services & programs

More than half of our patients are in fact employed - but often their job, or jobs, are part-time, and if their employer does offer health insurance, they can’t afford the premiums and co-pays. The remaining patients have lacked consistent access to healthcare causing standard screening and/or preventable treatments to go unaddressed – in many instances resulting in more serious medical issues.

 

The Clinic provides a wide range of services to its patients - all under the commitment to the communities and individuals of Gloucester and Mathews Counties having access to basic healthcare and education services.

acute medical care

Utilizing Clinic services much like a family doctor, being seen for acute/episodic conditions (ex: cold, rash, earache). Patients being seen in the acute care program may see a different volunteer doctor at each visit.

chronic medical care

Individuals diagnosed with a chronic condition, defined as a medical problem that cannot be cured although treatments may bring the condition under control, are seen through through our chronic care model. This model allows patients to be seen by a consistent team of health care providers, creating a provider-patient relationship and better chance at involvement/partnership in health management.​

patient education

Whether it be our Pharmacist helping the patient to understand the medications prescribed, our Nurse Practitioner helping the patient to see how certain life styles impact their illness, or our dietitian assisting diabetic patients in the purchase and preparation of food that is good for them - patient education is a foundational part of the treatment plan for all GMCC patients.
