USI receives federal funding for Glenwood Health Clinic

The College of Nursing and Health Professions at the University of Southern Indiana has received a $1.2 million grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The three-year grant, in partnership with the Vanderburgh School Corporation, St. Mary's Medical Center, and Southwestern Behavioral Healthcare Inc., will provide primary health care for Glenwood Leadership Academy children and staff. The clinic also will provide health care services to area residents. The Glenwood neighborhood is among the most medically underserved and culturally diverse community in Evansville.

Dr. Nadine Coudret, dean of the College of Nursing and Health Professions, will serve as project director. She said, "The Glenwood Clinic will strengthen and expand access to primary health care and wellness for Glenwood area residents across the lifespan. The clinic will provide these services to underserved and/or vulnerable populations without regard to income or insurance status."

The clinic will become a valuable clinical training site for USI nursing and health professions students. Graduate level nursing, occupational therapy, social work, and health administration students along with undergraduate students in nursing, occupational therapy, respiratory therapy, dental hygiene, food and nutrition, and health services will participate in the delivery of inter-professional health care services.

The clinic will establish an electronic health records process to support effective patient care and workforce data collection systems. The Glenwood Health Clinic is targeted to become the hub for expanding and strengthen health care to two nearby sites, the John M. Culver Early Childhood Center and the Juan Diego Hispanic Center in year two and three.

Applications are being solicited for the clinic's Operations and Outreach manager and the family nurse practitioner with anticipated start-up of clinic services scheduled for late fall.

This funding announcement comes on the heels of a $2.2 million federal grants announcement last week for the USI College of Nursing and Health Professions to fund two new graduate programs, add resources to the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program, and provide financial assistance through nursing traineeships for undergraduate and graduate students. Total funding amounted to over $3 million for the college.
