History:
CCHC was established in 1999 to provide outpatient care, basic medications, health education and referrals here at First Lutheran Church.  The appointments are provided free of charge to the patients.  Our thanks goes out to the volunteer efforts of physicians, family nurse practitioners, nurses and receptionists who work at CCHC.  There are three staff members in addition to the volunteers.  In addition, the clinic welcomes nursing students from Minot State University who serve their community health practicums at CCHC.

Providers:
Our number one prayer concern at the clinic is always for more providers.  We currently have 12 physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants volunteering with us, in addition to the medical residents from UND Center for Family Medicine.  The more providers we have volunteering, the more patients we can serve.  Volunteer providers and nurses donated more than $200,000 in value of medical care to the approximately 1100 patients in 2014 alone.

Community Support:
The clinic receives support from St. Joseph's Community Foundation, St. Joseph's Auxiliary, Verendrye Electric Cooperative's Operation Round-Up, Granite Springs, SRT, several area congregations, service project groups, First Lutheran Church Women and many individuals.  First Lutheran Church provides the facilities for the clinic.  The clinic also receives medication and medical supplies from individuals who no longer need them.

Pharmacies:
White Drug, B & B Northwest, KeyCare, Medicine Shoppe, and Market Pharmacy fill our patients subscriptions at $5.00 over cost.  In addition, our nurse coordinators work with several drug companies to secure free medications for people who qualify for low income programs.

Lab:
The clinic is thankful to Trinity Hospital for providing free lab work for our clinic.

How can you help?
  • Volunteer: Physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and receptionists are always needed.
