Dear members of our community:
Casa de Salud was created as a clinic for fair-priced, integrative, high quality healthcare, with a goal to provide same day medical services including evenings and Saturdays to help meet the needs of uninsured patients in Bernalillo County.
As we enter our eighth year of service to the people of Bernalillo County and New Mexico, we continue to look for ways to solve some of the toughest health problems in our community, from drug addiction and same day access for primary and urgent level medical care, to reducing crippling medical debt, which limits the ability of families to productively participate in the recovery of our economy. We are proud to still be here, true to our mission and growing stronger.
In 2010, Casa de Salud saw approximately 11,000 patient visits at an estimated $40 cost per patient! We are demonstrating that healthcare does not have to be expensive and that it can still be high quality and hassle-free. We will likely see 14,000 patient visits by the end of 2011 even without a building expansion.
With this success, we have outgrown our building and must expand this year or start turning away patients.
Thanks to the generous support of the McCune Charitable Foundation, we already have $175,000 committed towards this expansion effort. Our goal is to raise an additional $125,000 from our community of patients and supporters. With architecture plans in place and a growing team of dedicated providers, we are ready for the challenges of growth so that we can better serve our community.
We owe a debt of gratitude to our landlords and partners at the Rio Grande Community Development Corporation (RGCDC) for sharing our vision for the South Valley, and especially for helping to make that vision a reality.
