AAPHC leaders say they aim to serve the uninsured and undeserved through specialized programs.

“Overall between both sites we see close to some 1,800 to 2,000 patient encounters a month, and so as you can see, originally when we started OBGYN services, we were only doing like 900 encounters a month," said Clifton Bush, the Chief Operating Officer at AAPHC.

This is the center’s second women’s health facility.

Services include both OB and GYN.
