Community Impact

First Year Impact

In 2013, our priority was to establish the base of volunteers necessary for the clinic to be a reliable source of care for the community. Nearly 100 volunteers and more than twenty area churches now together to provide free, quality urgent medical care and referral services. This service means that many who are in need can have peace as their health concerns are addressed, but also that men and women of faith can offer care and kindness to their neighbors and so reflect the goodness and love of God. Our care providers have seen patients with conditions ranging from minor injuries to undiagnosed cancer. Common issues include hypertension, depressive disorders, bronchitis, diabetes and asthma. We are able to make referrals to specialists who are willing to help HHMO meet client needs, and we have arrangements with laboratories and other kinds of providers to get a charitable rate for needed services.

Service in year one

779 clinic visits with 455 patients served

63% of patients are female

Age

  • 23% under 30
  • 42% 30 to 50
  • 38% over 50

Region

  • 44% Centralia
  • 21% Chehalis
  • 10% Rochester

Employment

  • 44% unemployed
  • 20% part time
  • 17% full time

These services are offered by volunteers who have given more than 4,800 hours meeting the needs of their neighbors. We estimate the value of 779 health service visits at more than $150,000. Each person who receives care from HHMO rather than a hospital emergency room saves the medical system at least $1,200.


Next Steps

We seek to target those who need services and expand the base of our volunteers so that we can provide more than 1,000 medical visits in the upcoming year. Our future vision is to reach the remote areas of the region and to help Churches meet the needs of those they serve.

Services

Scope of Services

We provide safe, quality care and acute medical services to those served in the clinic. Respect for patient individual needs, rights and confidentiality will be maintained. The quality of our care is above reproach. Respect for patient individual needs, rights and confidentiality is maintained according to the highest professional standards. 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. Patients are seen on a walk in basis, and we do not schedule appointments. Because our mission specifies who we strongly desire to serve, we ask questions to establish eligibility. We do not require any form of payment or place other conditions. We do not provide or prescribe opiates.

Volunteer Opportunities

With Matthew 25:36, “...I was sick and you cared for me...” as our inspiration and guiding principal, nearly 100 volunteers and more than 20 area churches work together to match people of faith with those who need help. If you would like to help your neighbors, please consider becoming a part of Health and Hope Medical Outreach. While many of our volunteers are medical professionals, it might surprise you to know that most are not. An endeavor like a free medical clinic requires a wide range of skills and many hours of work to supplement care providers.

Other Volunteer Postions

  • Translator: Certificate not required. Responsible for assisting other volunteer staff in translating Spanish/English. Will often move with the patient through the complete process at HHMO.
  • We are in need of nurses. Please send your application to:
