Who are we?We are a faith-based healthcare center, respectfully providing quality care and hope to the uninsured and underserved of Shelby County, Ohio. Since opening in 2007, Compassionate Care of Shelby County (CCSC), has provided primary healthcare, dental care, medication assistance and laboratory testing to over 10,000 patients. We strive to provide a caring patient-to-provider relationship recognizing that all patients should be treated with dignity, respect and compassion. Utilizing primarily volunteer physicians, nurse practitioners and certified medical assistants, CCSC serves adults, 18 to 64 that are uninsured and living at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. The clinic does not rely on government funding and does not serve those receiving Medicare or Medicaid. Our free-standing, community supported, volunteer clinic also allows medical professionals the opportunity to practice in a positive therapeutic setting.
The Ever-Changing Face of Healthcare
Millions of people who are currently uninsured will remain so not only in 2016, but for years to come and more individuals will move from uninsured to under-insured status. The latest projections from Congressional Budget Office estimate that 31 million people will be uninsured nine years from now when the Affordable Care Act is in full effect. Given that the existing network of free clinics serves two million people, there will clearly be a continued role for Compassionate Care and other similar organizations. In fact, we have recently seen an increase in demand from uninsured and under-insured patients. CCSC is funded by only grants, fundraisers, corporate and individual donations. We are not a federally funded organization. We need you!! The truth is, we are seeing a different demographic of people in need of our services more and more and CCSC will be there to help.
