PURPOSE

The Community Medical Care Center is a non profit clinic offering primary medical and dental care to the qualified uninsured and medically indigent of the surrounding area. The clinic offers primary care, specialty care, chronic disease management and dental care to a segment of the community who might otherwise do without necessary medical care.

PROGRAM DETAILS

The Community Medical Care Center is a separate 501(c)3 non-profit organization that operates as a "sister" ministry to the Christian Care Center under the leadership of the same Executive Director.

Care is provided by volunteer doctors, nurses and dentists in addition to a small compensated staff. The clinic and medical professionals operate under a legal statute which transfers liability of not-for-profit clinics and providers of the state.

In order to qualify for services, patients must meet the following criteria:

 

  • Income at or below 150% of poverty level

  • No medical insurance of any kind

  • No Medicaid or Medicare coverage

  • No person over the age of 65

 

Qualifying patients receive all primary care free of charge. The clinic also provides referrals for free diagnostic tests, chronic disease education and care and referrals for surgical procedures. A staff nurse works with pharmaceutical companies to obtain free prescription medication and a representative from the hospital's patient services department works to provide needed procedures unavailable in the clinic through the hospital's charity care program.

Facilities

The Community Medical Care Center facility was built in 2000. In traditional physician's office style, it has a reception and records area, three examination rooms, a nurse station, and a small lab. The dental wing has two examination rooms and a dark room for processing x-rays. There is also an examination room that is used for ophthalmology exams and a wound care room.

The Community Medical Care Center see patients by appointment only Monday - Thursday 8:00am to 5pm and Friday 8:00am to noon. We are closed 12:00pm to 1pm for lunch. We also make appointments in the evenings for our clients to see Specialty Physicians as their schedule allows.

History

In August 1996, First Baptist Leesburg, in partnership with Leesburg Regional Medical Center (LRMC), established a hospital-funded nurse medical ministry and began serving those in the Christian Care Center's residential facilities and outside community referrals. three years later, a generous grant provided funding to construct the current facility. In 2014, the CMCC saw over 7,800 patient visits with a value of services provided over $1.7 million.

Partnering Options

  • Volunteer as a medical professional: Doctor, Nurse, Dentist, Hygienist or Dental Assistant

  • Interview clients

  • Greet clients at the reception desk

  • Light office duties

  • Partner financially to provide medical or dental services. Every dollar given provides ten dollars of services

Staff

The Community Medical Care Center staff consists of three positions:

  • Director: oversees all operations of the Community Medical Care Center, its programs, facilities and staff

  • Assistant Director: supports the Director and coordinates volunteers and staff

  • Medical Professionals: small compensated staff of medical professionals who are employed by either the CMCC board or the Leesburg Regional Medical Center
     

The staff is supported by a dedicated team of volunteers who serve in many capacities, from interviewing potential patients to scheduling office visits.

All of the physicians and dentists are volunteers, as are most of the nurses, nurse practitioners and other medical staff.
