My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Rapha Ministries, Winchester, KY, USA
For the past twenty three years I have lived and worked in the Winchester Community. I have known Dr. Scott Baker and his wife, Stacy, since they arrived in our community to establish a family practice for medicine. However, due to Scott's illness he had to cease his practice of medicine and this greatly distressed all of us who were his patients and friends. Although Scott could no longer practice medicine, Scott and Stacy felt a sincere desire to help the citizens of Clark County who could not afford medical treatment. This led to the establishment of the Rapha Clinic. These two young individuals, though facing hardships of their own, were determined to establish a Christian based medical clinic where people could come to obtain medical treatment and Christian counseling. After many years of planning and hard work, the Rapha Clinic opened their doors.
I have been a part of the volunteer staff of the clinic since the first patient was seem. I transcribe the medical notes for the records of the Rapha Clinic. The clinic is run by one paid individual and the remainder of the operation is dependent on volunteers. I have typed the notes of the patients of the Rapha Clinic, and witnessed first hand the loving care given by the doctors and nurses, and the follow-up of medical problems by various other organizations in the community in relation to the Rapha Clinic. I have recorded the patient care, how the doctor's treat the patients and the concerns of the staff. These patients are not just names on a piece of paper, they are people with problems served by volunteers who truly want to help. I have heard their testimonies and seen the results of good patient care.
I am proud to be a part of the Rapha Clinic Staff.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching the community benefit from medical care to patients who otherwise would have received no medical treatment.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Not do a thing! These people are absolutely amazing in their dedication to the care of the people of Winchester, Kentucky.
