The Wellness Tree Clinic is a nonprofit organization, 501(c)(3) that operates on private donations from individuals, organizations and community grants. We estimate that for every dollar donated to the Wellness Tree we give out approximately $50 worth of healthcare services. The clinic utilizes volunteers to do medical, clinical, and front office duties. We also help train students pursuing medical careers and help them fulfill their community service/volunteer hours required for their programs. Many colleges collaborate with our clinic to train & educate students in medical, dental and mental health fields. All expenses are covered by private and local donors, local grants and fundraisers.

Services

The Wellness Tree Community Clinic provides a variety of free acute/short-term regular medical services, and dental services (primarily extractions and fillings), for those at or below 300% of the Federal Poverty Level, and who lack needed medical and/or dental insurance. In addition to basic medical and dental services, we also offer vision services, physical therapy, diabetic care, hearing testing, small surgical procedures, mental health counseling, health education, and we work to ensure patients receive diagnostic labs & x-rays as needed. (Currently, we provide approximately 2,500+ patient encounters per year).

After diagnosis and treatment, we work to find long-term resources to help the patient’s medical conditions and specialty care needs. In providing these ongoing services we help to restore patient’s physical and mental health which helps many patients gain employment or continue being successful and productive in their current jobs.

We collaborate with and accept qualifying patients from many community organizations such as St. Luke’s, South Central Community Action Partnership, Family Health Services, Department of Corrections, Homeless Shelters, and Rehab centers.

We provide a “medical and dental home” for patients who lack financial resources and insurance coverage. Although the Vision of the Wellness Tree is to serve those less fortunate; we consider those special circumstances that life brings. So, if you have recently lost your benefits, are in the donut-hole of Medicare or need patient  assistance for medications, please consider us as a means to serve you during this  transitional time.
