Memorial Healthcare and the City of Hollywood are launching the 'One City at a Time' program on Saturday, January 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. offering uninsured or underinsured residents resources and services at no charge. Among the services and resources offered are free medical exams and screenings, vaccinations, nutritional counseling, Medicaid eligibility and insurance enrollment information, referrals to social services and specialists, and access to primary care physicians. The launch of this program is part of Memorial Primary Care’s commitment to proactive health that can prevent or more easily treat chronic conditions before they become a crisis for an individual and his or her family.


The kickoff event on January 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Washington Park Community Center (5199 Pembroke Rd, Hollywood), will also include lunch, food distribution, raffles, a job fair, games, music, and activities for kids. 

Following the January 27 event, Memorial will have its mobile teams at Hollywood locations three days a week for 12 weeks. No appointment is necessary, and all services are free of charge:


  • Tuesdays (9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.) – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center (2400 Charleston Street)

  • Wednesdays (10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.) – Boulevard Heights Community Center (6770 Garfield Street)

  • Thursdays (9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.) – Washington Park Community Center (5199 Pembroke Road)

The “One City at a Time” program seeks to improve the health of communities, in part, by removing barriers to health and care and making it easier for individuals to connect with available resources.

 

Hollywood is the third city in south Broward Memorial has brought its program to in the last eight months (Hallandale Beach and Dania Beach are the others). 

 

It’s all part of Memorial Primary Care’s commitment to proactive health that can prevent or more easily treat chronic conditions before they become a crisis for an individual and his or her family.
