Proceeds will provide medicine, laboratory tests and other supports for the hundreds of uninsured or underinsured clients who visit the clinic to get their urgent care needs met.
Health and Hope Medical Outreach offers a free clinic which provides urgent care and basic health needs on a walk-in basis. “Urgent Care” includes injuries or illnesses that require medical attention, but are not serious enough to warrant an emergency room visit. For those who need additional services, we are able to make referrals to specialists and also have arrangements with labs and other medical providers to get needed services at affordable costs.
The free clinic has a team of nearly one hundred volunteers who cooperate to provide reliable service since February 2013. The organization is an IRS 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization (EIN# 27-4432389), and is a registered charitable organization with Washington state (registration number 32197).
Over the last three years, the clinic has provided nearly 3,000 doctor visits to middle to low income area residents.
