Neighborcare Health at Pike Place Market provides a range of primary health care services for some of our most vulnerable neighbors.
“Many of our patients are homeless and feel invisible,” says Neighborcare Health clinic manager Zandra Lee. “When they come to our clinic, they feel respected, valued, and that this is their home.”
This year, the clinic served over 4,800 patients. More than half of whom are homeless. Patients have access to a full range of resources from primary care to chronic illness management. They can also receive drug and alcohol counseling, prescription medications, nutrition counseling, and in-home healthcare. Additionally, Neighborcare Health clinic’s Housing Health Outreach Team (HHOT) program has expanded outreach. This has helped more than 700 chronically homeless adults remain housed in downtown Seattle and surrounding areas.
With your support, last year The Market Foundation granted $315,000 to the Market’s Clinic. These funds helped aid for 29,793 healthcare visits and cover costs like prescription drugs and healthcare visits visits for under-insured patients. Read more about the Market’s medical clinic here.
