Thanksgiving Message from CEO, Jim Warnken


The Neighborhood Health Clinic waiting room is filled to capacity. Some are here for the first time; some have been here many times before for treatment of chronic conditions. Anxious faces, not unlike others who routinely seek help from their family physician for a health concern, unaware of what the diagnosis or treatment may be. They work hard, have families, and have dreams for their children. The only difference? Many people are fortunate to have health care coverage; our patients do not.

As their names are called and they interact with the nurses and doctors at the Clinic, a calmness comes over them; they know they have come to the right place. They matter here. A smile, a firm handshake, a pat on the back, a reassuring word; they are feeling better already. They … Read more...

Neighborhood Health Clinic Offers Patients an Opportunity to Quit Smoking – By Chuck Curry

While November 17 marks the 36th annual “Great Smoke-Out” across the country, for the Neighborhood Health Clinic it represents an opportunity to give patients confidence in all areas of a person’s life.

If you can stop smoking, you can develop the strength to begin and maintain an all-encompassing healthy lifestyle. “Quitting smoking is the most important thing that patients can do for their health,” said Dr. Robert Morantz.

Morantz, a neurosurgeon who became a medical volunteer at the Clinic since his retirement, was on the organization’s board in 2008 when it made sure the clinic looked forward in patients’ medical care and not just immediate concerns. “We were not really doing much in the area of preventing illness before then,” said Morantz. “We absolutely had to have a smoking cessation program.”

“It is opening a …

Diabetic Awareness Month – by Shirliann Kaskie

November is American Diabetes month but the Neighborhood Health Clinic puts a focus on diabetes every month of the year.

Adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates about 2 to 4 times higher than adults without diabetes. The risk for stroke is also 2 to 4 times higher for them. Blindness, kidney disease, high blood pressure, neuropathy, and amputation are among the medial complications resulting from the disease. Continued treatment of the disease is a matter of life or death.

“Having diabetes affects everything about me and my personality was not really consistent. With help from the Clinic I have my diabetes under control. That has really helped me at work,” states Michael, a diabetic patient at the Neighborhood Health Clinic.

Learning how to live with the disease is vital to surviving it. Out-of-control … Read more...
