Since opening in February 2013, the new clinic spaces at OneWorld’s Livestock Exchange Campus have been caring for more people than ever before. “This expansion allows us to provide services to 12,000 more people,” said Andrea Skolkin, OneWorld CEO. “These new facilities allow us to provide state of the art health services to everyone,” she added. The expanded campus was made possible by an Affordable Care Act grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration Bureau of Primary Health Care, local grants, low income housing tax credits and community donors.
The expansion project boosted the economy of the community by providing approximately 160 construction jobs and will add 120 full-time health care positions within five years.
Highlights of the expansion project include two new four story buildings with OneWorld occupying the first two floors of each building and the third and fourth floors dedicated to affordable apartment homes specifically for seniors (32 apartments in all). The new campus buildings include a Women’s Health Center with 27 exam rooms, ultrasound facilities and patient education space; an expanded Quick Sick urgent care clinic with 9 exam rooms and Baby Boutique. The WIC Clinic moved to their new home on the first floor of the Livestock Exchange Building in May 2013.
