Arubah Community Clinic is being organized to offer a wide range of out-patient medical services, at no charge, to uninsured patients who reside in the Owasso / Collinsville community. The overall scope of services the clinic provides will include (but may not be limited to) the following: Family medical care (acute care and preventative care at start-up)
* Pediatric care
* Chiropractic care
* Biblical counseling
* Health Education

No controlled substances will be kept on site.

Future Services
The Clinic will continue to expand services based on the pool of volunteers, available funding, and reassessment of need over time. Our strategic goals include the following:

* Offer Dental, Vision and Hearing services.
* Offer preventative health exams for pediatric, adolescent and young adults on a routine basis.
* Develop and provide educational opportunities for therapeutic lifestyle change programs.
* Promote creative public relations/public awareness.
* Offer more extensive laboratory and basic radiological services.
* Establish chronic health care services.
* Provide a strong referral system

Seeking to provide care for those who otherwise would have no access to medical care
Arubah Community Clinic seeks to provide care for those who otherwise would have no access to medical care.

Any Individual who does not have private or government funded medical insurance is eligible. If a patient qualifies for a government or private insurance ((Medicaid, SoonerCare, Indian Health Service, Veteran’s Health Benefits, Private Health Insurance)), the Clinic will refer the patient to the appropriate agency. However, the Clinic will treat the current episode while the appropriate enrollment is pursued.

Patients seeking treatment that do not meet eligibility criteria will be handled on a case-by-case basis. The Clinic policy will be to treat every patient that visits the Clinic. Depending on the requirements or limitations of funding sources available to the Clinic, eligibility criteria may be modified.

Referral sources will be identified and coordinated from supporting hospitals and other health service organizations to enhance care for our patients.

Arubah volunteers were helping to inrtoduce themselves to the community the past few months including this booth at Founder's Day Sept. 24th.
The clinic will be housed in the building at 1021 W. Main (in downtown Collinsville) recently refurbished by Collinsville pharmacist Tharyn Nachtigall. Tharyn is on the board of the non-profit group that receives no government funding.
Hilary Nicholson, RN, MSN, ARNP, is the executive director of the clinic.
