ProMedica opens third food clinic at ProMedica Bay Park Hospital

OREGON, Ohio, February 14, 2019: ProMedica has announced the opening of a new Food Clinic at 2751 Bay Park Dr., Suite 110E, Oregon, Ohio, inside the Medical Office Building at ProMedica Bay Park Hospital.

This is the third Food Clinic location, with two others at the Center for Health Services and the ProMedica Health and Wellness Center.

The new location will be open on Thursdays and will provide food to patients in need of healthy food at home. In 2018, over 1,600 ProMedica patients in the Bay Park region screened positive for food insecurity. Patients screening positive can receive a referral from a ProMedica primary care provider to visit the Food Clinic at any of the three locations. 

“The opening of ProMedica’s third Food Clinic location is just one way for us expand our reach in the community and to continue addressing food insecurity and ensuring people have access to healthy food,” said Kate Sommerfeld, President, Social Determinants of Health at ProMedica.

Patients are able to choose their own foods from the clinic, alongside an expert who considers the patient’s needs, health conditions and lifestyle. Patients can receive nutrition counseling from a dietitian, nutrition education from a dietetic technician, healthy recipes, and connection to community resources. Since opening in 2015, the Food Clinics have served more than 6,600 households through more than 28,000 patient visits.
