BENEFITING: YORK COUNTY COMMUNITY ACTION CORP
Our journey to establishing this state-of-the-art facility began back in 2004, when YCCAC first opened the Spruce Street Health Center to help mitigate the area’s profound need for primary health care. Serving just a handfull patients in its first year, the Health Center underwent several expansions in efforts to meet the demand for service, with approximately 3,000 current patients. Finally, in 2012, YCCAC received a $650,000 federal grant to expand and relocate the health center to its new space at 15 Oak Street in the former Nasson College Science Center building. This new clinical space occupies 9,100 square feet to accommodate upwards of 6,000 patients.
While these federal grant funds support a portion of the capital and operational costs associated with a health center of this size, additional funds are needed in order to:
• Outfit the new site with high-quality medical and dental equipment; and
• Offset the Health Center’s operational costs, which will be exceptionally high during the Center’s two-year “ramp up” period.
Today, we are pleased to announce the launching of our Complete the Dream campaign, a portion of which we are hopeful to raise through Crowdrise. We hope you would like to be part of our efforts to meet the health care needs of York County residents, today and for many years to come.
