Lakeland Brings Wellness Services to Harbor Towers
Sep 22, 2015
(BENTON HARBOR) – Lakeland Health and the Benton Harbor Housing Commission have partnered to provide wellness services at Harbor Towers, a high-rise apartment complex for the elderly and disabled located at 250 E. Wall Street, Benton Harbor.
This new wellness center, called Lakeland at Harbor Towers, will be located on the facility’s first floor to provide convenient access to the 95 residents of Harbor Towers. Lakeland at Harbor Towers will be staffed by a team of healthcare professionals, such as nurses, social workers, and health coaches. Services will include wellness screenings and one-on-one health consultations.
Wellness services will be available exclusively to Harbor Towers residents during set office hours Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Lakeland at Harbor Towers will also be open to the general public for monthly community health education events, which will be announced as they are scheduled.
“As part of Lakeland’s mission to enhance health and serve our community, we recognize how important it is to meet our patients where they are, in their own neighborhoods,” said Joseph Effa, Director, Lakeland at Home. “We are excited to work with the Benton Harbor Housing Commission on this initiative, and we look forward to making a positive impact on the health of the residents of Harbor Towers and the surrounding area.”
An open house is being planned for residents on Thursday, September 24 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Harbor Towers. Regular office hours will begin Monday, September 28.
