Hunger is here. Feed hope.

Healing Hands -- helping to make a difference in people's lives

Teresa Strickland sat outside Blairsville’s Healing Hands Clinic giving herself a pep talk.

It went against just about every fiber of her being for Teresa to ask for help.

Yet Teresa also knew that, without aid, she might be physically unable to seek assistance much longer. Already psychologically exhausted from the twists and turns her life had taken over recent months, Teresa also felt her body giving out. And she was on the verge of giving up.

About Healing Hands Community Clinic

Healing Hands was founded in 2007 to supply basic healthcare services to the uninsured of the mountain area (we do not have restrictions as to county or state of residence) as well as to provide an uplifting spiritual message of hope, and exemplify Christ’s love to the sick and infirmed. Healing Hands is a nonprofit non-denominational, faith based ministry staffed by volunteers and funded solely by donations made by individuals, businesses, churches/church organizations and civic organizations; the generosity of the community.

Services

Healing Hands provides free basic healthcare needs such as those you might see in a non-urgent care facility. The Clinic is able to see those patients with sub-acute health problems such as:
• Sore throat/Strep
• Influenza
• Gastric Flu
• Urinary tract infection
• Sinus infection
• Ear infection
• Simple skin lesions/rash

Healing Hands is able to assist the patient in the managing of specific uncomplicated chronic conditions such as:
• COPD/Asthma
• Hypertension
• Diabetes Mellitus
• Hyper/Hypothyroidism
• High Cholesterol/Triglycerides

The Clinic offers affordable lab monitoring (maintaining a budgeted allotment, when funds are available, to assist those patients who are unable to cover the cost), EKG’s and other diagnostic testing which can be performed in-house. Healing Hands will outsource imaging services to regional centers who accept patients on a self-pay or indigent basis and will also assist clinic patients with limited emergency dental care when funds are available.

• Urgent/Emergent care services
• HIV/AIDS management
• Chronic pain management (requiring the use of controlled substances)

• Women’s health services, including pregnancy
• Care normally provided by specialists

Pharmaceutical assistance will be offered through use of generic, low cost medications or through Pharmaceutical Assistance Program (PAP) sponsored by the pharmaceutical companies.

• Completely uninsured and ineligible for Medicare, Medicaid, PeachCare, or any other type of government subsidized insurance
• Have a household income of 200% or less of the federally defined poverty level
• Over the age of two (2)

Prospective patients must contact the clinic either in person or at 706-994-6768 for an initial qualification/triage appointment. The patient will be required to:
• Complete all required clinic documentation
• Provide a photo ID (if available)
• Provide proof of income: check stub, 1099, W-2, previous year’s tax return or, if unemployed, a proof of income printout from Social Security. If unemployed a signed no-income statement will be necessary along with a notarized statement from the person who provides basic living needs.
