide a health home for DESC clients who would otherwise not have access to immediate services, except for a costly and probably unnecessary visit to the emergency room. This project has added an ARNP and will add a medical assistant employed by Harborview to be sited at the shelter.
