The Community Health Care Clinic was founded because individuals were falling through the cracks of our local healthcare delivery system. These individuals needed a primary medical care provider to address their chronic medical conditions so that they could avoid emergency room visits and lengthy hospital stays.
While the details of how the Affordable Care Act will be implemented are not known, we do know that individuals in our community will continue to fall through the cracks. As health care reform rolls out, it is imperative the clinic continue to fill the gaps in our healthcare delivery system, whatever those gaps may be. The clinic will be responsive to those gaps and remain a critical safety-net provider in our local healthcare delivery system. For more information on how healthcare reform is impacting our local community or if you have questions about the Clinic, please contact me at any time.
