The Community Care Clinic remains open for business.  Between May 1st and May 19th, the clinic has provided 208 patient visits and we currently have appointments available.  We plan to have all offsite clinics back to regular schedule very soon.  We have hired a new Clinical Manager, Amanda Bliss, PA, who is currently working for us part-time and will be full-time by mid-July, once she works out her notice with her current employer.  The clinic's co-founder and Medical Director, Dr. John L. Whitlock continues to see patients at the clinic, along with other medical providers who volunteer their time.  While we have gone through several changes as of late, including some staff changes and the implementation of Elelctronic Health Records, each person involved with the clinic is dedicated to its continued service to the community.  We appreciate each and every person who has supported the clinic throughout the years and look forward to a long and prosperous future.

On Friday, April 28th, Marian Peters resigned from the Community Care Clinic. Marian was one of the founders of the clinic and has been a significant part of its vision since its inception in 2006. She has provided health care for many low-income, uninsured people and has changed many lives along the way. We wish her the very best in her future endeavors.

We will experience shortened clinic hours for the immediate time being. As we work through this transition, the Community Care Clinic will continue to be a strong resource for those in need.
