Patients served by Neighborcare Health at Pike Place Market are primarily older adults dealing with multiple barriers to accessing the health care they need. Many clinic patients are also struggling with housing stability, mental and behavioral health issues, substance abuse and have had a lifetime of trying to manage illnesses without regular access to medical care.
Last year, Neighborcare Health at Pike Place Market served 4,025 patients through 23,895 appointments. This includes both visits in the clinic, as well as through outreach visits from the Housing Health Outreach Team and Reach program – where medical staff visit and serve patients in low-income housing.
Neighborcare Health at the Market is on the frontlines testing in shelters and low-income housing buildings throughout downtown. Neighborcare Health’s Homeless Programs Team is working closely with housing, community, and public health partners to address the many emerging COVID-19 related needs for people experiencing homelessness in permanent supportive housing, on the street, and in shelter settings.
