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 2007, CCSC has provided primary healthcare, dental care, medication assistance and laboratory testing to over 10,000 patients. Compassionate Care strives 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 servers addults, 18 to 64 that are uninsured and living at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. Compassionate Care of Shelby County is supported 100% through local individuals, corporations and grants. 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 2014 but for years to come and millions more will move from uninsured to underinsured status. The latest projections from Congressional Budget Office estimate that 31 million people will be uninsured in 10 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 and in fact, more demand from uninsured and underinsured patients than can be met. CCSC is funded by only donations and grants. We need you!! The truth is we are looking at a different group of people in need of our services more and more.
