Public participation in the planning of a new Mountain Park Health Center clinic Public participation in the planning of a new Mountain Park Health Center clinic Research indicates that community-oriented initiatives for health, food, recreation and other domains are most effective when they are prepared, initiated, and carried out in close collaboration with the affected and targeted population (Cargo and Mercer, 2008; Wallerstein and Duran, 2010). Lack of or poor quality of public engagement can conversely lead to an underutilization of the offered health services and financial losses for the health service organization. (MPHC) has selected a site for and is now in the process of designing a new clinic (relocating the MPHC-East clinic, currently at 690 N. Cofco Center, Phoenix). As a non-profit organization MPHC is dedicated to provide health services that are affordable, accessible, culturally appropriate, and clinically sound for the communities in which they are embedded. With the focus on serving the community, MPHC seeks advice on how to best involve the target population (same as for the current MPHC-East clinic)1 into the planning process for the new clinic.
