Project NeighborHealth

Project NeighborHealth

Project NeighborHealth was instituted by Willis-Knighton to directly reach out to people in medically underserved areas of the Ark-La-Tex. Project NeighborHealth operates two clinics in Shreveport, WK Community Health & Education Center in the Martin Luther King neighborhood, and WK Community Health and Wellness Center in the Allendale neighborhood in addition to WK Bradley Medical Clinic in Bradley, Ark. Each clinic provides care to patients regardless of their ability to pay. The clinics offer not only access to care but educational opportunities that promote prevention and well-being. The WK Community Wellness Center in the Allendale neighborhood offers a fitness center with low membership rates and is believed to be the first fitness center in the nation which was developed by a hospital to serve a medically-underserved neighborhood. The Children’s Dental Clinic located in the Cedar Grove neighborhood in Shreveport is staffed by volunteer dentists and is available to children who do not qualify for government dental coverage and whose parents cannot afford dental care.
