The Hope Clinic
13 years of service, one patient at a time
The doctor bills from the hospital kept coming. They run a business. I couldn’t believe that people didn’t just help people anymore.

Like many of our patients, Percell was referred from a hospital as an uninsured patient. He needed ongoing care, a medical home to treat his Diabetes. Before being referred to the Hope Clinic, Percell received only emergency care from the local hospital system.  Percell now receives all the care, education and prescription assistance from the Hope Clinic that was necessary to improve his quality of life and prevent further surgeries due to complications of Diabetes. Follow up for patients received from the hospital systems are crucial. Without care, they will return to the emergency room for these costly diseases.

Chronic Conditions

Dr. William Martin and Dr. Dan Greenberg specialize in adult healthcare, focusing on treating and preventing diseases in adults.  They treat chronic and complex conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome, as well as a wide array of other primary care needs.

65% of Hope Clinic uninsured patient’s household income is less than $20,800.

The doctor told him
We’re going to have to do surgery tomorrow. You do not want to lose your whole leg.

Percell had to have his toe amputated at the hospital to avoid gangrene spreading and putting his entire leg at risk before coming to the Hope Clinic. When Purcell was sent to the Hope Clinic he received the care he needed and no longer had to wait for a diabetic emergency to receive care. These diseases are very costly for the community if left untreated because they can  result in catastrophic end stage conditions such as heart attack, renal failure and liver failure. The goal for these patients is to stabilize their care by providing a “medical home” and to avoid unnecessary emergency room visits.

Uninsured in America

Three out of four patients at The Hope Clinic either don’t have health insurance or are underinsured. Many of them have gone from clinic to clinic never seeing the same physician twice.

There are over 180,000 uninsured in Gwinnett County.

My faith in people has been strengthened. I’ve got people at Hope that actually care

The care that Percell received at the Hope Clinic was made possible through donations from the community. It is crucial that the Hope Clinic receives community support to provide care to the sickest uninsured patients to prevent strain on the community. You’re not just another chart at the Hope Clinic, you’re worth providing Hope to, a life worth saving regardless of your situation. We will treat you with kindness and respect while you are cared for and help you navigate your healthcare needs. 

The Compassion Gap

The difference between what the patient is requested to pay and the actual cost to the clinic for providing the care is referred to as the Compassion Gap; Patients are not turned away because of their inability to pay, but are expected to partner with the Hope Clinic to help cover costs for the care provided. This welcoming philosophy offers patients a sliding scale for payment based on their household income.

Since 2002 the Hope Clinic has donated over $8,084,000 in health services to the community.

With the help of donors like you, Percell successfully got the life saving medical care he needed.

Percell is one of 8,000 patients whose care we manage. The Hope Clinic’s mission is to provide the very best medical care possible for uninsured patients who have diseases (often multiple diseases) which need, really, an ongoing plan of care and will require medical attention for the rest of their lives.

The Hope Clinic Mission

To provide the very highest quality of Medical Care to those with limited or no access to healthcare and to treat each patient with the utmost respect and kindness without regard to language, national origin, or ability to pay.
