Supervisors Andersen and Gioia, Cynthia & George Miller, Dr. William Walker and Supervisor Mitchoff 
 

Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) opened the doors on Tuesday, May 6, to its newest health center, which is named in honor of Congressman George Miller and his wife, Cynthia.

The Wellness Center, located on the campus of CCHS' Contra Costa Regional Medical Center in Martinez, is the tenth health center operated by the county health system. A dedication ceremony was held on May 12.

 

The Wellness Center is an example of health reform taking shape on the local level by improving access to care and integrating behavioral and physical health care, said Dr. William Walker, CCHS Director. "This new facility is called a wellness center to reflect the fact that it offers more than just physical care. The focus is on treating the whole person by integrating physical and behavioral health care under one ro of."  

    

The 10,000-square-foot Wellness Center is expected to receive about 70,000 outpatient visits annually. The facility will offer primary care, pediatrics, and same-day appointments. Behavioral health services at the site will include psychiatry, short-term individual and family therapy, outpatient care for substance abuse, support groups, and crisis management and referral into long-term treatment for children and adults.  

 

The wellness center is the second of the county's 10 health centers to integrate physical and behavioral health services. CCHS opened its first such health center in Concord last year.
