The JCHC is truly a gift of the people of Tampa Bay to the people of Tampa Bay, Serving the medically indigent, the working poor---those who cannot afford health insurance, it offers hope, and healing. Volunteer doctors, nurses pharmacists and other medical professionals give their time and knowledge, and services are donated by organizations throughout the community. Last year over 35,000 patient visits were served. It truly is a haven for those lost in the health care system
The Judeo Christian Health Clinic provides tremendous services to the Tampa Bay community. I am proud to be a volunteer in this organization.
The Judeo Christian Health Clinic is a remarkable organization whose mission is to help those who have nowhere else to go for their medical needs. In all my time volunteering there, I have been constantly amazed by the passion of every volunteer and staff member to do their best to provide for the total well being of the patients, as well as their genuine caring and concern for others. I can truly say that being able to volunteer there has been a blessing as it has shown me that there are still many wonderful people in the world.
Judeo Christian Health Clinic is an amazing establishment, not only is the purpose of the clinic flawless but the people are always supportive and welcoming. I have worked with the clinic for about ten months and have witnessed countless lives touched my the hands of the clinic. We are able to help to many people that would otherwise have no access to medical attention, which is something truly special in itself.
The Judeo Christioan Clinic was the first real medical experience that I had as a premed student. I was first involved as an interpreter/help with whatever was needed, and I did that for a little over 4 years. Then I became a medical student and I have been helping see patients there this last year. This clinic and its goals have been one of the main drivers in my desire to become a primary care physician. I have had the privileged to work with under represented and under served minorities and I have been able to see, first hand, the difference that we are making in these patients lives. Everything from lifestyle changes, BP/glucose maintenance to cancer treatment and surgeries, have been offered to our patients thanks to the gracefulness of our volunteers and of our great donors. I have been able to learn a lot about what medicine is like, the many health disparities present in our community, the huge impact that primary care/lack of has on patients, and I have been able to see the results and improvements that come about when physicians, nurses, social workers, and people in our community volunteer for the benefit of others.
This marvelous group provides medical treatment to the working poor- the ones who work for low wages but barely make ends meet. The staff and medical volunteers are hard working, diligent, caring, and life savers in many cases. The world is a better place because of this vital organization.
The JCC assists more people in the Tampa Bay area than one can imagine. The very best health care professionals give their time & talent to those of all and in need. The patients not only receive quality care, but they are taken care of with compassion. It heals not only the physically ill, but touches the spirit of those receiving as well as those giving. The clinic is not only the largest and most comprehensive free clinic in the Southeastern United States, but a true blessing in our community. We are all very proud to be associated with this facility that should be a role model for other clinics. country.
This is a great organization which is well-run and really cares about the patients. Everyone seems happy to be there, is professional and treats the patients with respect. As a volunteer, I just try to make the experience as positive as possible for the patients that I see.
The JCHC is a safety net, a haven of hope and healing, for those who have been lost in the health care sustem today. Even with reform, there will be those unable to have insurance, and as such, unable to find care when they or their loved ones are sick and suffering. The clinic offers compassion, care and support for each person who walks through it's doors. Receiving no government dollars, it is supported completely by the people of Tampa Bay, who donate their time, and their dollars, to help. It is an honor and a priviledge to work with people who have such compassion and concern for others in need. Each person is treated with dignity and repect, and all that is possible is done to help them,
Im an Ob/Gyn physician who volunteers at the clinic and am also on the board. I see many women who need pap smears, mammograms and surgeries but do not have the means to get the care they need. The Judeo Christian Clinic provides medical access to people in need. I have seen some women who may have developed cervical cancer because they could not afford the simple surgery needed to prevent it. Through the clinic I was able to provide this surgery and save lives. The clinic has provided excellent medical care for thousands of patients in need. It has truly saved lives.
