HELP US START A TELEHEALTH CLINIC

Help Us Start A Telehealth Clinic

I pray that this letter finds you and your family well during these unprecedented times. This moment we are living in is just that – one moment in time, which too shall pass. And we here at the Community Health Center of West Palm Beach make it our goal to “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” (Romans 12:12)

The Center is seeking the public’s help to guarantee that the uninsured/underinsured families of Palm Beach County have access to medical and vision care RIGHT NOW, while Palm Beach County goes through the phases of re-opening. Our staff is taking every precaution to protect our patients and volunteers; we are feeling the impact of this pandemic. More importantly, the community is feeling the impact: in April 2019, we saw over 400 patients; in April 2020, due to COVID-19, we were only able to see 150 patients! 

How do we get back to serving the community like before?
What’s the best way for our health services to resume ‘normal’ operations?
With your help!

We need your financial support to implement a new Telehealth Clinic, which will allow patients to video conference with their physicians; send/receive images and view test results online; and track treatment without having to ever show up in-person at the health center. Imagine being a mom with three kids and no childcare, afraid to bring the babies along to a much-needed doctor’s appointment; or picture an older gentleman with a chronic condition like diabetes, who needs the doctor’s advice to manage his ongoing health issues, but doesn’t feel comfortable going anywhere out of fear of exposing himself further to COVID-19. The Telehealth Clinic will directly address these challenges and more. It will increase access to healthcare and doctors for more patients; it will increase our access to more patients so that we can help more individuals; and it will enable us to deliver healthcare in the safest and most cost-effective manner possible.

Our goal is to raise a $190,000 to start the Telehealth Clinic!

This is a new program for CHC; we need the correct technology, software/hardware, and infrastructure so we can do it right. Under the guidance of VXIT, our IT partner, we are confident that once we secure the funds, we can have the telehealth clinic up and running in just a couple of weeks. We are well on our way to our goal: The Community Foundation, Lost Tree Foundation, and a few of our Private Donors have already helped us raise $80,000 of our total.

The end goal is in sight, with your help! Your financial support will go a long way towards helping us with these much-needed resources (see below) so that we can successfully launch a telehealth clinic:

  • Software & Subscriptions
  • Medical Supplies
  • IT Equipment
  • IT Services
  • Facility Expenses
  • Salary & Wages (for Telehealth positions)
     

We are asking you to please continue your loving support and dedication to CHC’s mission of sharing the love of God through healthcare. The COVID-19 pandemic is bringing us many challenges, but together we can continue to advocate for the underserved in our community who are often deemed “undesirable” by society.
