KHEIR Community Clinic Announces Expanded Hours

Now Open on Saturdays to Provide Essential Healthcare for L.A. Residents

(LOS ANGELES, CA - July 9, 2009) - Beginning July 11, KHEIR Center is pleased to announce the KHEIR Community Clinic will be open on Saturdays by appointment only. The extended hours will offer more convenience and flexibility to Korean and Latino residents of Koreatown and neighboring areas of Los Angeles, especially to accommodate the busy schedules of working individuals such as self-employed business owners. Located on the second floor of 3727 W. 6th Street in Los Angeles, regular weekday clinic hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and appointments are highly recommended though not required.

As Korean Americans have one of the highest uninsured rates overall, KHEIR Community Clinic provides health services for many limited English speaking uninsured or underinsured families and individuals who may not otherwise receive medical attention. Programs offered include Primary Care, Men's Health, Women's Health, Prenatal Care, Pediatrics and Family Planning. The KHEIR Community Clinic also operates an in-house dispensary for patients, which reduces their cost for frequently prescribed medications.

With the only full-time community clinic in the United States that offers all services in Korean, Spanish and English with a majority Korean patient base, KHEIR also facilitates access to and utilization of government and community resources by providing information and assistance. The KHEIR Center includes two Adult Day Healthcare Centers, a Human Services Department assisting with enrollment in appropriate low-income insurance programs, and a new Imaging Department offering teleradiology services with the latest in Mammography, X-Ray and full Dexa Bone Densitometer equipment. Annually, KHEIR provides more than 80,000 service visits.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call the Clinic at (213) 637-1070.
