Program Examples

This section provides examples of programs with successful strategies addressing capital development, facility design, and the social determinants of health. If you have excellent examples to share, you are invited to submit them to Phillip Bergquist for consideration.

 

Founded by Lawndale Community Church in 1985, Lawndale Christian Health Center is now a Joint Commission Accredited, Federally Qualified Health Center with sites on the west side of Chicago, serving over 40,000 patients and providing over 190,000 visits of care annually. In addition to providing traditional medical care, it has developed a strategy to improve prevention and address social determinants of health. The strategy includes a full service Health & Fitness Center, a café with healthy food which is open to the community, and even a sidewalk green grocery owned and operated by one of its patients. The fitness center initially obtained grants for equipment and space. However, it is now a fully sustainable program with over 3,000 paid memberships and daily use fees generating over 180,000 visits annually. In addition to standard fitness training, its program includes daily structured workouts for those with chronic illnesses. Read more
