SAN FRANCISCO — Chinese Hospital East West Health Services celebrated the grand opening of its brand new clinic with ribbon cutting ceremony and health fair in San Francisco last March 26. Mel Lee, Chinese Hospital Association Board president, Dr. Jian Zhang, Chinese Hospital CEO, Deena Louie, CCHP CEO and Chinese Hospital Association Board members, as well as many East West Health Services patients, participated in the joyous celebration.
Attendees had the opportunity to tour the new location and meet the health care professionals who will be providing care. They were also able to participate in a variety of free activities, including health screenings, acupuncture and massage.
“The opening of this East West Health Services represents the culmination of hard work and dedication by the Hospital’s management team and staff. We are thankful for all the support we have received from our community and look forward to providing quality, accessible care to our community,” said Chinese Hospital Association President Mel Lee.
“Twenty years ago, Chinese Hospital started providing safe and effective Chinese Medicine in Sunset Health Services.
With increased demand for Chinese Medicine, we started our first East West Health Services five years ago in San Francisco Chinatown/ Financial District, to develop integrated Chinese and Western medicine for the long term. This is also an effort to make the Chinese Hospital Health System more cohesive and accessible to patients of Chinese Hospital, Jade Medical Group and CCHP Members, and to continue to play an important role in community health development,” said Chinese Hospital CEO Jian Zhang.
The East West Health Services in San Francisco has been serving the community for over five years. The new clinic which opened last March 26 is located at 445 Grant Avenue in San Francisco. This is a new and improved location from the old Commercial Street location. The new location offers more private treatment rooms to ensure higher degree of privacy and make patients feel more comfortable. Patients in San Francisco Chinatown, North Beach and Financial District now have easier access to more convenient care.
The clinic is staffed by health care professionals with expertise in acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, massage therapy and herbal medicine. The clinic also offers educational programs to inspire and enable public to better understand and integrate holistic health knowledge.
East West Health Services’ operating hours is Monday to Saturday, and accept many health insurance plans, including CCHP, Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Heath Net, United Health Care and others.
