SEAFORD — The new doctor is officially in.

La Red Health Center proudly announces the addition of a full-time family practice physician to its team of health care professional at the new satellite site in Seaford.

“Dr. Andre Blaylock brings extensive experience and expertise in family practice and knows how to respond to the diverse needs of the clients that we serve,” said La Red Health Center Chief Executive Officer Brian Olson.

The recruitment of a full-time physician allows La Red Health Center to serve even more clients at the 1,800-square-foot Seaford site that opened in August. La Red Health Center is now able to offer its services to more families and individuals in the Seaford area and across Sussex County who might otherwise go without care. Similar to the center’s Georgetown location, the Seaford office participates in most local employer sponsored health insurance plans and offers sliding fee scale discounts to uninsured individuals
who qualify.

Since its founding in 2001, La Red Health Center has evolved to become the only federally-qualified health center in Sussex County, meaning it’s a community-based organization that provides comprehensive primary care and preventive care to persons of all ages. Clients travel from throughout Sussex County to receive services in Georgetown and now Seaford.

Dr. Blaylock, certified by the American Board of Family Practice, is a 1980 graduate of the Loma Linda University School of Medicine in California. He completed post graduate training at San Bernadino County Medical Center and Martin Luther King Jr. Hospital, both in California. He has worked in community health settings starting from his days in the 1980s as chief of staff and medical director at Choctaw Nation Indian Hospital in
Oklahoma and later spent 15 years handling urgent care services at Riverside
Medical Clinic in California.

He also rose as a leader among his peers serving as district director of the California Academy of Family Physicians. He came to Delaware with his wife, June, a native of Sussex County.

“We feel very fortunate to have such an accomplished physician work with us as we improve the health of our clients,” Olson said.

The Seaford Satellite Site is located in the Professional Park at 1340 Middleford Road in Seaford and is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. The office is currently accepting new patients of all ages.
