Raise money for St. Dominic Community Health Clinic
St. Dominic Community Health Clinic
In the mid-1990s, St. Dominic’s recognized the need to provide healthcare services for the homeless and working poor of Jackson’s inner city. Through close ties with Stewpot Community Services and the Central Urban Ministry Center, the St. Dominic Community Health Clinic was established to serve those who cannot afford basic medical care.
In addition to providing primary health services, the clinic’s purpose is also to lead members of the community to make healthier lifestyle choices and to promote efforts to restore a spirit of volunteerism to the area. It is staffed by a consultative family practice physician, a full-time family nurse practitioner, a medical assistant, counselor, security and volunteer nurses and physicians.
Patients of St. Dominic’s Community Health Clinic are welcomed with no appointment necessary. Primary health care services include routine checkups, treatment of acute illnesses, sports or employment physicals, eye exams by an opthalmologist, limited chronic care, nutrition counseling, waived lab testing, scheduling of lab, x-ray or other diagnostic services or referrals for specialty care and social services, plus assistance with prescriptions, supplies and equipment.
In addition to primary health care services, the clinic provides a variety of educational programs for children, adolescents and adults in an effort to promote disease prevention and safety among this segment of the population.
