People who make too much money to qualify for Medicaid or CHIPS but not enough to pay for medicine and doctor visits, as well as people who work hard for a living to make ends-meet, that is until they have to go to the doctor are the very ones who have inspired us to begin Sharon Clinic. Established in October of 2008, and we continue to operate on the second Saturday of every month beginning at 9 A.M. A group of volunteers and medical staff turn Sunday School rooms into patient exam rooms and work rooms that provide free care for the people in our community.
This is completely non-profit organization. Although we do accept donations from outside sources, we do not ask or expect payment from our clients. The only services that clients are asked to pay for are lab tests and x-rays, which are optional and discounted at about 90%. These costs are exactly what the clinic is charged.
We request that our clients have no Medicare or Medicaid and met our income requirements. We treat persons of all ages and are listed with the United Way which can be accessed by dialing 2-1-1. We can also help clients with resource referrals to other local ministries or services available to the community.
It is our desire to help our community by providing health care for those who cannot afford it. In addition to this, we want to share the love of Christ to those around us.
