CHN Member Spotlight:

Vineyard Free Health Clinics
Vineyard Free Health Clinics, located in Westerville, provides free medical care to uninsured and underinsured patients in Franklin, Delaware, and Licking counties.

Licensed volunteers, including physicians, nurses, and pharmacists provided over 902 hours of care last year. All of Vineyard’s services are free, including most prescription medications, glasses, and health screenings. The clinic offers a variety of services including:
physical exams, episodic care, dental extractions, restorative dental care, chiropractic care, and prescription assistance.

In 2019, Vineyard began tracking where patients would have gone if they had been seen at their clinic. Over 28% of patients would have gone to an emergency room, 45% had no idea where they would go, and 12% could not have sought treatment. This data proves what many free clinics know from conversations with patients: most would be forced to choose between an emergency room or to forgo receiving medical care if a free clinic was not an option.

Another big thank you goes out to our very own board member Isi Green, Executive Director of Physicans CareConnection, for securing a large donation of N95 masks from Direct Relief for our membership. We are so very grateful for the wonderful support during these unprecedented times.
