About the Centers
The three USI Community Health Centers are the result of a five-year $1.2 million grant to USI from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The grant was a collaborative effort between USI, EVSC, St. Mary’s Health System, and Southwestern Behavioral Healthcare, Inc.
The centers provide primary health care services to neighborhood residents, including students and families. USI undergraduate and graduate students in nursing, respiratory therapy, occupational therapy, food and nutrition, social work, dental and health administration participate in delivering services to patients and neighborhood residents.
The USI Community Health Center at Lodge uses the tagline "Partnering with HOLA for a healthier community," and will primarily serve a need within the Hispanic community. HOLA is a non-profit organization in Evansville with a goal of enhancing appreciation of cultural diversity and promoting the successful inclusion of Latinos in the community.
