Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are over 35,000 uninsured residents in Baldwin County. Many have high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid and/or pulmonary disease. These illnesses require daily medication and frequently monitored by a physician. If a person works but is not offered insurance through their employer or can not afford the insurance, they may be left to forego medical care. This leads to higher hospital visits and missed days on the job.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to lower cardiovascular risk, keep these people well, working and out of the hospital.

We reach out to all resources in our area for partnerships.

We have partnered with the Alabama Department of Public Health, Thomas Hospital, North Baldwin Hospital, South Baldwin Regional Medical Center, LabCorp, Quest diagnostics and many physicians in Baldwin County. This, coupled with our clinics resources, keep our patients healthier (less hospitalizations) and able to maintain employment.

Our first Clinic began in 1998 in Bay Minette. Since then, we have branched out to open two more Clinics - one in Robertsdale and one in Gulf Shores. We have added Wound Care, Dental Care and Health Education Classes.
