ACTION MAY BE TAKEN
Project H.O.P.E. is excited to report that we have completed our Capital Campaign. As of June 30, 2016, we have raised $40,473.00, which far surpassed the original goal of $30,000.00 established at the start of the campaign in 2014. We are grateful to our donors and supporters whom have helped us reached this point in our campaign.
Project H.O.P.E. held a Dedication Ceremony on January 13, 2016 for the new West Street Health Center located in Camden, NJ. Residents of the community, representatives from other health care as well attended the event.
“The new health center will greatly enhance our ability to deliver the primary care and behavioral health services for the many patients that depend on us, said Patricia DeShields, CEO of Project H.O.P.E.. “I want to thank the Federal government and the City of Camden for their outstanding support and all of the professionals who have helped make the West Street Health Center a reality.”
According to Medical Director Lynda Bascelli, the new facility will triple the exam rooms for family health services, and create separate areas for behavioral health services and a large ground floor community room for educational events and community functions. “We offer expanded services including flu shots and treatment for asthma, diabetes, and hypertension,” she said.
The West Street Health Center is open Monday through Friday. The hours are 8:00 am – 7:00 pm on Mondays and 8:00 am – 5:00 pm Tuesday through Friday. All patients are welcome to receive care regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
