Pillar Health, a division of the Kenosha Community Health Center, is opening its first location at 4006 Washington Road in Kenosha this September. Pillar Health will provide integrated medical, dental, and behavioral health services in a health home model. The model is designed to place patients and families at the center of care delivered by a team that utilizes evidence-based approaches and resource referrals to address individualized needs.
“What makes Pillar Health unique is the addition of specialized professionals who work as part of the broader care team to provide services aimed at helping individuals address non-medical social needs that can be barriers to addressing and achieving optimal health. In addition, the medication support program helps individuals access needed medicinal treatment at significantly discounted rates,” shared CEO Mary Ouimet.
The new facility will be located at the former Herzing University, strategically chosen along a qualified census tract and close to a homeless shelter, public high school, and housing developments. The renovated location will support a high degree of collaboration and coordination between team members that are required to develop a personalized plan that is comprehensive and inclusive of both medical and non-medical needs. Patients may even see multiple care team members during the same visit.
“Pillar Health services are designed to be accessible for all in the community, well-coordinated, convenient, and sensitive to the challenges and stressors present for individuals and families,” stated Board President Tamarra Coleman.
Grand Opening Events
An open house for the business community and an official ribbon-cutting are planned for the evening of July 14th. A neighborhood open house is currently being planned for August 10th to welcome the community to take a building tour, meet the Pillar Health team, and enjoy food and refreshments before the facility opens in September.
Pillar Health and Kenosha Community Health Center are stepping up to provide vital mental health services in response to the alarming increase in mental health issues among teenagers in Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth Counties, Wisconsin.
