The Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center serves one of the areas hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and like so many other community health providers, we were financially unprepared for a global pandemic.  Our frontline staff is working tirelessly to care for our community when it needs it the most.  We remain open and seeing patients as well as utilizing our telehealth services. Our dedicated staff is determined to make these challenging times into our finest moments.

As we are not a hospital setting, we have been categorized by government agencies as “non-priority” on general lists of healthcare facilities for donations of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and other essential medical supplies.   Our patient population has experienced an ongoing history of suffering and neglect – often equated with not being essential in comparison to other populations, communities and healthcare hospital settings.  During this pandemic, the communities we serve have been greatly impacted and are most definitely a priority.

Many people are looking for ways to help and we are very grateful for your assistance.  Your gift will help us provide daily support for our doctors, nurses and other frontline professionals and help enable us to continue the provision of quality, culturally relevant and affordable healthcare to meet the needs of our medically underserved communities.
