New Access Community Health Clinic opens

A new Access Community Health Clinic opened at 2202 S. Park St. in Madison, replacing the former clinic in the Village on Park Mall. Named the Joyce and Marshall Erdman Clinic, the new clinic will add dental care and eventually a pharmacy to its slate of medical and behavioral health services. Because it is a federally qualified health center, Access receives federal money to care for low-income people with or without insurance on a sliding fee scale. The $6.5 million clinic was funded in part by a $3 million grant from the Affordable Care Act.
