What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Approximately 18,000 people do not have health insurance in McKinney and 11,000 people are living in poverty. Unlike Dallas and Tarrant County, Collin County does not have a county hospital like Parkland or John Peter Smith to serve its indigent population. Therefore, access to primary healthcare and preventative services for the uninsured and working poor in Collin County is a challenge and people often forego seeking medical care because of the high cost of paying out of pocket. As a last resort, the local emergency rooms are utilized in place of a primary care provider, which is an inefficient and costly way to receive primary care services. CommonGood Medical exists to stand in the gap for low-income and uninsured families in our county.

Charting impact

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

CommonGood Medical is aiming to increase access to quality health care services for uninsured patients.

CommonGood Medical exists to share the love of Jesus Christ by partnering with our community to provide quality, compassionate healthcare and resources to our medically underserved neighbors.

Our vision is to see that all Collin County residents have access to affordable, quality health care.

Effectively, CommonGood Medical seeks to do this by becoming a medical home for patients who would otherwise not receive preventative care and wellness education due to a lack of resources.

CommonGood Medical operates a faith-based, free medical, vision, and behavioral health clinic for under-resourced, uninsured patients that aims to strategically grow into a full-time clinic. Health care services include: primary care, optometry, prescription assistance, labs, counseling, spiritual care, and resource/specialty care referral.

CommonGood Medical partners with key community agencies to ensure patients receive quality healthcare services, including but not limited to: Quest Diagnostics, Touchstone Imaging, Project Access, The Center for Integrated Counseling and McKinneyCare Pharmacy. The clinic also works with Americares, Direct Relief, Map International, and St. Vincent de Paul Pharmacy to obtain donated medication at no charge for patients. Other major partners have also included Texas Health Resources Mobile Mammography Program, Moncrief Cancer Center, Baylor Scott & White, the Baptist Immigration Center, LifePath, Rosa Es Rojo, One Heart McKinney, Community Garden Kitchen, The Samaritan Inn, Community Lifeline, Community Food Pantry, and McKinney ISD.

In addition to great community partnerships, the clinic is able to deliver services through a robust volunteer base, totaling about 135 individuals. Many of our medical providers, nurses, support staff, interpreters, patient advocates and clerical staff are volunteers that work alongside a paid staff. These individuals are the heartbeat of the clinic and make CommonGood Medical a success. More volunteers continue to steadily join the team, including medical specialists who agree to see patients in their offices as referrals.

The clinic has had six successful years of fundraising, partnership building and grant writing. Due to these resources, plans to expand and enhance existing services are moving forward. We continue to track patient health metrics for chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension as well as use patient surveys to demonstrate satisfaction and decreases in emergency room visits.

CommonGood Medical is meeting the needs of its patients, providing a primary care medical home for a community that would otherwise not have an option. Since opening, CommonGood Medical has provided more than 13,038 appointments and served over 2,300 unduplicated, uninsured patients who otherwise would have either gone without or to an emergency room (ER) for basic medical care. In the United States, an emergency room visit costs $2,600 on average, according to the most prominent insurance carrier in the U.S., UnitedHealthcare. The highest rate of ER use has come from CommonGood Medical's service zip code (75069). These unreimbursed costs are passed down to taxpayers through property taxes and increased health insurance rates. CommonGood Medical aims to reduce costly ER visits through increased access to quality primary healthcare, thereby promoting the prudent use of community health resources.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
