wellness-leafThe PHC Wellness Center is located in the orange house directly across the parking lot at our East Side Clinic. The Wellness Center focuses on improving the overall health and wellness of the community by addressing personal health and wellness issues, as well as broader social barriers to health such as transportation, housing, food insecurity, and access to education. Our current programming is focused on serving PHC patients, but over time we hope to open up the center to the greater Des Moines community.
