MAKE A FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION
We depend on your financial support to fund programs and services that expand the scope of our patient and community wellness services.
Here are just a few of the ways donations directly benefit NCHC patients and the public.
- provide a patient with tools to self–manage her chronic diabetes or asthma
- offer free pre-natal classes and new baby essentials for new expecting parents
- decrease non-emergency use of the emergency department--reduce costs, and improve health outcomes for a WeCare homeless patient
- put NCHC physician-prescribed medications and devices within reach for uncovered patients
- purchase books for our reading within reach pediatric program
- underwrite blood pressure, vision and mammogram screenings
- host a weekly on-site Farmers Market and give underserved families access to fresh produce and dietician-led healthy cooking demos
