Health Ministries Clinic (HMC) is pleased to announce that it recently received grant funding through several community affiliates of the Central Kansas Community Foundation. “We resonate with the emphasis of the Central Kansas Community Foundation in utilizing locally donated funds to build strong communities,” commented Health Ministries Clinic’s CEO Matthew Schmidt. “We appreciate the investment of the Hesston, Halstead and Newton affiliates in partnering with us to ensure access to healthcare services for everyone in our community.”
A $3,000 grant funded through the Hesston Community Foundation will be used to ensure that Hesston area residents have access to primary care at HMC, regardless of their ability to pay or insurance status.
An $800 grant from the Newton Area Health Fund was funded through the Kansas Health Foundation Fund-Newton. HMC will use the funds to assist Newton area residents to obtain primary care services when they can’t afford their care.
A $1,000 grant from the Halstead Community Foundation will purchase a pulse oximeter to measure blood oxygen and a wheelchair for HMC’s Halstead clinic. Health Ministries has operated the clinic at 126 Main, Halstead since 2015. In 2017, HMC provided primary care services for 670 patients from Halstead and the surrounding area.
