CHI Memorial Center for Healthy Aging is expanding, opening a second location. The new office will be at the Chattanooga Housing Authority’s Boynton Terrace Apartments in the Westside. Alycia Cleinman, M.D., board-certified geriatric and internal medicine physician, is the medical director of CHI Memorial Center for Healthy Aging.
“This community has a large senior population, and we know medical care and medication management can become more complex as we age,” said Dr. Cleinman. “I look to forward to getting to know the residents in this community and working with them as we partner together to address their health care needs and concerns, and work toward creating a healthier community.”
“CHI Memorial has served residents from the Westside for many years”, says Marijka Gray, M.D., president, CHI Memorial Medical Group. “We are pleased to provide the people in this community with health care services right where they live, fulfilling part of the health system’s Vision 2020 plan to increase access to our services, especially in underserved areas of our community.”
CHI Memorial has partnered with the Chattanooga Housing Authority to provide the community with convenient access to medical care. CHA Executive Director Elizabeth McCright said, “While the Westside is home to many families and individuals, we have a strong presence of residents who are over the age of 62 in the community. Having access to healthcare for them is a huge plus. It not only helps the individual but also adds to the quality of life for the entire neighborhood. We appreciate the partnership with CHI Memorial and look forward to the difference their efforts will make.”
CHI Memorial Center for Healthy Aging will host an open house at its new location at the CHA’s Boyton Terrace Apartments next to the community room, 957 Boynton Dr., this Friday from 2-4 p.m. Community members are welcome to tour the office and meet the health care providers. Light refreshments will be served.
"CHI Memorial Center for Healthy Aging specializes in geriatric medicine providing quality health care that helps adults remain healthy and active as they age. Providers focus on managing and treating complex age-related conditions including memory loss, fall and balance issues and dementia-related behavioral problems, as well as primary care and social services to offer support to the whole family and provide access to community resources at the appropriate time," officials said.
