The Korean Health Education Information and Research Center in Koreatown, Los Angeles, announced Tuesday it will open a new community clinic this year.

The center also unveiled a new logo and its rebranding as “KHEIR Clinic.”

KHEIR’s second, upcoming clinic will be located in a 5,400 square-foot space at 3255 Wilshire Boulevard.

KHEIR CEO Erin Pak said they are currently in the process of receiving a license after securing the medical team and completing construction. Fifteen examination rooms, a conference room, consultation rooms and a playroom for children will make up the clinic, she said.

Pak said they are working to expand the community’s healthcare opportunities.

The center opened in 1986 to help bring healthcare to low-income Korean immigrants and has since become a healthcare service for the local community.
