The grant award to Good Shepherd Clinic means Oklahoma City’s neediest residents will have access to a full-time, full-service, primary care, and dental clinic in the downtown area as Good Shepherd becomes the medical home for thousands of uninsured, medically vulnerable adults and children.
Specifically, the grant allows Good Shepherd Clinic to:
- Increase hours from six hours per week to 40 by 2014;
- Hire full-time medical and administrative staff;
- Expand facilities and upgrade equipment and services; and
- Increase the number of medical patients by about 5 X’s over 2011 levels.
- The annual number of medical appointments will increase from 914 (2011) to 5,300 in 2015.
- The annual number of dental patient visits will increase from 175 per year (2011) to 2,500 by 2014.
Good Shepherd Ministries is proud to be named a Christian Primary Care Center of Excellence and grateful to the Butterfield Foundation for the opportunity to serve so many uninsured Oklahomans with enhanced services.
