Alder Health Begins a New Journey

Alder Health Services announced that after almost fifteen years of service, President/C.E.O. Philip K. Goropoulos will be leaving the Agency on April 24, 2014. The board of directors has formed a search committee and has begun the process of finding a replacement.

On behalf of the board, the staff, the volunteers, the clients and the community, Alder Health Services would like to thank Mr. Goropoulos for his dedicated service to the Agency and the region. During his tenure, Alder Health Services evolved from an AIDS Service Organization to a comprehensive medical, mental health and support services program dedicated to meeting the needs of individuals living with HIV and those who have traditionally been marginalized by the healthcare system including members of the LGBT community and those struggling with addiction in South Central Pennsylvania.

Lauri Slatt, the Agency's Vice President, will serve as Interim President/C.E.O. while the Agency completes a search for the new chief executive.

Everybody Can Do Something...

In 1985, a non-profit organization was born from the drive, energy and compassion of volunteers in Lancaster County as they strove to meet the challenges faced by individuals, families and communities in the early days of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Central Pennsylvania. While much has changed since the early years of all-volunteer services offered out of a church basement in Lancaster County, Alder Health Services continues to embody the creative and compassionate spirit which led our organization's founders to offer strong, resourceful and affirming community-based solutions to challenges in our community.

Now offering medical care, mental health services, STD screening and treatment, and HIV/AIDS services as well as Alder Health's newest venture -— The Tree House at Alder Health -— dedicated to meeting the needs of homeless LGBT youth and young adults, Volunteers are essential to the Agency's efforts to meet the growing health needs in our community.

All of us can help make a difference in our community. As Daniel Tiger from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood says, " Everybody is big enough to do something."

New Year, New Hours

STD Program Expands Hours To Meet Community Need

To start 2014, Alder Health Services will be making a few changes to our schedule in order to better serve the community. In addition to expanded access to medical and mental health services (including psychiatric services) at the Harrisburg location, Alder Health is also expanding the availability of the free STD screening and treatment program and HIV testing services offered each week.

With the start of January, the STD and HIV testing program will be available on the following days and times each week:

- Harrisburg - Every Wednesday (1PM to 8PM)

No appointment is necessary to access STD screening and HIV testing at Alder Health Services. Individuals in need of services may walk-in during the above hours at each location.

Please note: Watch for special STD and HIV Testing events in Lancaster in the coming months. The weekly STD and HIV Testing program at the Lancaster location has been suspended at the current time due to low utilization.

For more information please call 1.800.867.1550.
