President Lion Jerry Hotseller, dropped off a check for $1,500 from the Speedway Lions Club to be directed towards HealthNet West Health Center!!
Lions care about their community and are interested in its welfare, health standards and progress towards a better tomorrow. Their motto “We Serve” is a testament to the hard work they do every day in the community in which they live and work.
In December 2012, a renovated Blockbuster Store at 6029 West 10th Street, became home to HealthNet’s newest health care facility – HealthNet West Health Center. This current 4,500 square foot center is offering adult primary care, pediatrics and OB/GYN services, podiatry, optometry, social work services, nutrition and smoking cessation counseling, and integrated behavioral health ~ in a community that was struggling with a decrease in access to medical care.
Within the first few months of operation, the center is already vastly exceeding visit projections, and plans are under way to add a Women’s Health area by renovating the remaining 2,000 square feet to include 8 additional exam rooms.
This gift from the Speedway Lions Club will help us kick-off our campaign to raise the remaining funds needed to finish renovation and expand services on the west side of Indianapolis.
