This Year's Project: George's Closet--Clothes for those in Need

About Our Organization

At Siouxland Community Health Center, we embrace our core values of commitment, advancement, respect, excellence, and support (CARES) to ensure a quality experience for all who choose the health center for their care. Becoming a level three recognized patient-centered medical home (PCMH) has been an important part of enhancing this experience with a team approach to care that is focused on the patient and provider relationship and improving total patient health. In addition to this work, the health center continues to engage partnerships in the community to increase accessibility and availability of services. Through outreach service sites, referral relationships, and active participation in community planning, Siouxland Community Health Center is committed to ensure that every need is met for our patients. The health center is a progressive organization. Electronic health record technology, expanded facility space, and a strong workforce is a combined infrastructure that is poised for long-term growth and sustainability. As we grow, we thank our friends and community partners for their continued support in our mission and making special projects possible that enhance our programs, services, and care.

Current Project: George's Closet--Clothes for those in Need

"George's Closet is named after long-time Health Center and Foundation Board member George Boykin. Geore is a native of South Sioux City and  has had a distinguished career in Siouxland ranging from his role at the Sanford Community Center, Woodbury County government, the Siouxland Community Health Center (SCHC)and Mercy Medical Center.

Siouxland Community Health Center CEO Mari Kaptain-Dahlen says Boykin played a key role in establishing a community health center in Sioux City.  “George was there from the beginning in 1992,” said Kaptain-Dahlen.  “He could clearly see the need for a city the size of Sioux City to have more healthcare options as the city welcomed new citizens from all corners of the globe.  Because of George’s advocacy we have a Community Health Center today that provides health care to thousands of our residents and continues to grow.”

The Closet is located at SCHC, private donations and donations by staff and outside parties are used to purchase new clothes, coats, hats, gloves, etc. for those in new in the community and those that are patients at SCHC.  Staff notice needs for individuals and families and refer them onto the FOundation to help provide for the ir needs.  Just last winter countless coats, hats, and gloves were given to those were lacking.
