Over the past years people like you have helped:
- Keep workers without insurance healthy and at work
- Reduce non-emergent use of the hospital Emergency Room
- Keep families healthy by managing treatable diseases and helping to avoid medical bankruptcy
Here some examples of the programs and services that we provide as part of our legacy of over 20 years of service to Douglas County:
- We can care for a patient for an entire year for just $360 – this includes appointments, referrals, medications, x-rays, tests and health education.
- The majority of Health Care Access Clinic’s patients are employed yet still lack insurance coverage and basic access. A $10 clinic fee is requested from our patients, but, in keeping with our mission, no one is ever denied care due to their inability to pay.
- Our patients benefit from more than $4 million in donated services provided through the generosity of the volunteering medical community, tests and procedures at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, donated medication, and countless volunteers. This is how we turn every $1 of funding into $6.50 worth of essential medical care – a 650% return on your investment.
- 96% of our budget goes directly into patient programs and services while a mere 4% goes towards administration, management and fundraising. Keeping costs low allows us to care for more patients.
