Amy Anderson, manager of the Eastpoint Medical Center, gave a report of 2016 activities at the regular county meeting Tuesday.
Anderson said the clinic saw 1095 patients an average of 2.5 times for 2,768 total appointments last year. Patients are billed on a sliding scale based on income.
She said one-third of the clients serviced are at or below the 200 percent poverty level, earning less than $24,000 annually. Seventeen percent of patients (187) were uninsured; the majority of uninsured patients (171) were 18 or older.
The clinic treated 144 patients younger than 11; 88 patients were aged 12 to 17; 660 were between 18 and 64 years of age and 203 were older than 65.
Female patients (658) outnumbered males (437).
By far the largest group of patients described themselves as white (988), contrasted with only 66 African-Americans.
Seventy-five percent of medical services provided to the uninsured were funded by a federal grant to the clinic. This includes $68,500 in in-house services and $51,444 in waived laboratory fees.
Only nine patients described themselves as migrant or seasonal, and only 17 were not English speakers.
Anderson said Buy Rite Drugs partners with Eastpoint Medical Center to offer a discount drug program to eligible patients. She said the center is currently accepting new patients and is now a part of the United Health Care network.
