Today, Community Health Alliance of Pasadena (ChapCare) announces the addition of Obstetrics (OB) services at its Lime health center in Monrovia.
Early access to OB services during a pregnant woman’s first trimester is critical to increasing healthy birth outcomes and early identification and treatment of health conditions among infants, which can prevent death or disability and enable children to reach their full potential.
On April 6, 2016, ChapCare began providing OB services at its Lime health center. ChapCare Lime is conveniently located at 513 E. Lime Avenue, Suite 102, Monrovia, CA 91016, just 4 blocks from downtown Monrovia.
OB services are available on Wednesdays from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Chapcare accepts Medi-Cal and Medicare, many Covered California and private insurance plans, and participates in Los Angeles County’s My Health LA (MHLA) Program.
“Improving the well-being of mothers, infants, and children is an important public health goal,” said Margaret B. Martinez MPH, ChapCare’s Chief Executive Officer.
“ChapCare is proud to add OB services to the vast array of primary healthcare services available at our Lime health center.”
