Yes it does!
In a recent Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA)compiled by the local hospitals in Hamilton County, it was discovered that twenty-five percent of those living below the poverty line could not access health care (even a free clinic like Heart and Soul) due to a lack of transportation. It was further discovered that ninety percent of those uninsured or underinsured in Hamilton County had never visited a free clinic. When asked why, the number one reason given was transportation. With this mobile unit, patients will no longer have to come to our physical location to receive care, we can go to them. We believe that heath care should not be denied to anyone due to a lack of transportation.
Heart and Soul has seen explosive growth in the last two years at our physical location. In 2017 alone, we have had over 700 patient visits. This is well over double the amount of visits we had in 2016. While this growth is incredible, there is still a great need, a need that will never be meet without the launch of a mobile medical unit. With the addition of this mobile unit, Heart and Soul will be able to travel across the county to partnering organizations and local events to provide much needed care to our uninsured and underinsured neighbors in Hamilton County and the surrounding areas.
With the purchase of this unit, Heart and Soul will be making history by being the first free clinic in Hamilton County to provide these services to our community. Will you make history with us? Will you partner financially with us to make this dream of a mobile unit become a reality?
We are so excited for the launch of this program and hope you are to!
