KEY INITIATIVE OVERVIEW
Since opening the doors of Coweta Samaritan Clinic on October 5, 2011, over 33,000 medical appointments have been provided within the Sam Brown Medical Building. In addition, arrangements have been secured for thousands of appointments, and in many cases surgeries, with specialists in our community and beyond. Patient Assistance Programs are coordinated in-house and provide an average wholesale value of over $2.4M annually in free, life-saving prescription medications for our patients. We serve as a medical home for our patients; where they feel comfortable receiving the care they need to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
All our physicians, including the Clinic’s founder and medical director, Dr. Kay Crosby, are volunteers.
Eligibility for becoming a Clinic patient is simple:
Must be a Coweta County resident
19 years or older
Without health insurance
Household income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level
All services are free to patients, including medical, dental, and mental health appointments, tests, disease-specific education and monitoring, procedures, medications, psychosocial support and necessary supplies and equipment. None of this would have been possible without the tremendous support of the community and belief in our mission, values, and vision, long before we ever saw our first patient.
Through the years of serving our patients these needs have been identified and would allow us to provide greater comprehensive care:
Provide on-site dental care.
Provide reliable transportation to/from clinic and specialty provider appointments, and as needed, assist with medication delivery.
Expand the Patient Care Fund to provide much-needed resources to care for our patients.
Recruit additional volunteer medical, dental, and mental health care providers.
Expand access to on-site mental health care.
Based on these findings and the fact that most, if not all Clinic patients, have not had access to dental care in years, we must take action to address the need for additional dental care in the immediate.
You Hold the Key…
Our dream of establishing an on-site dental clinic would greatly enhance our ability to provide life-saving patient care and improve the overall health of our community. Will you please join us in making this dream a reality?
