“We are extremely excited to be expanding access to Bloomingdale and the surrounding areas. Without the support of the Town of Bloomingdale, we would not have been able to expand services. We look forward to serving any and all individuals at our new community health center,” stated Elizabeth Burrows, CEO of VPCHC.
The Bloomingdale health center is comprised of 3,000 square feet and includes state of the art energy efficient features such as a multi-zone HVAC system, high quality insulation values in the roof and walls and energy efficient lighting. In addition, wireless access will be utilized throughout the facility.
VPCHC was one of three health centers in Indiana to be awarded a New Access Point grant by Health and Human Services (HHS) in June 2012. The grant is made possible by the health care law to expand community health centers. The New Access Point funding is a $650,000 grant that VPCHC will receive annually, during the grant cycle.
The health center partnered with Performance Services, Inc., for the design and construction of the Bloomingdale Community Health Center. Performance Services is an Indianapolis design-build engineering company that specializes in constructing and renovating educational and healthcare facilities to deliver optimal environments through both the Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract and Design-Build procurement methods.
