BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Brevard Health Alliance has announced the opening of a new clinic located in Port St. John at 7227 N. Cocoa Boulevard in the Royal Oaks Medical Center.
This new clinic provides access to affordable quality medical care including adult and pediatric medicine, a medication assistance program (free and reduced medications for qualified patients), and assistance with Medicaid and Food Stamp applications.
Brevard Health Alliance accepts most insurance programs, including all Medicaid plans, along with services provided on a sliding fee scale discount rate for individuals without insurance.
Lisa Gurri, CEO, announced a long range plan of incorporating dental services into the medical offerings at the Port St. John clinic starting early 2017.
Gurri emphasized the need to provide access to a medical home where patients have a Medical Provider Team, for medications, urgent and routine medical needs, immunizations, medical screenings, behavioral health services, and assistance with accessing community resources.
This clinic will open with two providers, Dr. Janet Imp and Paige Futch, ARNP.
Imp earned her medical degree at Duke University School of Medicine and completed her pediatric residency at Indiana University School of Medicine. Futch received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at UCF and a Master of Science in Nursing at the University of South Alabama.
Brevard Health Alliance began in 2005 with 16 associates and a desire to improve the health of the medically underserved population of Brevard County. BHA now employs over 300 associates and has registered approximately 98,000 patients.
