The Hodges University Johnson School of Business Community Profile assessment painted a disturbing picture concerning poverty in Collier County and suggested an ongoing need for the Neighborhood Health Clinic:
• One third of working adults in Collier County have no health insurance
• The percent of working adults in Collier County without health insurance is about two times the national average
• More than 46,000 working adults in Collier County are below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level and do not have health insurance
• Poverty rate of Collier County adults rose from 9% to 15% in the last six years
Phase two of this project will be conducted in October 2013 and we will publish those results soon thereafter.
Our sincere appreciation goes to the Hodges University team for the enormity of this project. … Read more...Read More

Some of our doctors work in “big hospitals”, while others work in “little clinics”. Some spend their lives in research laboratories, while others work tirelessly to keep their patients well. Whether our doctors work in communities blessed with high standards of living or areas stricken with disease and poverty, the sacrifices they have made to become a doctor and the sacrifices they continue to make as practicing physicians are too often overlooked.
To honor our physicians, Congress has designated March 30th as “National Doctors Day”.
At the Neighborhood Health Clinic, we take this opportunity to express our gratitude to our more than two-hundred-fifty volunteer physicians.
