Birmingham Clinic Is Relocating

The Program for Health Care to Underserved Populations (PHCUP) is pleased to announce that the Birmingham Clinic will move into new and expanded space, generously donated by the Salvation Army, its community partner for 15 years. The move will take place on December 1, 2008. The space is within the main Salvation Army complex and will include four closed exam rooms, a larger area for the pharmacy, and an area to be used for mental health team services, counseling and case management, and health education. It will also include a play area for children seen during the monthly pediatric clinic sponsored by SALUD Para Niņos.

As you may imagine, this exciting new space comes with greater expenses, both up front and long term, so the PHCUP offers its heartfelt thanks to its supporters and donors. First and foremost, thanks go to the Salvation Army for continuing the PHCUP missions of serving the most vulnerable patients across Pittsburgh. The PHCUP also thanks supporters who have provided in-kind or financial donations that have helped its clinics evolve.

Considering the slow decline of the economy and the increase in the numbers of uninsured individuals both nationally and in our area over the past several years, the PHCUP's services are needed more and more. If you would like to send a check to the PHCUP, please make it payable to the University of Pittsburgh and write "PHCUP" in the memo line. Mail the check to the Program for Health Care to Underserved Populations, 933W Montefiore Hospital, 200 Lothrop Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.
