JSCDC - Bringing Health Care to Warrendale

Joseph Ellison of the Joy-Southfield Community Development Corporation addressed the Warrendale Community Organization at last night's membership meeting. He discussed the various projects that they have, most notably their health care program.

The Joy-Southfield CDC operates a walk-in clinic for individuals who don't have health insurance and can't afford to pay for it on their own. They welcome all patients and simply ask that you pay whatever you can afford. The clinic is located at 18917 Joy Rd., between Stahelin and Artesian.

They offer:
  • Primary health care for adults;
  • Physical exams for school and work;
  • Chronic disease management;
  • Diabetes, cholesterol, hypertension and prostate cancer screening;
  • Laboratory services;
  • Referrals to out-patient diagnostic testing;
  • Assistance with locating additional health care resources;
  • Preventive health education;
  • Referrals to specialists.
The clinic is open on Tuesdays from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. They are also open on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
