PCC Parkside Family Health Center is the 12th PCC health clinic and represents $1.7 million in investment, said Robert J. Urso, president and CEO of PCC Community Wellness Center. “We’re grateful for the privilege to serve this community and deepen our commitment to the West Side.”
Speaking at Sunday services at Third Unitarian Church, Loretto Hospital President and CEO George Miller Jr. decried the great disparities between those with health insurance and those with none. “This country is rich enough for everyone to get health care,” he said.
George N. Miller Jr. is the first African American to lead the West Side hospital. He is the former CEO and president of CommUnityCare Health Centers in Texas. Miller replaces Dr. Sonia Mehta, who had run the Austin hospital since 2012.
