The center is intended to provide options for healthcare to low-income Dallas residents. JFS estimates that there are 793,007 low-income residents in their facility’s service area.

“We have been working toward this moment for four years,” said JFS COO Deizel Sarte. “The families we serve at JFS are disproportionately impacted by a lack of access to healthcare, and most go without taking care of their medical needs, which only worsens many treatable conditions over time. This was the driving force on the journey to opening this clinic and adding primary care services to our comprehensive care.”

The 5,500-square-foot facility will house 10 examination rooms with dedicated spaces for behavioral health and counseling. Primary care providers can offer physicals, cancer screenings, routine women’s and men’s health exams, sick visits, behavioral health, chronic disease management and other medical services. Anyone who comes into JFS Northpoint Health Center will be granted access to all of the nonprofit’s services, including a food pantry and mental health resources.

“This new health center is a huge accomplishment for the JFS team and an incredible resource for the Greater Dallas community,” said Board Chair Eric Goldberg. “Adding medical services to the many offerings currently provided by JFS will ensure our clients have wraparound care.”

As of Monday, March 4, JFS Northpoint Health Center is officially open. It is located at 12606 Greenville Ave, Ste 200 near Dallas College Richland Campus.
