Community clinics like ours are staffed by dedicated doctors and nurses who want to give back to their community, but without support from our donors, we wouldn't have the resources or tools they need to do this work well.
For the uninsured or underinsured, ignoring health problems could seriously affect their life. Without access to preventative care and regular check-ups, they may end up in our already overcrowded emergency rooms. Medical bills may pile up until they become overwhelming, and the stress of dealing with these issues may cause loss of sleep, or they may even stop eating properly. It's hard for people like this to get the help they need without worrying about how they'll pay for it later. We're facing a crisis of underfunded healthcare for people without insurance.
The Salvus Center was created to solve this problem by providing free and low-cost primary care services regardless of ability to pay, including physical exams, lab tests, x-rays, and treatment for common illnesses like colds and flu or bronchitis symptoms and reduced prices for prescription medicines.
By using a combination of donations from the community, government funding, and private foundations, we can provide low-cost medical treatment and prescription assistance programs for those who otherwise would not have access.
Our work has grown year after year, but so has the cost of providing care for those who cannot afford it on their own. The number of patients who are unable to afford basic healthcare is increasing every year. This problem is only getting worse, and without your help, there will be no way for us to continue providing free and low-cost health care in our community.
The uninsured in Sumner County is at 10.9% or close to 20,000 individuals and their families and this number is increasing year over year." -Jennifer Flanagan, CEO
