FREE TRIAGE CLINIC OVERVIEW

The Health Equity Alliance is working to expand our healthcare offerings, including a new service to provide limited free healthcare services – the HEAL Triage Clinic.

 

The part-time clinic aims to reduce unnecessary emergency room visits and increase enrollment in primary care while meeting basic needs for clients, particularly those who are actively using drugs and the LGBTQ+ community.

 

Housed within HEAL’s new Bangor offices at

304 Hancock Street, Suite 3B, the clinic is

operated by staff and volunteer medical

providers. HEAL offers basic healthcare

focused on immediate, non-emergent needs.

 

Offered services include the following:

 

  • HIV/HCV rapid tests, STD panels (CT/GC)

  • Pregnancy tests

  • Limited wound care

  • Limited foot care

  • Basic wellness, guidance, medical advice, and referrals regarding health issues particular to the LGBTQ+ community.

  • Assistance with prescription assistance programs for low-cost medications

 

The HEAL Triage Clinic is designed as a low-barrier access point to meet basic needs; as such, it will not offer ongoing, comprehensive primary care. The clinic will coordinate with local federally qualified health centers, like Penobscot Community Health Center (PCHC), as well as hospital systems, to connect clients with longitudinal, comprehensive primary and dental care.

Currently, our clinic is open on Thursdays 1:30-4:30pm.

The Triage Clinic is still in need of donations, both monetary and in-kind. We are also looking for additional volunteer healthcare providers, and we welcome working or retired physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and experienced RNs.

 

For more information about the clinic, donating, or volunteering, please contact Anthony Fischetti, Director of Operations, at 207.990.3626 or email anthony@mainehealthequity.org.
