  3. Recruited 30 volunteer nurses.
  4. Partnered with Charlotte County Government as it provides space to operate our Englewood Community Care Clinic on Monday and Thursday evenings from 5pm to 8pm.  The County is building a new annex to house the clinic with 3,000 square feet of space with an anticipate completion date of May 2018.
  5. Received generous funding individual donors, private foundations and community organizations such as the Lemon Bay Sunrise Rotary Club, the Placida Rotary Club and the Rotary Club of Englewood for supplies, equipment and operating support.

Background Statement
The Englewood Community Care Clinic is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that provides free episodic medical services to residents of Englewood and its surrounding communities.  Our local economy has been dependent on the construction and service industries and with the severe downturn over the past 4-5 years, hundreds of jobs have been lost and families have found themselves without health insurance.  Kaiser Family Foundation research found that across the country, for every 100 people who lose their jobs the number of uninsured grows by 85.  This formula suggests that the estimated rate of uninsured adults under the age of 65 in the greater Englewood area could be as high as 35%. This has truly created a health crisis in our community and our clinic, in its first 7 years of existence, has gone a long way in meeting the need to provide quality care to residents who could not otherwise afford it.  We opened in January 2011 and serve patients on Monday and Thursday evenings from 5pm to 8pm.  Since opening we have helped more than 2,735 patients in 6,967+ patient visits through the generous efforts of volunteer medical providers and nurses.  Of the 2,700+ patients seen to date, there have been several cases where our volunteers have literally saved lives.  Without health insurance, these residents had delayed getting care for conditions that  progressively worsened over time.  Our physicians made a difference by quickly diagnosing their conditions, referring them to needed specialists and hospitals, and taking whatever steps needed to get these patients on the path to wellness again.  Needless to say, our volunteers find this work incredibly rewarding as they are clearly making a difference in the lives of many in our communities.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
About 18 years ago, I began a free clinic through the Christian Health Ministries where I met patients once per month at the Suncoast Worship Center in Englewood.  When our local economy started deteriorating in 2007, I experienced an increased demand at my "solo" practice free clinic that I was unable to meet with demands on my career as an emergency room physician and father of 4 children.  It was clear we needed to rally support within the healthcare provider community and figure out a way to help the increasing numbers of area residents who were suddenly faced with losing jobs and no longer having health insurance to rely upon for their health care.  I gathered a great group of community-minded "doers" and we haven't looked back since.  The work is rewarding, the patients are extremely grateful and our community is healthier.
Dr. Raymond James, Board President
Englewood Community Care Clinic, Inc.
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
Several of the physicians who volunteer their time seeing patients at our clinic often comment about the warm and caring environment we have created compared to other free clinics they have been associated with in their past.  Our patients are "down on their luck" with low or no-incomes to speak of; yet, our volunteers make them feel welcome.  Everyone from our front desk receptionist, the financial eligibility screeners, nurses and physicians put the patients at ease when they arrive.  The physicians can really tell that the patients are grateful and that is what makes the experience of volunteering here so rewarding.  We are making a difference in the health of these area residents and they appreciate it!
Moving forward to 2018, we are anxiously anticipating our move to a larger and new clinic facility under construction at the West Charlotte County Annex in Englewood scheduled for completion in May.  We are particularly excited that we will be able to provide a much needed new service by having a dental treatment room where volunteer dentists, assistants and hygienists will volunteer their time to serve clinic patients who are referred to them.  So few people have dental insurance and it is critical to maintain good dental health due to its impact on one's overall health.  Not a clinic night goes by where we don't see patients in serious need of dental care but their financial situation prohibits them from being able to afford it.  Our dental treatment room will make a big difference in the quality of life for many in our community. 
Beth Harrison, Executive Director
Englewood Community Care Clinic, Inc.
The Englewood Community Care Clinic provides free medical services to the under-served residents of Englewood and surrounding communities.  Patients are seen on a walk-in basis on Monday and Thursday evenings, 5pm-8pm, at 6868 San Casa Drive in Englewood.  Volunteer physicians and nurses provide medical care.  Community volunteers provide administrative assistance. 
Budget $18,355

Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Adults Unemployed, Underemployed, Dislocated Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent
Short Term Success
As the area's unemployment and/or under-employment rates stagnate, the number of patients seen at the clinic each month increases.
Long Term Success
Patients who do not have access to health insurance will no longer delay seeking medical care for fear of the high costs involved.  As a result, their episodic medical issues will be resolved at the Englewood Community Care Clinic free of charge and they will be healthy and able to seek employment opportunities to increase quality of life.  Another change is that emergency room visits by this population will be minimized as they seek medical attention at the clinic instead of waiting until their condition worsens to the point of being an emergency.
Program Success Monitoring
  • Tracking the number of patients seen at the clinic on a monthly basis.
  • Patient satisfaction surveys
  • Tracking the number of clinic patients making emergency room visits.
Program Success Examples
In the first year of operation, the Englewood Community Care Clinic achieved the following:
  • served 685 patients
  • experienced 1, 075 patient visits
  • recruited 16 providers to provide primary care services at the clinic facility
  • recruited 15 physician specialists to provide care to referred patients in their respective offices
  • recruited 25 nurses to care for patients at the clinic facility
Program Comments by Organization In our first 7 years of operating, volunteer providers have identified a real need for low-income area residents to receive dental services.  There are no low-cost options available currently so we are seeking funding to furnish a dental treatment room in our new clinic facility scheduled to open in 2018.  We have 7 area dentists who have agreed to volunteer their time to serve patients once the treatment room is operational.

Management Comments by Organization
The Englewood Community Care Clinic, Inc. Board of Directors has started something very special to meet the needs of many in our community who have found themselves without health insurance coverage due to the loss of employment.  Since opening our doors in January 2011, we have served more than 2,451 patients with an all-volunteer force of medical providers and nurses.  Patients have driven to our clinic from as far as Sarasota and Punta Gorda to get needed medical care!  Needless to say, our first 6 years have been extremely successful but with that success comes challenges.  The outlook for our community's unemployment rate has improved but not as significantly as hoped.  Wages are still low in our service-based economy so the need for continuing the mission of our clinic by serving more uninsured patients will continue to grow.  The Affordable Care Act does not seem to have made health insurance affordable for our patients who are working, but at low-wage and often part-time jobs.  Our volunteers are some of the most giving and dedicated individuals I've seen; however, we are at a point where full time staffing may be needed to ensure patient case management, volunteer recruitment and marketing/development opportunities are maximized.  We are also in need of medical and office supplies throughout the year.  Over the next year, our hope is to be able to expand the number of evenings the clinic is open so that more patients can be served.  Please feel free to contact me at 941-223-3780 or by e-mail at englewoodcareclinic@verizon.net for more information.  Better yet, stop by the clinic on a Monday or Thursday evening to see us in action!
Your financial investment in the Englewood Community Care Clinic will produce great returns by improving the quality of life (and in some cases actually saving lives) of some of the neediest in our communities.  Thank you for taking the time to learn about our great work!

Governance Comments by Organization What started out seven years ago as an idea and a dream for no-cost medical care for the uninsured members of our community, has slowly evolved into a reality that I am so proud to be a part of. As President of the Board of Directors of the Englewood Community Care Clinic, a 501(c)(3), nonprofit medical clinic, I am pleased to share that our community has embraced our efforts and has joined forces with us by contributing, volunteering, and believing in our mission. In our first 7 years, we have seen 2,735+ patients and have had 6,967 patient visits by being open from 5pm to 8pm, Monday and Thursday evenings each week. We can count among our successes that we have helped people get back to work, diagnosed cancer, stabilized blood sugars and blood pressures, and reassured people that they might not be as sick as they feared they were. We hope to expand our services by being available more evenings, plan to add a dental treatment room in 2018, and we hope to continue to network with even more health care professionals in our community to continue to provide episodic medical care to those in our community who might not otherwise receive it. Your financial support will make a tremendous difference for all our patients. Thank you.

-Dr. Raymond A. James

We began operating as a free clinic in January 2011.  As a result, we e-filed a 990-N since our revenues in 2010 were less than $5,000.  We filed a 990 for 2011, 2012, and 2013.  In September 2014, Dowd Whittaker and Associates, CPAs, PA completed our first audit (for our fiscal year 2013).  The same firm completed our 2014, 2015 and 2016 audits and has been engaged to conduct our 2017 audit this spring.
