VHCPP ANNUAL REPORT 2015-2016
MyClinic is an independent, not for profit FREE CLINIC. All licensed volunteer health providers are granted sovereign immunity protection in accordance with the State Volunteer Health Care Provider Program for donating their time to serve low income, uninsured patients. During the time period July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016, MyClinic reported over $550,000 in donated time and services to the residents of our community. This includes the 2354 hours of free care provided to our patients by licensed professionals as well as services such as labs, xrays, mammograms and other supplies. We thank Jupiter Medical Center for being our best community partner.
Our success is the result of all our volunteers and supporters who believe in what we do to help those in need. The greatest pleasure is attained when we can provide complete care to our patients, by providing their primary care, seeking out affordable medication and sourcing necessary procedures. We have added new services such as dermatology, physical therapy, pediatric care, podiatry and will soon be adding again behavioral health.
Our First Child
Dr. Fisch welcomed our first child in June. It is a misconception that all children have health care. We have opened our doors to see children who do not have health insurance. Dr. Fisch is a retired pediatrician.
Four Generation Patients
Dr. Cabrera was happy to take care of a family of four patients from young child to great-grandmother. This is a first for MyClinic. We are pleased to be able to serve this family with their medical needs and be their primary medical home.
