Clinic celebrates National Health Center Week with Children’s Health Day
Community Health Centers, like Health Partnership Clinic (HPC), provide innovative health service delivery to more than 30 million patients! Each year, we celebrate National Health Center Week which is a great time to spread the word about our health center and the good work we are doing for the communities we serve.
This year’s theme is “The Chemistry for Strong Communities” and it will be celebrated Aug. 8-14. This special week provides us with an opportunity to also honor our public servants, patients, employees, volunteers, consumer board members and others.
One of our featured events is our Children’s Health Day, which will be Saturday, Aug. 14. The goal is to provide a safe and affordable way for area parents to access care. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Olathe location, 407 S. Clairborne Rd. Parents must schedule an appointment by calling 913-648-2266.

For the safety of our patients and staff, we request one parent/guardian with a child along with minor siblings. Parents and children are asked to wear a mask and socially distance. Children and/or parents who exhibit any COVID-19 symptoms, should stay at home.

The week will be kicked off on Sunday, Aug. 8 with Public Health in Housing Day. HPC is donating 800 pediatric dental kits to Mission Southside. These kits will be given to children living in public housing. On Monday, Aug. 9, complimentary personal care bags will be distributed to SafeHome clients and free water will be distributed by the Mobile Health Clinic, a collaborative partnership between HPC, the Olathe Fire Department and Olathe Health. We will also be recognizing our patients, stakeholders and staff during the week.
National Health Center Week is a wonderful opportunity to highlight the important role of community health centers. We are not just healers, we are innovators who look beyond medical charts to address the factors that may cause poor health, such as poverty, homelessness, substance use, mental illness, lack of nutrition and unemployment. In addition, we care for everyone, regardless of insurance status. As unemployment rises and more Americans lose their employee-sponsored health care, HPC and other community health centers will be the key to keeping America healthy.
We are accepting new pediatric and adult patients.
