Mid-Valley Health Clinic now open in Midvale

MIDVALE, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – Monday is the deadline to sign up for health insurance and many people wonder if they can pay for it.

Mayor Ben McAdams and Mayor JoAnn Seghini cut the ribbon on the the Mid-Valley Health Clinic Thursday morning.

The facility is equipped with five patient rooms and a lab. It hopes to bring in over 5,000 patients this year.

It has become a vital organ in the Midvale area.

“We can provide quality care at a lower cost then most clinics can,” said Medical Director Dr. Amy Banks.

It is a care that one mom needs dearly with six kids and four grandchildren not to mention her own health problems.

“I have diabetes, so it is very expensive and just my medical care is very expensive,” said Suzanne Rives-Valle a Midvale resident.

She isn't the only one that needs the help.

“Very fixed income. There is no wiggle room. I'm not going to have this mysterious paycheck come in,” says single mom Pamela Morris, of South Jordan.

When it comes to healthcare bills the clinic offers a sliding scale for families.

“If you can imagine not getting access health care because you have some type of barrier, whether it's transportation or income, clinics like these offer that health care for people that really don't have a place to go,” said Executive Director Kurt Micka.

It’s a place Morris can bring her child.

“When I can help them and not have to have an extra worry, it's always good and I think this clinic is great,” said Morris.

If you need to visit the clinic, it is located at 8446 S. Harrison St. in Midvale adjacent to the Copperview Recreation Center.
