Letter: Mountain Family will serve

Mountain Family Health Centers’ mission is to provide high-quality, integrated primary medical, behavioral and dental health care in the communities we serve, with special consideration for the medically underserved, regardless of ability to pay.

Here at Mountain Family Health Centers, we recently adopted a new slogan: “Our Family, Caring for Yours.” Our employee family chose this phrase this summer; however it is especially accurate now as our community prepares for potential changes to national immigration and health care policies.

Regardless of what happens nationally, here at Mountain Family Health Centers we will continue to provide affordable and comprehensive health services to all patients. We believe health care is a human right. As we have for decades, we will continue to provide high-quality, integrated medical, dental and behavioral care in the communities we serve, regardless of ability to pay.

That means those patients who are uninsured will continue be treated on an affordable sliding fee scale. Today, 33 percent of our patients are uninsured and 44 percent of our patients are enrolled in Medicaid. Mountain Family Health is committed to continuing — and expanding — this care next year and in the coming years. Medicare members are also always welcome at our clinics.

We are here to serve the entire community, and will always do so.

Ross Brooks, CEO, and the board
