City Mission and Ellis Partner to Provide Free Care
Thursday, July 30, 2020
Thanks to a collaborative partnership, Ellis is proud to support the City Mission's goal of transforming lives and giving hope by providing access to free quality primary care. Every Tuesday evening, those in need of preventive or acute care can visit the City Mission, located at 313 Clinton Street. They have the option to schedule an appointment through the City Mission or walking in.
"This initiative has so many benefits for all involved," says Ellis Medicine Senior Business Director Julie Adamec, "we are removing barriers to care, establishing relationships with our community partners, building trust with our patients, and creating continuity of care, as the doctors visiting City Mission are the same doctors at our walk-in Primary Care location at the McClellan campus. Patients will develop a genuine relationship with Ellis Medicine, and know they can receive the right kind of quality health service from the right provider."
The City Mission has set up three welcoming exam rooms that provide privacy and are designed to build a trusting relationship in a dignified setting. The easy access and dependable schedule should reduce the need for travel and expensive Emergency Department visits.
Our sincere thanks to Dr. Ferro, Kerry Yakawiak, the Family Medicine residents, and City Mission for taking care of our community.
