Metro Health Foundation awards grant to Hope Wayne Clinic

building-nov-2016Metro Health Foundation of Detroit recently awarded Hope Medical Clinic, Inc. a grant of $20,000.00. The grant will help ensure quality healthcare services provided by Hope’s satellite medical clinic in Wayne County while Hope negotiates a strategic reorientation of its management and intake systems.

Based on the model of Hope Medical Clinic in Ypsilanti, the Wayne Clinic provides free medical care to low-income, uninsured adults. All treatment at the clinic is provided by volunteer medical professionals, supported by a small paid staff. St. Mary Mercy Hospital in Livonia provides laboratory services. Referrals for specialty care are made as resources are available.

In 2017, Hope Clinic began evaluating its patient intake systems and management system at all levels, including the Wayne clinic. The goal is to establish centralized intake and relationship-focused case management services to better assist each individual patient. The evaluation includes pilot programs at some of Hope’s facilities and reevaluating management protocols for every program. The grant from Metro Health Foundation will ensure that there is no drop in the quality of healthcare at the Wayne Clinic during this transition.

Metro Health Foundation is a private Detroit grant-making foundation supporting Michigan organizations in healthcare and health-related fields.
