For any physicians or NP/PAs that may be interested in volunteering ocassionally or once in a while taking patients pro-bono in Southeast Florida, a local non-profit clinic in Jupiter, FL has several needs and asked us to help out…
Please see below and feel free to forward along.
There are two ways physicians can volunteer:
1) give time on Saturdays to see patients at the clinic
2) take a patient pro-bono at their own clinic.
“Yes, we need specialists to recieve patients pro-bono and primary care physicians/PA’s/ARNP’s to also volunteer on Saturdays at the clinic.”
“Opportunity to Give Back
The Jupiter Volunteer Clinic first opened on Jan. 21, 2012. We have since served over 500 patients in the north county area who do not have health insurance, or are under-insured. Our patients range from young adults who have recently entered the work force, single parents, unemployed and seniors in the gap. Our goal is to treat their illnesses, provide the patients with continued medical care, prevent further deterioration of their health and seek alternative health care options. We would not be able to provide this service without the dedication of our volunteer physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and volunteers. Our team of providers, work together, to find the right solution for the lifestyle and financial needs of our patients.
