After their negotiations fell through just weeks before their opening date, Horizon Health Care, Inc. (Horizon) is back on track with a new location. With their new clinic located in the basement of the Johnson Professional Building, Horizon is excited to begin seeing patients on January 13th.
“We have definitely experienced our fair share of challenges, but we stayed positive and we are more than excited to have secured a location,” said Jeff Mengenhausen, Horizon’s Chief Operating Officer. “Thanks to RCE Properties, L.L.C. we are now on the fast track to finalizing our facility and begin seeing our patients.”
Horizon, a community-based network that provides affordable, high-quality primary healthcare throughout 18 medical and dental clinics in South Dakota, received federal funding September 13, 2013 to open a community health center in Aberdeen. The provided funding will help Horizon with their initial start-up costs, securing a permanent location, and continue to help with general operating support throughout the upcoming years.
With their new location, Horizon will provide the Aberdeen community with a wide range of quality health services such as family medicine, pediatrics, emergency treatment, x-ray, lab services and mental/behavioral health.
Horizon’s newest community health center will provide patients with personalized, quality, primary health care with the extra benefit of enhanced resources like the Sliding Fee Program and acceptance of most health insurance, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Avera and Sanford.
Aberdeen Community Health Center is located at 422 5th Avenue SE, Aberdeen SD and will begin accepting appointments on January 13. Clinic hours will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. If interested in scheduling an appointment, please call 605-725-3900.
