Lloyd Mccoy Health Center
The Lloyd McCoy Health Center (LMHC) is a state-of-the-art facility which opened in June 2010. Located in Warren, Ohio and operated by the Ohio North East Health Systems, Inc. (aka ONE Health Ohio), it is named after an 11 year old child who lost his life as a result of local gun violence on April 21, 2009. The site is designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) providing medical, dental and behavioral health services through its seven dental operatories and nine medical exam rooms. In 2011, the ONE Health Ohio organization had over 23,000 dental encounters representing 46% of all patient encounters. Over 92% were at or below the 200% of the federal poverty guideline.
ONE Health Ohio currently operates five facilities and one mobile health van program in three northeast Ohio counties. These access points predominantly serve the medically uninsured and underinsured population and draw from 16 surrounding counties in two states. In 2011, the combined health centers saw 57% uninsured patients offering a sliding fee scale payment plan. The dental program is responsible for the management of 25 dental operatories across all of its sites and currently employs four full-time dentists, two hygienists and 12 dental assistants and clerical workers. The family mobile van provides services predominantly to inner city schools of Youngstown and Warren offering both medical and dental care.
Dr. Christopher McCord serves as the dental director for the entire ONE Health Ohio dental program and practices at the Lloyd McCoy site, providing comprehensive dental care, ranging from simple and complex extractions to a variety of tooth restorations. A full time hygienist rounds out the preventive dental services, offering not only dental cleanings and sealants, but nutritional and oral hygiene counseling. Same day appointments are available, and every effort is made to assess and treat patients’ dental needs in a timely and compassionate manner, with the primary goal of offering high quality, premium dental care in a soothing and caring environment. The facility’s stunning treatment rooms, equipped with flat panel televisions, increase the quality feel, and aid in alleviating patient anxieties as well as offering a form of entertainment.
Future plans for ONE Health Ohio’s dental program is to expand services through the addition of a pediatric dentist and continue with its geographic expansion plans in order to increase access points to meet the needs and demands of the local population.
The Lloyd McCoy Health Center is located at 1977 Niles Road in Warren, Ohio. Appointment times are available between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
