Our Patients

Our patients rely on SWCHC for their healthcare needs

100% do not have health insurance and do not receive Medicaid and Medicare.

88% are below 100% poverty level, the equivalent of $24,000 for a family of four.

77% are parents caring for at least one dependent, often more (see chart).

50% are from racial or ethnic minorities. 

35% speak English as a second language or do not speak English as all.

52% struggle with a chronic condition that requires ongoing medical care.

 

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”

Franklin Roosevelt
