Your gift helps our team provide health care to everyone regardless of income or insurance status in the communities we serve throughout Northern New York. What is the impact of those services, and what will your donation help support?
Community health centers provide high quality, cost-effective, patient-centered care to vulnerable populations. Health centers serve 1 in 7 Medicaid beneficiaries, almost 1 in 3 individuals in poverty, and 1 in 5 low-income, uninsured persons. Nationally, two-thirds of health center patients are members of racial or ethnic minorities, which places health centers at the center of the national effort to reduce racial disparities in health care. Recent studies show that, on average, each patient receiving care at a health center saved the health care system 24%, annually. With 11,442 patients served by our team in 2015, the estimated annual savings is $14.5 million.
As health centers expand, our expenditures and corresponding economic impact also grow. In 2015 alone, Community Health Center of the North Country contributed about $11.2 million dollars.
