When you are looking for options when you or a family member needs medical care, where do you turn? Many in Siouxland community look to the Siouxland Community Health Center (SCHC) for their care.
Why is that? Because you know at SCHC that you will receive top-notch medical care and be seen by a dedicated and compassionate health professional in a warm and caring environment. Your generous support of the Siouxland Community Health Center has assisted us in providing health care to over 29,000 patients during the last year. The number of patients who have chosen the health center as their medical home continues to grow at both our Sioux City and South Sioux City locations.
The Siouxland Community Health Center is an extraordinary place. Here are just a few of our accomplishments this past year:
- Projected to have over 86,000 medical visits and 19,000 dental visits (both numbers continue to increase every year)
- Projected to fill more than 125,000 prescriptions in our in-house pharmacy;
- Began use of a mobile shower unit and began providing warm showers to homeless individuals in our community. Over 300 showers were given this past summer!
As we approach the end of the year, we come to you with a request for support. Our request is modest, and any gift means a great deal to us. The enclosed pledge card provides a list of several different funds and options. Every dollar we raise goes to support the patients in our care. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration. Your donation helps to make our community healthier, one person at a time. Right here. Right now.
Every day in the health center I continue to be amazed by the acts of caring demonstrated by our employees. I am proud to be a member of such a mission-focused team. Please accept my best wishes for a joyful holiday season.
