Margaret Clark Morgan Integrated Primary Care Clinic
In 2008, Community Support Services launched the Margaret Clark Morgan Integrated Primary Care Clinic in an effort to improve the quality of physical health care received by persons with severe and persistent mental illnesses. Research has demonstrated the need for the integration of physical healthcare and behavioral healthcare as individuals with severe and persistent mental illnesses have a life expectancy nearly 25 years shorter than persons who do not have severe and persistent mental illnesses.
The Primary Care clinic is designated by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) as a Medical Home. The clinic offers persons receiving services from Community Support Services with a place to receive care for disease management and wellness management. On-site laboratory services are also available all agency clients. Additionally, podiatry services are available on-site to address the foot care needs of persons receiving services from the agency.
