Our community inspires and amazes us with its generosity. Perhaps most gratifying is that support comes from so many: individuals and families, businesses, local volunteer organizations, and Saratoga Hospital’s employees, medical staff members, and volunteers. We are deeply grateful.
HELP US OPEN A SARATOGA COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTER
What would you do if you couldn’t afford basic healthcare?
For thousands in our region, that’s not a hypothetical question; it’s a fact of life. This is why our 2012-2013 Annual Giving Campaign is dedicated to raising funds to build a Community Health Center. This new center will help make sure that everyone has access to quality, affordable healthcare. It will provide an array of services, all under one roof:
- Primary Care
- Women’s Health Services
- Care Management
- Family Dental Care
- Specialty Services
- Outreach and Education
The uninsured miss out on something most of us take for granted: the benefits of coordinated, preventative care. Uninsured patients have no place to turn when symptoms first appear. So they wait, hoping they will feel better and avoid the cost of treatment. Instead, they get worse and eventually end up in a hospital emergency department, one of the busiest, most expensive places to receive care.
If those same patients had a Community Health Center, they would have a relationship with a primary care physician. When symptoms first appeared, they would come in and be seen by a healthcare professional they know and trust. Along with treatment, they would receive information on how to prevent similar illnesses. They also would be scheduled for routine screenings that catch life-threatening illnesses in their earliest stages, when they are most treatable.
Your gift will offer hope and the prospect of better health for literally thousands of uninsured or underinsured individuals in Saratoga County. We can’t solve all the economic problems of individuals but we can come together as a community and make sure they have access to quality, affordable healthcare.
