Spokane, WA. December 5, 2016 – Palouse residents will soon have increased access to dental services thanks to the upcoming expansion of Latah Community Health, a CHAS Health clinic in Moscow, Idaho. This service builds on the already comprehensive services of the clinic including medical, behavioral health, and pharmacy; and expands dental from 1 operatory to multiple chairs.
CHAS Health will reopen the health center in the new Gritman Medical Center on December 12th. The move will increase the health center facility from 2,500 square feet to 9,800 square feet. All existing services will continue to be provided at the new site, and the additional clinic space will allow for more primary medical and behavioral health care. The new space also allows CHAS Health to expand the dental services that began in October 2016 from a single chair operatory to 6 chairs, one dedicated to hygiene. All services will continue to be available to everyone, regardless of insurance status.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to grow in this community,” states Aaron Wilson, CHAS Chief Executive Officer, “Expanding dental services to Moscow-area residents is one step further in ensuring quality healthcare for everyone.”
Latah Community Health originally opened in 2013 due to a combination of efforts by the City of Moscow, the League of Women Voters, Gritman Medical Center, and CHAS Health. This was a response to the growing number of requests for social services in the Palouse. The clinic currently serves over 1600 patients in the Moscow area.
