You know how awful it is to be sick or in need of medication. But most likely, you and I can call our primary care physician or walk into an urgent care clinic and you can pay your co-pay and continue on about your day. Pick up your medication at the pharmacy and order a cup of Starbucks or grocery shop while you wait.....
For the 2100+ patients at Chesapeake Care Clnic it isn't that easy. They are your working, low income neighbors that need your help. They are uninsured or underinsured. They don't have access to health care and can't afford a trip to the ER or urgent care.
Tammy - a Chesapeake Care patient — shares her fears, "If the clinic closes, I don't know what I would do. I would probably be a statistic." Tammy's health took a turn for the worst, and she found herself in the emergency room. Tammy was in need of urgent medical care, but lacked both the health insurance and the means necessary to receive treatment.
She was referred to Chesapeake Care Clinic. The clinic is a critical part of the Chesapeake community.
