Guadalupe Clinic celebrating Safety-Net Week Aug. 13-19

The Guadalupe Clinic will celebrate Safety-Net Clinic Week Sunday through Saturday, Aug. 13-19.
Safety-Net Clinic Week is an annual, week-long celebration that highlights the innovative community-based health care that gives Kansans in need the chance to lead healthy, productive lives. Safety-net clinics provide health care to about 1 in 10 Kansans.
The Guadalupe Clinic, a diocesan donation-based health clinic, has ministered to the community for 32 years.
The generosity of the clinic's patrons helped the ministry with 7,696 patient visits during the 2016-2017 fiscal year. Patients receive a doctor's care and other medical assistance, such as lab tests, X-rays, and medication, all for a requested $5 donation.
David Gear, director of the clinic, said as part of the celebration the patients and staff of the clinic thanks those who support the clinic for their gifts of time, talent, and treasure.
"God bless you all for providing health care for those in our community that would go without if it were not for Guadalupe Clinic," he said.
