Meet Maria. She’s a single mother and works two jobs. Putting food on the table, keeping a roof over their heads, creating a better life for her child and surviving the stress and uncertainty of the COVID-19 Pandemic have been all consuming for Maria. Unfortunately, her health wasn’t a priority until she came to Health Partnership Clinic (HPC).
After undergoing tests, Maria soon discovered she had high blood pressure—which left undiagnosed, this “silent killer” could lead to heart disease, heart failure or stroke. Maria is not alone. Nearly 76 percent of HPC’s patients have one or more chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and depression and have missed important screenings and routine care during the pandemic. Thanks to the clinic’s dedicated team, Maria is putting her health first and feeling better.
Compounding the problem, many high-risk patients, like Maria, are uninsured or underinsured. Now, more than ever, help is needed! Access to quality health care improves well-being and saves lives. HPC is reaching out to the community to ask for financial support to provide comprehensive and continuous care to our patients, like Maria. A gift today to HPC can ensure those suffering with chronic diseases and those needing preventative services, can receive the care they need.

HPC’s annual fund goal is $75,000 to provide chronic care management visits for uninsured patients.
