Healing Hands Community Clinic for the uninsured in Union County

March 18, 2011 - Healing Hands Community Clinic recently hosted an open house and Blairsville Union Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting on site at 64 Bracketts Way in Village Towne Center behind KFC. Staff, family members, chamber ambassadors, business owners, and friends dropped by to offer congratulations and support. Guests enjoyed tours of the Blairsville facility, refreshments, and fellowship.

Jeri Ann King welcomed everyone to the ribbon cutting, “This clinic is a place for people that don’t have any health insurance to find help. It is a dream come true.”

Healing Hands is a nonprofit faith-based healthcare facility. Healing Hands was established to help meet the physical and spiritual needs of uninsured persons in Union County and surrounding areas. The clinic provides general healthcare to adults and children over the age of two who are uninsured, not eligible for Medicaid or Medicare, and have an income less than 200% of the federally defined poverty level.

Healing Hands Community Clinic offers many services including general health care for chronic and acute health conditions. The clinic is not set up to treat chronic pain, prescribe narcotics, provide emergency treatment, monitor pregnancy, or to treat serious mental health illnesses. Prospective patients should bring a previous year’s tax return or a recent proof of income statement.
