Patient Stories

Giving Back Hope

​MLK recognizes our health care system should have the potential to deliver quality health care to everyone. Yet, we know that some people are not getting the care or health care value they need. Many population groups receive health care that is lower in quality than other sectors in our community which leads to troubling statistics especially for the poor. Individuals & families that have experienced social and economic disadvantage face greater obstacles to optimal health.
We created a community inside the center by utilizing a unique scheduling and innovative care delivery model that promotes access, continuity of care and a true nonstigmatizing patient-centerer approach. Patients greet each other by name in the waiting room, because they know each other, share a similar diagnosis, and attend their clinic visits as a group.
