HOPE Clinic is a private, non-profit organization in Pamlico County, NC that provides free medical and dental care to low-income, uninsured adults. We provide basic health care, prescription medications, laboratory tests, medical supplies, health education, and referrals to specialists at no charge.
- Our over 900
patients meet strict income eligibility requirements, lack
health insurance, and are not eligible for Medicaid
Medicare, Veterans Benefits, or Workman's Compensation.
Two of our patients have recorded a video
to let you hear in their own words what HOPE Clinic has meant to them.
- Over 75% suffer from
chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.
- They reflect the ethnic
diversity of our county: 46% white, 40% black, 14% Hispanic.
- In 2005, HOPE won a
state-wide evaluation award from the Blue Cross Blue Shield
of NC Foundation.
- Our ongoing assessment activities demonstrate
improved patient health and financial savings for our community; New patients report greater non-emergency use of expensive hospital emergency services than do established patients.
