TCA Health, Inc., a federal-qualified health center (FQHC) in Chicago, Illinois, opened a new grant-funded behavioral health and supportive services wing. The programming will provide expanded access to counseling, case management, and other evidence-based practices to support recovery-promotion and provide resources related to addiction disorder.
The 2,700-square-foot, grant-funded project transformed the reception area, waiting rooms, private offices, and counseling area with corridors that connect the newly renovated East Wing to match an earlier renovation of the other side of the building. Renovation of the East Wing also featured new lighting, flooring, paint, acoustic ceiling tiles, stainless steel corner guards, and other finishes complementing the facility.
Established in 1970 as a privately owned clinic, TCA became a FQHC in 1991. Today the health center provides continuous, comprehensive, high quality primary health care services and serves as a medical home for over 7,000 consumers annually. At TCA’s main clinic (adjacent to the Altgeld- Murray Public Housing Development), and its nearby school-based health center at Carver Military Academy, community residents have physical and financial access to culturally and linguistically appropriate health care.
The renovation project was supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a substance use disorder-mental health award with 0% financed with non-governmental sources. The new area was renovated by Mosaic Construction, LLC., a full-service commercial and multifamily design-build renovation firm.
