Family HealthCare Network (FHCN) will be opening its second health center in the city of Tulare on July 5.
The new Tulare Pediatrics center, located at 1008 N. Cherry Street, will be the hub of a partnership between FHCN and Tulare Pediatric Group. Pediatricians already serving the Tulare community, including Susan Haack, MD, Prem Kamboj, MD, Robert Orth, MD and Asit Shah, MD, will be available to assist patients at the center, along with physician assistants Alma Corvera, PA-A, Jose Corvera, PA-C, and Monika Lombardi, PA-C.
FHCN President and CEO Kerry Hydash said the partnership will expand FHCN’s services in the area.
“As an invested health partner in the city of Tulare, Family HealthCare Network is proud to partner with this team of dedicated and trusted providers to help us achieve our mission to provide quality health care to everyone in the communities we serve,” Hydash said in a statement. “The addition of this site in Tulare will complement the outstanding services the team already offers for local residents, and will ensure continuity of care for the region’s pediatric patients.”
Pediatricians with Tulare Pediatric Group are also excited about joining FHCN in partnership at the new location.
“Tulare Pediatric Group’s pediatricians are excited to partner with Family HealthCare Network to continue to care for our medical patients,” Tulare Pediatric Group Pediatrician Dr. Prem Kamboj said in a statement. “We believe they are the best organization that suits our motto, ‘care with compassion.’”
The new facility will welcome both new and existing patients, as well as all Medi-Cal managed care patients. Most insurance coverage will be accepted and a flat rate medical sliding fee will be available for as low as $20.
The center is FHCN’s seventeenth community health center in Tulare and Kings Counties. Its centers offer comprehensive family medical services, including physical exams, chronic disease management, acute care, dental, behavioral health and patient health education.
