Helping community clinics serve another day
Free healthcare for needy residents in Wyoming Valley
Surviving in the space between limited healthcare access and no health insurance often leads to frightening choices.
High unemployment and low incomes force many families and seniors in our region to choose between food and medical care.
In Wilkes-Barre, PA, free clinics like the McAuley Clinic and Volunteers in Medicine help fill the gap. From fixing scrapes to diagnosing serious health conditions, healthcare with little to no cost makes a real difference in the lives of people who can't afford a doctor.
But with massive federal and state budget cuts to public health resources each year, free clinics need continuous operational support to fulfill their mission.
Geisinger is there
Donating support to community caregivers
Geisinger is in the fight for healthier communities and easing the burden of care for the uninsured and underinsured in our area. That's why we donate vital medical services such as lab work, x-rays, cat scans, ultrasounds and MRIs to McAuley Clinic and Volunteers in Medicine each year.
This partnership allows public and private health care services to function better, maximizes resources and creates a culture of caring that never depends on a patient's income.
