Nearly 200 people packed the Kernwood Country Club in Salem last Thursday, May 14th to support Lynn Community Health Center’s “Women for Lynn Community Health Center Recognition Breakfast,” an annual event recognizing those who have contributed to the health and well–being of women and girls. In response to the growing heroin epidemic in the City, proceeds from the event will be designated to expanding the health center’s program to treat substance use disorders.
On May 19, Lynn Community Health Center will launch a new Electronic Health Record (EHR) system that will enable us to better manage your care. We appreciate your patience as we adjust to the new system.
There are several things you should know about this transition:
- We ask for your patience and understanding as we adjust to our new system. There may be longer than usual delays for the first few weeks.
We want to thank The Women’s Fund for supporting this wonderful resource for new and expecting moms. This bi-weekly drop in support group is led by a lactation consultant who is there to support and encourage women who are breastfeeding.
On May 7th Lynn Community Health Center will receive the Mental Health Humanitarian Award. It is being presented by the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology as they become William James College. We are so honored! For more information visit mspp.edu.
We have only a short time to act!
At the end of September Lynn Community Health Center, along with every other federally funded community health center in the United States, will lose up to 70% of our federal funding unless Congress acts to avert a “funding cliff.”
For Lynn Community Health Center this means a loss of up to $2.3 million, resulting in up to 1,230 people in our community losing access to healthcare.
