Congressman Pete Visclosky today announced Valparaiso-based HealthLinc will receive over one-point-three million dollars from the US Department of Health and Human Services. The funding will allow HealthLinc to continue providing affordable primary care to their patients, including medical, dental, behavioral health and optometry services, regardless of patients' level of health insurance coverage. Congressman Visclosky says he commends the HealthLinc staff for their tireless work to improve the health disparities of our region.
HealthLinc began in Valparaiso as a free clinic in 1996, received look-alike status in 2003 and Federally Qualified Health Center designation in 2006. With the mission to enrich lives by providing access to patient-centered quality health care HealthLinc expanded to six locations; 5 stand-alone health clinics in Valparaiso, Michigan City, Knox, Mishawaka and East Chicago plus a clinic site integrated into a community mental center in Valparaiso. HealthLinc has recently added a 7th site by deploying a mobile medical/dental unit serving school aged children and their families.
