New Kensington Family Health Center
On Friday, June 4, 2021, St. Margaret Foundation celebrated the grand opening of the new UPMC St. Margaret New Kensington Family Health Center. This facility, six years in the making, was completed in less than a year. With 12 private exam rooms, the center offers primary care, COVID-19 vaccinations, obstetrics, pediatrics, opioid use disorder intervention, psychiatry, social work and behavioral health to New Kensington area residents.
The UPMC St. Margaret New Kensington Family Health Center (FHC), under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Han and Mary Popovich RN, had been at the same location for 19 years without any reconfiguration to accommodate the growing population and community public health needs. The clinic operated in 1/3 of the municipal city hall in the space that was originally the John F. Kennedy Elementary School. The FHC staff adapted to less than ideal and restrictive space despite tremendous growth in patient care productivity.
St. Margaret Foundation is honored to have helped provide a new healthcare facility for the New Kensington community - and we couldn't have done it without the support of our donors.
“St. Margaret Foundation’s partners in philanthropy filled in the gaps with hope and promise to bring the dream of a new community health center to life. We’re grateful for this collaboration and to give this beautiful facility to the people of New Kensington.” - Mary Lee Gannon, president of St. Margaret Foundation
