Chicago, IL – Bradford Allen is pleased to announce that Craig Nadborne and John Skalla arranged the purchase of 5501 S. Halsted Street on behalf of Heartland Health Outreach in Englewood for a new permanent health center for people who are experiencing instability with housing. Heartland Health Outreach already has two full-service community health clinics on the city’s Near West Side and in Uptown.
Heartland Health Outreach (HHO) was founded in 1985 as a National Healthcare for the Homeless demonstration project. Since that time, it has grown to become a federally qualified health center and leader in providing healthcare to our most vulnerable populations – those who are homeless, suffer from mental illness or addictions or have multiple chronic illnesses. Today, HHO is a $24 million organization with a dedicated staff of more than 230 professionals, who provide care to more than 12,000 individuals in the Chicago metropolitan area each year.
The nearly 8,000-square-foot center will provide primary care, mental health services, substance use treatment, and assistance with linkage to housing, assistance with applying for benefits, entitlement and more. Construction is expected to cost about $3 million and will start in August, with the center due to open in January 2018.
