Friends for Life and Community Cares Clinic

May 5, 2011 

The KishHealth Foundation have officially kicked off our 2011 Friends for Life KCH100 and Community Cares Clinic annual campaigns.

Funds raised though the Friends for Life KCH 100 2011 campaign will be used to help purchase healthcare equipment and technology for Kishwaukee Community Hospital.  Money raised also supports our unrestricted endowment fund for future needs.

In 2010, Friends for Life KCH 100 donations were used to help underwrite the cost of the new Cancer Center at Kishwaukee Community Hospital.  
The Community Cares Clinic is in the process of recruiting two Family Medicine physicians to round out the staff. Once those positions are filled, the clinic will be able to better meet the demand. To help with patient education, clinic staff recently created a durable booklet that contains information on childhood nutrition, developmental milestones, immunizations, Tylenol dosages, and a record for height, weight and immunizations.

Community Cares Clinic is a collaboration among KishHealth System, Northern Illinois University and private donors to provide individuals and families affordable access to primary medical care. The goal of the clinic is to allow patients to establish ongoing relationships with medical providers to meet their health care needs. Care is available for infants, children and adults. The clinic accepts Medicaid and Medicare, as well as all private insurance. A sliding fee scale is available for patients without insurance.

Please consider making a gift to Friends for Life KCH100 or the Community Cares ClinicTo make a pledge, a credit card donation over the phone, or if you have any questions, please call the Health Foundation office at 815.748.9954. We thank you for your generosity, support and for helping us maintain our reputation as progressive community hospitals.
