Urgent care clinics

In our clinics, volunteer doctors and nurses provide care for urgent medical concerns. We see patients on a walk-in, first-come first-served basis. No appointments are necessary.

Urgent care needs include:

  • coughs and colds
  • strains and sprains
  • injuries that are not severe
  • other complaints that are not life-threatening.

Our clinic staff

All clinics have a staff nurse and a patient advocate. Patients are cared for by volunteer medical providers (doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, and medical assistants), interpreters, and support staff who generously give of their time.

Clinic visit cost

We ask patients to pay $40 for a clinic visit. Payment is expected when service is provided.

Lab tests, procedures, and medication cost extra. We offer reduced prices wherever we can. 

If you can’t pay $40, we have a sliding fee scale. To qualify, you need to bring proof of income. Proof of income includes any of the following that apply to you:

  • Pay stubs for the last three weeks.
  • If self-employed, bring a copy of last year’s tax return.
  • Proof of unemployment benefits.
  • Social Security eligibility letter or a copy of Social Security check.
  • If you have no income for the last three months, we will accept a written statement, signed and dated, explaining your financial hardship.
  • If you are paid in cash; you may bring a letter from your employer stating your income, or sign a statement verifying your income.

Financial contributions from individuals, churches, businesses, foundations and service clubs help pay the rest of the costs.

Diabetes screenings and education

We do a simple test for diabetes on every patient who has certain symptoms or characteristics. If someone is diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, he or she is referred to our Chronic Care Team. This team has a medical doctor, medical assistants, a diabetic educator and a patient advocate who work with the patient to design a care plan especially for the person. Learn more about the Chronic Care Team and our Diabetes Alliance Program.

Services we don’t provide at the clinics

  • Prenatal care
  • Fertility counseling or family planning
  • Prescriptions for narcotics
  • Vaccinations or flu shots
  • DOT commercial driver's license medical exam
  • Disability physicals and disability applications
  • Long-term management of chronic care illnesses
  • Immigration physicals

Referrals to doctors

Our goal is to place our patients with doctors who are accepting new patients whenever we can.

Unfortunately, there continues to be a shortage of physicians in our community. Even doctors who are accepting new patients have caps on how many uninsured patients they can accept. It is critical for the Center for Healing & Hope to continue addressing this gap by providing medical care through our team of volunteers.

Help enrolling in insurance and accessing other services

We are committed to helping individuals and families enroll in health insurance they can afford or that they qualify for. We have insurance navigators at some of our clinics or can schedule an appointment with a navigator. These trained specialists will help patients sign up through the health insurance exchanges, Medicaid, and Indiana’s HIP 2.0 program.

Our patient advocate also makes referrals to other nonprofit organizations when they encounter patients who need help with food, housing, or social services.
