CrescentCare has cause to celebrate this Mardi Gras.
The New Orleans-based Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) recently opened doors to its new 65,000-square-foot facility, made possible through PCDC financing. The project vastly expands primary care, dentistry, pediatrics, and more in a community still rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina.
Joining Mayor LaToya Cantrell and 100 others for the grand opening was Johvanna Sampson, PCDC’s Senior Loan Officer.
“In full disclosure, I’m a New Orleans native, so I’m extra excited to be here,” Sampson said at the February event. “Because what CrescentCare provides are the services that everyone in New Orleans wants, needs, and deserves.”
CrescentCare has long been a primary source of care for the LGBTQ community and people living with HIV and AIDS. The new facility will help expand care for these groups as well as for the broader patient populations of New Orleans.
The new facility is in many ways the culmination of a rewarding partnership: Over six years PCDC has helped CrescentCare build health care delivery, obtain status as a FQHC, and now, extend its ability to provide low- to no-cost care.
CrescentCare was also among six nonprofits honored at the 2017 PCDC Founders Reception; all have become FQHCs through PCDC’s support.
