Senator Blunt Stresses Importance Of Community Health Care Centers

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  Senator Roy Blunt says it’s important to recognize the benefit of community health centers.

The G-O-P Senator stressed that message during a visit Thursday afternoon to Affinia Health Care in north St. Louis. Blunt said,  “I think they’re a great example of how you to meet the needs of the community that otherwise would not have their needs met nearly as effectively.” He added: ” Over the years I’ve seen the health centers develop. Another thing I’ve seen is the huge hospital appreciation for the community health centers. Originally I think that hospitals thought well gee this is what we do, only to find out this is so much better than the emergency room.”

Acting Health Director for the City of St. Louis, Melba Moore says she excited about Blunt’s emphasis on the need for community health centers. “It takes some of that burden off of the emergency room, so that the emergency room scan treat real trauma, real emergencies and that’s what it’s about and it’s really putting those services in the community.”

Last year Affinia served over 42,000 patients, many of whom were without insurance or underinsured.
