April 20, 2017– Logan University has announced its third partnership with a federally-qualified community health care provider, meeting the demands for an alternative form of healthcare to address musculoskeletal conditions in an underserved population.
This month, Affinia Healthcare, which provides affordable primary and preventive health care to residents of St. Louis and surrounding areas, began offering chiropractic services at their 1717 Biddle Street location.
Overseeing chiropractic care is Barry Wiese, DC, MHA, DIBCN, associate dean of clinic compliance and director of integrated health center development at Logan, and David Mann, DC, Logan’s first integrated spine care resident. They are currently seeing patients three full days per week – expanding from three half days per week initially. Plans are to increase availability of chiropractic services to five full days per week within a month or two.
“This relationship really began as a result of Affinia taking note of how we were integrating chiropractic into other facilities in the community and wanting to be a part of that as well,” said Dr. Wiese. “We look forward to being a vital component of their health care system and making a difference in the lives of the patients we treat.”
In addition to Affinia, Logan has partnerships to provide chiropractic care to patients of Myrtle Hilliard Davis Comprehensive Health Centers and Family Care Health Centers.
