Asian and Pacific Islander Wellness Center
Services are free-of-charge
OPENING March 11, 2011
Hours: Fridays from 1 - 6pm
For over a year, A&PI Wellness Center has been preparing for the opening of the Wellness Clinic. This painstaking process has us poised to serve the needs of the A&PI and LGBT communities with an expert staff, expanded treatment capabilities, and cutting-edge recordkeeping technology.
Initially, our core staff will provide basic primary care services. This highly diverse team of four physicians, five nurses and three clinic receptionists are committed stalwarts to the Wellness Clinic vision. With expertise in both LGBT and A&PI health, as well as experience abroad, The Wellness Clinic can ensure that clients receive both culturally and linguistically competent care. Clients will experience not only the best care possible, but also improved overall health and wellness.
The Wellness Clinic will serve to bolster our already innovative model of HIV care. By expanding the portfolio of chronic disease treatment and management to include diabetes, asthma, hypertension and more, the clinic will be able to contribute to the overall well-being of our local community.
Technology will also play a key role at the Wellness Clinic. Electronic Medical Records will enable clinic staff to pull charts, records and information quickly without the possibility of being lost, misplaced, or destroyed. Another advantage to storing records electronically is the ease with which records can be transferred. This capability is especially important in cases where clients require hospitalization or specialized care, or move to another city or state.
Visit us in March to meet our staff and find out more about our services. We look forward to serving your needs in the years to come!
NOTE: Our HIV Primary Care Clinic will continue on Mondays, uninterrupted.
The Wellness Clinic provides holistic, high quality, culturally competent and linguistically accessible primary health care, preventative care, and early intervention as well as behavioral health services. Our services are available free-of-charge for low income, uninsured or under-insured San Franciscans who would otherwise have no access to health care.
Who We Serve
We welcome and accept adults of all sexual orientations, genders, marital status, family configurations and different mental and physical abilities. If you are Asian, Pacific Islander, or LGBT, our Wellness Clinic will provide you with the comprehensive, compassionate, culturally-sensitive care you want and need and can't always get from other health care providers. We seek to deliver quality health care in a caring atmosphere to strengthen our community's health and well-being.
Services are offered on an outpatient basis and will emphasize early intervention, health education, and prevention of illness. Our expert medical team is comprised of dedicated, committed professionals who serve without financial compensation.
