The Rapha Clinic of West Georgia, a non-profit, faith-based charitable medical and dental clinic received a large donation from Tanner Health System that has helped establish a new and updated facility. For several years, Tanner has been a top sponsor for the Sound of Medicine fundraiser which benefits the Rapha Clinic, as well as provides additional funding and support for the organization.
“We cannot express our gratitude enough for all that Tanner has done to support the Rapha Clinic,” said Rapha Medical Director, Dr. Amy Eubanks. “Their support through the years has helped us restore health and hope to our neighbors-in-need.”
Since opening in 2010, Rapha Clinic has been providing free medical and dental care to adults who are at or below 200% of the federal poverty level and who are uninsured. Along with medical and dental care, Rapha provides mammograms, Healthy Lifestyle classes, gynecological exams, and cardiac stress testing. Through a Prescription Assistance Program, they help patients receive most of their medications for free. The Tanner Mammography Mobile Unit also partners with them to provide screenings.
This past December, RAPHA was able to open a brand-new facility in Temple to better serve more people in the area. As the need for medical services increases, so does the need for donors and volunteers to support the organization. Patient and data statistics from 2017 showed that for every dollar donated to Rapha Clinic, there was a seven-fold gain in healthcare for West Georgians.
