Pike Street Homeless Clinic Relocating
On Monday, May 22nd, HealthPoint’s Pike Street Clinic celebrated 28 years of providing quality healthcare services to the homeless community in Covington, Kentucky. Beginning Tuesday, May 30th the Pike Street Clinic will relocate and consolidate with HealthPoint’s offices located in Covington, Bellevue and Florence. With this move, Pike Street patients will see upgraded facilities, have access to more services including dental, behavioral health, pediatric and women’s health services, and will have expanded hours to access those increased services and resources.
Sister Ann John Kotch, who has been with the Pike Street Clinic since its inception, will continue to lead HealthPoint’s efforts to reach and treat the homeless community. Her staff will also continue to be an integral part of HealthPoint’s care team at the Covington office. Sister Ann John stated that “it’s exciting for our patients to have more services, hours and resources for support not only in Covington but in all of Northern Kentucky. We will be able to reach more people impacted by homelessness with this new approach to healthcare for the homeless.”
Director of the Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky, Kim Webb, stated that “our clients will continue to utilize and access these new locations. This is a positive step in assisting the homeless community in accessing holistic quality treatment”. Additionally, Chris Goddard, CEO of HealthPoint Family Care, believes that HealthPoint will be able to better meet the needs of a vulnerable population by investing in services, resources and people versus investing in brick and mortar.
