5716 Wellness is so named because of the important role it will play in enhancing the health and wellbeing of the community. It is the home of the new integrated health center established through a partnership between Covenant Community Care and Southwest Solutions.
5716 Wellness is a four-story structure that was originally designed by Albert Kahn a century ago as a cigar factory. Here is what the building once looked like (c. 1935, copyright Wayne State University):
Our $12 million renovation preserves the historic character of the building, framed by state-of-the-art construction.
The new health center provides primary medical, pediatric, obstetric, dental, psychiatric, pharmacy and behavioral counseling services. It will serve 10,000 individuals and families annually. All the services are bilingual.
Covenant Community Care occupies the first floor at 5716 Wellness. CCC is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) providing health care services to thousands of uninsured and underinsured individuals and families.
Children, Youth and Families (CYF) programs occupy the fourth floor and part of the third floor. These programs serve families in crisis and children and youth who have a severe emotional disturbance, have been adjudicated by the juvenile court, or are at risk of being placed out of the community due to behavioral problems.
Our ASO, which includes Human Resources and our financial operations, has offices on parts of the second and third floors. John Van Camp (president of Southwest Solutions), Lenora Hardy-Foster (executive director of the ASO), Joseph Tardella (executive director of Southwest Counseling Solutions), and Bill O'Brien (director of Community Partnerships) are based at 5716 Wellness.
