Listen to First Talk interview with GHCCM Medical Clinic Director Molly Sain
The GHCCM medical clinic in Hickory, North Carolina implemented telehealth video conferences during the COVID-19 pandemic to allow us to see patients who are sick and follow up on their condition and to provide education and instruction as to what they need to do if they experience symptoms of COVID-19. These visits can help minimize exposure for well patients and lessen their risks for contracting the virus. Instructions will be provided as to when to call the doctor and when to go to the ER. This will also be when we follow up on their medication refills, if needed.
The clinic is currently offering telehealth and in-person medical visits.
Greater Hickory Cooperative Christian Ministry (GHCCM) medical clinic provides healthcare, vision and dental services, and Hepatitis C treatment for uninsured adults. These services are supported by area healthcare providers, businesses, and volunteers along with public and private sponsors.
The medical clinic is here to help underprivileged adults in our community receive the healthcare they need at no charge.
To be eligible for clinical services, individuals must be adults 18 and over, a resident of Catawba or Alexander County, and fall within 200% of federal poverty guidelines. Individuals must also be uninsured and ineligible for Medicaid, Medicare, or private insurance. Some limited services will be available to residents in the surrounding counties on a case-by-case basis.
