Partners for Healing, a clinic serving the working uninsured, has adjusted its operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“During the crisis, our goal is to continue to support our patients with primary care and access to critical medications for their chronic conditions,” said Director Lynn Brumfield. The need for these medications has not stopped with the COVID-19 pandemic. In this time of social distancing, we are having our patients take their appointments on the telephone and then ‘drive thru’ the office parking lot to pick up their medications. We continue to evaluate the situation and are making changes to our operations as needed.”
A nonprofit organization, Partners for Healing serves residents of Coffee, Franklin and Moore Counties.
“Our mission is to open our hearts and hands in love and understanding by providing compassionate health care and nurturing to the uninsured who are working, disabled or those transitioning into work in Coffee, Franklin and Moore counties,” Brumfield said.
In February and March, the clinic served 296 patients and dispensed 1,092 prescriptions, according to Brumfield.
The clinic is located at 109 W. Blackwell St., Tullahoma. For more information, call 931-455-5014 or visit partnersforhealing.org.
