Responding to a need to serve older adults in the community, Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) will open an NCH Medical Group Physician Office inside the Lutheran Home at 800 West Oakton Street. The physician office will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to accept scheduled and walk-in appointments for residents of Luther Village and the Lutheran Home as well as the surrounding community.
A ribbon cutting open to the community will take place at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 26 at the Lutheran Home facility. Coffee and sweets will be served, and residents can learn more about the services offered.
The office will be staffed by Primary Care Physician Michael E. Glickman, M.D., who serves as Medical Director; Gerontologist Jowella Pineda, M.D.; and Nancy Kinyanjui, APN.
“Residents will have the convenience of having a clinic within their community while having the confidence that they will receive the comprehensive and quality care that NCH and the NCH Medical Group stand for,” Dr. Glickman says.
Residents can get to the office from Luther Village by using a free shuttle service that runs hourly from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m. The shuttle is equipped with a wheelchair lift. Free valet parking is available at the Olsen Center entrance.
