Sometimes the best medicine is a helping hand.
2020 has provided great challenges for all of us. At HealthPoint we continue to rise to those challenges and have transformed the way we care for our patients and our community in response to this crisis.
As we look ahead to 2021, we know our community’s need for accessible and comprehensive health care services will increase. We will need to continue to support our patients and our care teams in accessing and using telehealth for care. We are also witnessing an increase in behavioral health needs due to the stress of this unprecedented time.
Our work in the community is also a priority in 2021. We serve 900 students in our school-based clinics, and although students are not physically at school, these students still need us for everything from counseling to primary care. We also serve over 1,000 patients in our homelessness outreach program, and sadly, we expect that number to increase as more people experience financial insecurity during this time.
