Help Us Help-

Every day for more than thirty years, Family Health Care has stood up against disease and suffering for vulnerable people in the KC metro area. When HIV/AIDS first showed up in our gay community and then began to infect so many men, women and children, Family Health Care stood up. Before the government allocated funding for HIV services, the staff (some who are still with Family Health Care) simply provided what they could (limited at times to no more than handholding) for the uninsured and others who were dying of the newly recognized infection. Family Health Care has continued moving forward and has lead the health care community, showing the importance of caring even when there is no clear map to follow.

Now our community is facing the invisible yet pervasive and deadly SARS-Corona-2 virus and the illness it causes – Corona Virus Disease-19 (COVID-19). This virus, like HIV, infects without regard to race or gender or social status. It is not clear everyone will be ok. As soon as the leadership of Family Health Care understood the gaps in the Kansas City metro response, we stepped up. Family Health Care is standing up by being the first testing site in Wyandotte County and the only one in the metro open to anyone meeting the criteria recommended by the Department of Health and following CDC guidelines without regard to insurance or ability to pay. Family Health Care is standing up to host what is now the primary COVID-19 information line for the metro area, with staff and volunteers who are helping identify who should be tested, directing the sick who are seeking care to clinics or the ER, reinforcing the Stay-at-Home directives to blunt the spike of infection, and reassuring people who are mildly symptomatic.

We chose to do this work and we choose daily to continue. But as a small clinic, not funded by government 330 grants like many of the community health centers, we need support from our community to continue. We do not charge for the Corona virus testing and so far, we have no extra money to pay for those tests which are done at private labs who charge $50-$65 per test (we are not using labs that quoted $250 or more for each test). FHC is working closely with the Wyandotte Unified Government Health Department following the guidance of the CDC and other experts, but they also have no funding to pay for these tests. And there are no funds for the staff on the front line performing these tests and continuing to provide other health care services to infected and non-infected patients in the out-patient clinic.

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.- Robert Kennedy

 

About our new name-
Sharon Lee Family Health Care
 
Previously named by our location- Southwest Boulevard Family Health Care Services of Greater Kansas City, Inc.
  • This name was too cumbersome. Over 70 characters. It did not fit many required forms.

  • This name was not the common name most other agencies/providers and patients used to refer to the organization during the past thirty years.
- We chose to change the name to honor Dr. Sharon Lee, co-founder of the clinic in 1989.

Family Health Care is staffing a phone line for questions regarding COVID-19.

Call 913-396-7070 from 8AM until 8PM daily for providers and for the public

 

We are also now providing testing for COVID-19 for those referred by their primary care providers and if they meet specific criteria.

COVID-19 tests are offered at no charge to the patient (we will want insurance info if they have insurance) and are provided through a drive-thru method, but only for patients with a prescription from their doctor or through the warm-line.

 

The patients who currently qualify for testing will be required to meet the screening/triage criteria. We ask that primary care offices provide the pre-screening and only refer patients for the COVID-19 test who meet CDC criteria (available through our warm-line or on the CDC or KSDHE websites).

Caveat- Patients who have symptoms need to test negative for Influenza through their health care provider or will need to have with a rapid influenza test at the Family Health Care drive-thru clinic. ($20 charge will apply for the flu test.)

 

This is a labor of love from the staff at Family Health Care. Any donations will be used for additional equipment, test supplies and other direct costs. Main 913-722-3100 or www.SLeeFHC.org.
