G- Health Enterprises and Buffalo Public Schools Partner for food giveaway

On July 9th, G-Health Enterprises and the Buffalo Public Schools partnered to give away over 200 boxes of food to those in need during the COVID 19 Pandemic at their main street location.

GBUAHN is a health home, created under the Affordable Care Act, Section 2703. A Health Home is a group of health and community agencies that have agreed to work together to help people with many health issues get what they need to keep them healthier and safer in the community. Each person who joins gets a “care manager”. A care manager will work closely with him/her to get the services he/she needs in his/her community. This service is being paid for through New York State Medicaid.

There are three GBUAHN locations in Buffalo, N.Y. – one on Jefferson Avenue, Main Street  and one on Niagara Street. GBUAHN provides health care coordination and management for Medicaid beneficiaries with multiple or severe chronic conditions. Prior to the establishment of GBUAHN, health care services for Medicaid recipients were often managed in an expensive and fractured manner.

GBUAHN was designed to be a person-centered system of care that facilitates access to and coordination of a full array of primary and acute physical health services, behavioral health care, and long-term community-based services and supports.

GBUAHN’s mission is to transform health care by removing barriers created by social determinants of health in underserved communities. GBUAHN’s vision is to become the health home of choice for our chosen marketplace. In 2017, GBUAHN opened a new facility at 564 Niagara Street, Buffalo, that also houses Urban Family Practice, an imaging center, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a teaching kitchen and specialists’ offices.
