Jubilee Park Community Clinic to open Aug. 1

Parkland Health and Jubilee Park & Community Center partner to bring vital health services to Southeast Dallas

The Jubilee Park Community Clinic, a joint venture between Parkland Health and Jubilee Park & Community Center, is set to expand health and wellness services to Southeast Dallas County beginning on Monday, Aug. 1. The clinic, located at 820 Ann Ave., Dallas, 75223, will offer primary care and dental services for people of all ages. The second floor of the 15,000-square feet, two-story health clinic will house mental health services provided by Jewish Family Service.

This joint venture will help to lessen the shortage of physicians in the 62-block neighborhood service area between Fair Park and Interstate 30. The project is anticipated to expand access to healthcare in the area with the clinic projected to serve 3,500 patients in its first year and about 7,000 patients per year thereafter.

“This area was identified in the 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment as an area with significant healthcare disparities,” said Christina Mintner, Parkland’s senior vice president of Population Health. “We know Parkland cannot do it alone. The only way to effectively address health disparities in Dallas County is to work collectively within communities. Our partnership with Jubilee will help address the non-medical factors that influence health outcomes, like economic stability, education, food and community engagement.”

A series of community events and an official ribbon cutting will occur in early September, marking the launch of all services. Due to national supply chain issues, the dental clinic opening will be delayed until early 2023, Mintner noted.

“The clinic will be a true game-changer for the greater southeast Dallas community,” said Marissa Castro Mikoy, President & CEO of Jubilee Park & Community Center. “Leveraging the expertise of Parkland, Jubilee and Jewish Family Service will move the community towards improved health outcomes and health equity. Both Parkland and Jubilee are so proud of this collaborative effort and look forward to our work together for years to come.”

Patients can schedule an appointment at the Jubilee Park Community Clinic by calling 214-266-4000.
