During this past month, there has been a significant expansion in physical space for Elica Health Centers, including the addition of three new clinic facilities in Sacramento, which were acquired following the closure of another area FQHC, Health for All. They are located in Downtown (V Street), the Franklin/Fruitridge area and Del Paso Heights. The first two locations (pictured below) were operational effective February 1, while the third should open in a matter of weeks. You can read more about this expansion in an article published by the Sacramento Business Journal.
Elica also expanded its space at 1860 Howe Avenue, adding over 11,000 sf to its existing 10,000 sf in order to move various administrative and support functions out of the health centers and consolidate them in a single location. The move made sense from an operational perspective, allowing aligned units like referrals and eligibility to be in close proximity to one another, and it increased the amount of space dedicated to patient care out in the clinics. You can view a video of the official opening of the new space below, along with some photos of the space itself.
