Removing the barriers of cost and language, Mercy Health provides a safety net for residents of Montgomery County who are poor or uninsured. It is also the medical home for 200 adolescents and a secondary provider for youth receiving care in school-based wellness centers at two nearby high schools. Exams, lab tests, x-rays, medications, chronic disease management, mental health care – all are available along with nearly a dozen specialties. Health education programs focus on preventative care and a partnership with Adventist Healthcare works to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and ER visits. The clinic accomplishes its work with the support of numerous partners (hospitals, labs) and volunteers (physicians, nurses, interpreters) who provide their time and expertise. In a community where access to decent healthcare is a serious problem for too many, Mercy’s high-quality care and services put people back in control of their health.
