I went to this free clinic because I have asthma and could not afford to see a regular doctor, let alone get my inhalers. The people at SRCC are very friendly and very helpful. I had a thorough examination, received labs, and got my meds all for free. And they treated me with respect the entire time. I didn't feel like a "charity" case. If it had not have been for SRCC, I am positive that I would have become too sick to work again. SRCC gave me back my health and saved my job. They do much more than just provide health care. What a great bunch of people!
The Snake River Community Clinic (SRCC) will be starting its 10th year October 2009. It has filled the gap of health care for uninsured, medically needy with one paid staff member (their director) and an entirely VOLUNTEER health care provider staff, nursing staff, pharmacy staff, phlebotomy staff, and clerical staff. Over 400 medical, nursing, phlebotomy, pharmacy, and public health students from area colleges and universities have gained valuable experience at SRCC. It serves an area nearly 16,000 square miles in size, including all homeless, victims of domestic violence, and uninsured mental health patients. A free medical visit, $20 single tooth extraction, free labs & x-rays, dedicated volunteers, and enthusiastic community support make SRCC a free clinic for the uninsured of which we are very proud! It is a member of the Free Clinics of the Western Region, National Association of Free Clinics, the Nez Perce County Mental Health Court team, and works on the Advisory Board for the local Salvation Army. Collaboration and quality care are SRCC's secrets to providing years of care for thousands of uninsured. It receives no government funding!
