CORPUS CHRISTI - A new partnership will soon help people who don't have medical insurance. Mission of Mercy has agreed to bring its services to Metro Ministries.
The mission's mobile health clinic will be brought-out to the facility starting Wednesday night.
This will provide another night of healthcare services at Metro Ministries' Gabbard Clinic and give Mission of Mercy another night to treat those in need.
"Combining resources allows us to have more docs on the scene to be able to see more folks eventually," says Leo Barrera of Mission of Mercy.
Patty Clark, CEO of Metro Ministries, says, "we serve not only the homeless and the nearly homeless, just those people who are falling in the cracks of healthcare."
Both agencies also help with prescriptions.The combined clinic will start September 18th with follow-ups every six weeks or so.
To schedule an appointment with Mission of Mercy, call 885-5639. The Gabbard Clinic at Metro Ministries is open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
