Committee supports urgent care facility - Gazette

Council Notes | Jeremy Arias | Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2009

Increasing health care options for the elderly and maintaining access to quality care for the underinsured are the two biggest health issues facing Takoma Park, according to survey results presented Monday to the City Council.

A focus group concentrating on 58 lower-income, mostly minority residents cited the cost of health care and access for the underinsured as key issues. More affluent residents identified health care for the elderly and the retention of an urgent-care facility on the Washington Adventist Hospital campus as top priorities, according findings released by the council's Health Services Impact Committee.
