Welcome to the neighborhood Tri-Cities Community Health Clinic

Tri-Cities Community Health board of directors and representatives from the Kennewick School District held a grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting for the new school-based health clinic at Amistad Elementary on Thursday, March 26. 

“We are so excited to see the Tri-Cities Community Health Clinic opening adjacent to Amistad," state Superintendent Dave Bond. "We all know that healthy students learn better, and having this resource in our neighborhood will give our community better access to health care which will lead to healthier students and more learning.”

The clinic is the first of its kind in the Kennewick School District. It is made possible thanks to a grant awarded to Tri-Cities Community Health by the Health Services and Resources Administration (HRSA).

The clinic provides primary medical care to children and are accessible to any Tri-Cities students and their siblings who wish to use them.

"This is a way to provide easier access for children to receive necessary services ranging from physicals, immunizations, preventive care, and treatment of minor illnesses," said Tri-Cities Community Health CEO Al Cordova.
