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 clinic manager Zandra Lee. “When come to our clinic, they feel respected, valued, and that this is their home in many ways.”
This year, the clinic served over 4,800 patients, more than half whom are homeless. Patients have access to a full range of resources from primary care to chronic illness management, drug and alcohol counseling, prescription medications, nutrition counseling, and in-home healthcare. Additionally, the Clinic’s Housing Health Outreach Team (HHOT) expanded outreach and helped more than 700 chronically homeless adults remain housed in downtown Seattle and surrounding areas.
With your support, last year The Market Foundation granted $305,000 to the Market’s Clinic, which helps cover costs like prescription drugs and healthcare visits visits for under-insured patients. Read more about the Market’s medical clinic here.
