After 25 years of offering services to persons living with HIV/AIDS in Aurora, Open Door Health Center of IL will relocate from its current office space on Lincoln Avenue to new space on the Amita/Mercy campus located at 1315 N. Highland Ave., Suite 204 in Aurora.
The move is prompted by a need to accommodate the increasing number of clients requesting service, said Perry Maier, executive director of Open Door Health Center.
“We are at the point where our current space is limiting our capacity to effectively and efficiently deal with the medical, behavioral health, case management, housing and outreach needs of our clients,” he said. “Larger space will enable the staff of Open Door to continue our rich history of quality services to meet the demand within the Aurora Community.”
Open Door is a regional, patient-centered health care organization that provides services including education, prevention, diagnosis and treatment services to those who have or are at risk for Sexually Transmitted Infections, including HIV/AIDS, in addition to the greater LGBTQ community.
Open Door Health Center of Illinois envisions a world where HIV does not exist, the community has ample resources to test and treat sexually transmitted infections without the fear of stigma, and the LGBTQ community has equal access to care without discrimination. Open Door Health Center provides services in Kane, Kendall, DuPage and DeKalb counties.
The relocation is expected to occur in mid-Spring of 2019.
