Metro Community Health Center Celebrates Grand Opening in Swissvale

Metro Community Health Center held its Grand Opening on March 31st and is now open for patient care.

SWISSVALE, PA – April 7, 2014 Metro Community Health Center, formerly known as Metro Family Practice, Inc., celebrated its Grand Opening and Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony on March 31st. Congressman Mike Doyle and Metro Community Health Center’s Board of Directors were among those to welcome the nonprofit health center to its new home in Edgewood Town Center.

President of the Board, Phil DenBleyker stated, “At Metro, we are guided in all that we do by the needs of our patients, and we encourage those patients to partner with our clinicians and staff in managing their care. We respond to our patient’s needs with respect for the individual and their beliefs about health and healing. We offer health care to all people, at every stage of life, without regard to their ability to pay for the services they receive. We provide care without respect to race or ethnicity and we provide support and care for the LGBT community, as well as those who are afflicted with HIV and AIDS. We are all part of the fabric of this community, and it is not only Metro’s vision, but also its intention to strengthen and support all members of this community by the work we do here. Metro treated 11,500 patients last year in our former space, and we are projecting 20,000 patient visits in 2014. With the increased patient visits and hiring of new staff to support them, Metro looks forward to doing our part to add to the ongoing economic development of this community.
