While All Care Health Center loves to provide integrated healthcare under one roof, the health center knows the importance of providing access throughout the community.
New and returning patients of All Care Health Center can receive care at several locations. Most widely known is the main health center at 902 South 6th Street in Council Bluffs. At this location, All Care provides primary medical care, mental health, dental, a patient pharmacy, and x-ray services all under one roof. This location is also the hub for our access services team that helps community members to enroll in health insurance at no cost. The access services team also helps patients to apply for the sliding fee scale and to find other services that help to fill patient gaps.
All also has a second location, the Florence M. Lakin Health Center, which is housed on the Charles E. Lakin Human Services Campus at 1415 Avenue J, in Suite 2. This three-exam room clinic has provided neighborhood access to primary medical care and dental care since 2019. Special services are also available at this location through a partnership with MICAH House to care for their guests.
New in the fall of 2022 is the All Care Health Center mobile healthcare clinic. This clinic on wheels boasts two exam rooms and a lab draw area. The mobile clinic currently provides primary medical care and psychiatric mental healthcare services, including medication management, for Council Bluffs Community School District students and families at Thomas Jefferson High School and team members and families of Tyson Foods. The mobile health clinic is also utilized for specialty clinics such as sports physical and immunization events.
Some patients prefer to receive healthcare at their own home or work. All Care can complete these visits via telehealth. This service began in the spring of 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic jolted us into a new normal. Telehealth services are available as a bridge for long-distance patient and provider clinical services, such as diagnosis and monitoring. These services can be performed using a patient computer, laptop, tablet, or telephone. Patients should ask if telehealth will meet their needs when scheduling an appointment.
While these options meet most patient needs, All Care provides primary medical and mental health services for New Visions Homeless Services guests. If you know someone currently experiencing the crisis of homelessness, please encourage them to seek healthcare using a homeless voucher. All Care will not deny anyone care based on their inability to pay.
