Free acute/short term regular medical care for those at or below the poverty level and with no medical insurance or other resources. We have a small surgery center, and we work to ensure our patients receive diagnostic labs & x-rays when needed. (2,384 patient encounters for 2013).
After diagnosis and treatment, we work to find resources to help stabilize the patient’s medical conditions by providing means for medication and specialty care and for ongoing education and prevention. In providing this ongoing services we help to restore patient’s physical and mental health which helps them gain employment or continue being productive in an ongoing job.
We collaborate with and accept patients from other community organizations, (SCCA, FHS, SCDHD, CSI, Homeless Shelters, and Rehab centers) and we provide a “medical home” for these patients with no other resources, and that need acute/short term care until they can afford medical care or gain employment with insurance or qualify for state/federal programs.
