Bloomington-based Chestnut Health Systems has opened its first center designed to meet basic health needs of low-income residents. For decades, Chestnut has offered behavioral health and addiction care, but Dietra Kulicke, the center's director, says this marks the organization's first foray into providing general care for the community at large.


Kulicke says the center has been open since August and has served 464 patients. The clinic is located at the West Chestnut Street campus and is open Tuesdays through Fridays. Kulicke says, as with any other family practice office, visits are by appointment only and same-day appointments are available. Kulicke says Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance is also accepted.
