Non-Profit “The Effort” Announces Name Change At Grand Opening Of New Community Center

On Tuesday, February 19th, non-profit agency, The Effort, held grand opening ceremonies at their new Rancho Cordova Community Health Center, (10423 Old Placerville Road), which houses a primary care medical clinic for all ages and state-of-the-art children’s dental clinic.

The celebration heralded the announcement of the change from their longstanding name, “The Effort” to the on-site unveiling of their new logo and name, “WellSpace Health,” which better reflects the agency’s mission and the scope of services they provide.

 

Elected Dignitaries who addressed grand opening attendees included Congresswoman Doris Matsui, Senator Darrell Steinberg, Assemblymembers Ken Cooley, Roger Dickinson, and Dr. Richard Pan.

 

“This is a monumental day for our organization, clients and for our community,” said WellSpace Health Chief Executive Officer Dr. Jonathan Porteus. “We believe that the name change better aligns our organization with its core mission and vision, while the new health center location will expand our ability to serve as a health home for underserved individuals and families in Rancho Cordova.”

 

The primary care services will be provided in 13 exam rooms and an on-site lab. In the pediatric dental clinic, two full-time dentists will operate with five chairs.  The child-centered design features overhead flat screens, enabling children to watch movies during their visits, while surrounded by murals depicting the landscape and its Native American heritage.

 

Established in 1953, WellSpace Health is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) offering primary care, pediatric dental care and specialty and integrated behavioral health services. WellSpace Health focuses on the needs of the community and strives to provide access to health services for patients with Medi-Cal and Medicare.

“I am extremely pleased to stand with WellSpace Health in their mission to care for our low-income and underserved populations,” said Congresswoman Doris Matsui, (D-Sacramento)  “Everyone deserves access to health care services and it’s exciting that our community will be able to utilize this new facility and the care it provides for many years to come."
