Beginning November 1st, the clinic will reduce its hours by eliminating services on Thursdays. The Medical Ministry will now be open Monday and Tuesday from 8:30am to 8:30pm and Wednesday from to 8:30am to 2:30pm. Only one clinic session per week (Thursday evening) will end, so that we will have five sessions on Monday and Tuesday mornings and evenings; and also on Wednesday morning. We believe we can increase the number of patients seen during those sessions to maintain our capacity. These reduced hours will allow our staff to retain their benefits.
The dental clinic services will also be cut in half to only offer extractions on Monday night, eliminating services on Thursday. If the need continues to overwhelm us, and if there is enough support from our churches, volunteers, individuals, and others in the community, we could consider adding dental services on Tuesday.
