Health Department opens WIC clinic at CPO’s O’Reilly Center for Hope


Springfield-Greene County Health and Community Partnership of the Ozarks are partnering to make Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) services more accessible for families near the O’Reilly Center for Hope in the Robberson neighborhood. The new clinic location will allow the program to reach more families to provide important nutritional and developmental services.  

The new satellite clinic is open for appointments every Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1518 E. Dale. Interested families can call 417-864-1540 for more information and to schedule an appointment.  

WIC is designed to improve the overall health of families by providing nutritional health support to pregnant and breastfeeding parents, infants and children up to the age of 5. The WIC program joins more than 18 services available onsite at the O’Reilly Center for Hope, including employment assistance, medical services, food assistance programs, housing services, legal aid and mental health support. “This will help to reduce barriers and provide more comprehensive support to our community,” says Michelle Garand, vice president of affordable housing and homeless prevention at CPO.   

The new satellite clinic will replace the clinic previously hosted by Pathways United Methodist Church. This clinic served more than 1,800 families from 2009 through 2021. The Health Department is thankful for their more than 20 years of partnership with the WIC program. 

The Springfield-Greene County WIC program’s main office is located inside the Jordan Valley Community Health Center building at 440 E. Tampa St. in Springfield. The second office is located in Republic at 553 E. Harrison. Hours are by appointment.
