Community Check-Up Center
|www.communitycheckupcenter.com||Providing Compassionate and Caring Medical Service to the Families of South Harrisburg|
The Community Check-Up Center was founded in 1994 by a group of Head Start mothers who were distressed that quality health care was inaccessible to those without transportation.
Community Check-Up Center provides quality healthcare to uninsured and
underinsured individuals within the South Harrisburg area. No one will be
turned away due to inability to pay. The center is within walking
distance to over 2,500 public housing residents and more than 3,500
Medicaid-eligible children who live within this area. The Center's goal
is to provide healthcare and information to the residents about the programs available to assist them to
improve their lives and to ensure that every child has adequate health insurance.
The Women's Center enhances our effectiveness, by providing high quality service for our GYN patients. It provides STD / HIV testing for men and women and one on one counseling prevention services.
Our center helps the community by providing materials with correct information about health and life issues.
Ninety percent of our patient population are Medicaid recipients, but reimbursement from the government does not fully fund our programs. New HMO capitations have limited reimbursement for patient services.
Generous support from the Harrisburg Housing Authority, which provides rent-free space and utilities, as well as contributions from churches, service organizations, businesses, charitable foundations and individuals are critical to the survival of the organization. Contributions are fully tax deductible.
Why is it needed?
Low-income families face special challenges:
The Community Check-Up Center provides dignified professional care to the population it serves. We believe that our patients deserve the best care possible. When families receive preventive care and treatment for illness, this minimizes the risk for more costly emergency room and medical services. High quality care and lower costs benefit everyone.
The Community Check-Up Center is a community based, non-profit organization working in partnership with the community to improve the health and wellness of low income children and families through high quality compassionate care.
Healthy Children ensure a Healthy Future.
