We provide uninsured patients of Etowah County with access to physician’s, nurses, support staff, prescription medication and a variety of holistic care services, at no cost. The clinic has had a dramatic impact, not just in the lives of those we serve, but also in the community in which they live, work and play.
Local physicians volunteer their time to treat patients at the clinic, and make necessary referrals to participating specialists who treat patients in their offices. We treat people for diabetes, hypertension, thyroid disorders, high cholesterol and other chronic conditions which, when left untreated, can lead to life-threatening complications and lengthy stays in the hospital.
Acute conditions are also treated, often requiring nothing more than a simple antibiotic. The EFCC is able to provide treatment to patients who would otherwise arrive at the emergency room with no means of payment or go without treatment.
We are proud to serve Etowah County and improve the lives of people who would not have access to medical care.
