HealthPoint's 50 Years of Care for our Community
Celebrating 50 years of providing care for our community. HealthPoint's commitment to health equity and access for all has never been more important. With 11 comprehensive medical clinics, seven dental clinics, four school-based health centers, as well as co-located primary care services locations with community partners, HealthPoint is a key point of entry for people who face barriers to accessing health care.
HealthPoint's philosophy of care is based on the belief that everyone has a right to high quality, comprehensive health care that is accessible, culturally and linguistically competent, community-based, and patient-centered. Our purpose is providing access to health care services in the communities that need them most.
COVID-19 Vaccine Strategy
HealthPoint is centering equity in our COVID-19 vaccine strategy by ensuring that our patients have access to the vaccine. HealthPoint's patient population consists of the populations that are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Currently, HealthPoint is providing COVID-19 vaccinations to eligible patients at each of our clinics. We focus on equity by running patient data reports by diagnoses and demographics and reaching out to the most vulnerable patients in the vaccine-eligible groups to get them vaccinated.
Now, we're building more equity into our COVID-19 vaccine strategy by opening an additional vaccination site where we can direct patients from all clinics. This additional site, located in Renton, WA, will increase equitable access to COVID-19 vaccinations by providing open access.
