Many people in our community face challenges. It is important to know that they have a place to turn to receive the respectful, comprehensive primary health care provided at St. Ben's Clinic.
The mission of St. Ben’s Clinic is to provide respectful, patient-centered, coordinated, comprehensive primary healthcare services to adults who will benefit from the skills and experience of a nurse-practitioner based model of care. This care specializes in developing a relationship with patients through respect and understanding to overcome traditional barriers to medical care.
Those barriers may include: difficulty in using office-based clinical practice, lack of trust in the large system of care, problems associated with poverty, challenges of substance abuse or long term mental illness or homelessness. The clinic benefits from physician involvement and oversight as well as the assessment, counseling and referral skills of a professional social worker to address all issues related to health.
Your gift to St. Ben's Clinic will help provide the person-centered care given by a nurse practitioner, social worker and other caregivers at the clinic.
