Connect: For Healthcare Support

In addition to the Mary Rose Clinic, the Community Foundation supported a variety of programs that expanded affordable high-quality health care services for the underserved in Central New York during the 2014 fiscal year.

St. Joseph’s Primary Health Care Center – West

Now established in its newly expanded facility, St. Joseph’s Primary Health Care Center – West has started to effectively transform the quality and accessibility of health care on Syracuse’s Near Westside. The complex centralizes primary and mental health care services in addition to offering bilingual medical staff, patient education rooms and incentives for healthy lifestyle choices. By expanding both its facility and staff, the center is able to accommodate more patients from this diverse, high-poverty neighborhood. 

Amaus Health Services Clinic at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception

Amaus Health Services, located at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Syracuse, launched a new program that provides much needed dental care services to the uninsured population it serves. Staff discovered that patients without insurance often neglect their teeth for years, which prompted Amaus to introduce a service that offers basic tooth extractions, fillings and cleanings. Our grant helped the organization get this new program off the ground by purchasing necessary dental tools, equipment, and a dental chair.


Christian Health Service of Syracuse

Christian Health Service of Syracuse, which offers primary health care to the medically underserved in Onondaga County, received a grant to add its first full-time nurse practitioner to its staff. This addition allowed the Eastwood-based center to shorten its long waiting list and treat a higher number of individuals in need of a primary care physician. The center averages forty patient visits a week.
