This month, the C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics, which are operated by the Health Care District of Palm Beach County as Federally Qualified Health Centers, marked their first year of providing quality medical care to adults and children. Since June of 2013, the four clinics located at the current Florida Health Palm Beach County (formerly Palm Beach County Health Department) health centers in Belle Glade, Lantana, West Palm Beach and Delray Beach have logged more than 52,000 total patient visits.
“It’s rewarding to see residents of all ages from across the county make the Brumback Clinics their medical home,” said Ronald J. Wiewora, M.D., MPH, FACP, FACPM, the Health Care District’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer. “Our goal is to provide patients access to primary health care services that keep them healthy.”
All four clinics are open Monday through Friday and serve all patients regardless of their ability to pay or whether or not they have insurance. Clinic services for adults and children are provided by highly-trained, qualified and professional medical staff who are Board-certified in the primary care specialties of Family Practice, General Practice, Pediatrics and Mental Health Services.
All patients at the Brumback Clinics have on-site access to pharmacy services and discounted prescription medication through the Federal 340B program. During the past year, more than 1,800 uninsured patients had access to discounted prescriptions that they could not otherwise afford.
