Spectrum Health Care (SHC) began as an organization providing compassionate care to those living with HIV/AIDS in 1992. As medical advancements were made, we began providing case management and housing services to those living with HIV/AIDS in the 37-county North Central Region. Our mission has broadened even further, as we opened a primary care clinic last fall that is making health care accessible for uninsured, low-income and marginalized residents in our service area. With only 3 months of full operation in 2017, and pending insurance carrier participation, we had over 275 appointments and most patients paid a nominal fee on our sliding scale or their projected co-pay. Our clinic operates on a sliding scale fee-based system for those who are lower income or uninsured. No one will be turned away for lack of ability to pay. Last year, SHC served 3,446 clients through our prevention, case management, housing and clinical programs–-with that number anticipated to grow significantly in 2018.
As with all fundraising events, proceeds from our annual poker tournament are critical in helping to underwrite these direct program costs not covered by current contracts and grants. Through the generosity of sponsors and the attendees, SHC can continue to provide critical services that help improve the quality of health and life for individuals and families in North Central Missouri.
