The first health care center to be located in an assisted-rental community within Virginia opens December 17 at Young Terrace apartments located at 804 Whitaker Lane in Norfolk.

As with many urban centers, Norfolk is challenged with improving indicators and outcomes for healthy lifestyles. In that regard Norfolk City Council earlier this year adopted a “Healthy Norfolk” initiative “that through community collaboration will support health and well being by actively promoting health policies, environmental change and education.”

A ribbon cutting event will be held at 11 am December 13 and will include remarks from key partners.

Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA), Hampton Roads Community Health Center and Sentara Health Care are partnering to bring quality affordable health services to lower-income households. Young Terrace with 752 units on 37 acres is NRHA’s largest assisted-rental community. The facility will offer wellness assessments, such as pediatric, geriatric, OB/GYN, dental and other related services. Residents are currently being surveyed on their health care needs.

HRCHC received a $608,333 “New Access Point Grant” from U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). That amount will be equally distributed between Young Terrace and a second health center to be located in East Ocean View. Sentara is contributing $132,000 for renovations to the Young Terrace multi-purpose facility where the center will be located.
