Extensive renovation was needed to turn this former pool hall into what is now a state of the art medical facility. The clinic currently includes a waiting room, front office, laboratory, pharmacy, three exam rooms, two restrooms, physician office and a large storage area. The renovation project was donated by the funds and hands of a generous hometown community who could see firsthand the desperate need of many who neglect their healthcare needs due to a lack of financial resources. God pierced the hearts of local merchants, business professionals, and individuals who volunteered time and resources to bring this project to fruition. The clinic opened its doors on May 9, 2006 and has been fully operational since.
Rapha Ministries offers primary healthcare, pharmaceutical and radiology services to adults and children, who are uninsured, do not receive governmental medical assistance or have no financial resources to afford medical care. Services are provided in a modern, well equipped facility with a volunteer staff of compassionate medical professionals focused on meeting people at their point of need. Rapha currently has two medical doctors, one physician assistant, one registered nurse, three office administrators, one pharmacists, and six prayer warriors volunteering time monthly. Rapha also recently received funding to hire a part-time Clinic Coordinator to oversee clinic operations and improve continuity of care as the needs of our community continue to grow.
The clinic operates as any primary care physician office would. We currently have a patient base of approximately 150. We are committed to serving those already established in our clinic and look forward to a future where with more volunteers and financial commitments we can serve more of those in need. Our volunteers work diligently to meet the needs of those God has placed in our care for now and will continue to work toward meeting the greater need. His grace is sufficient.
Dr. Baker firmly believes that by first administering to the physical needs of people, a natural bridge is built which allows volunteers to meet and fulfill patients’ spiritual needs as well. The goal at Rapha is to see people healed physically and spiritually. We are witnessing the transformation of lives right before our very eyes. Not only are our patients healthier physically, but their heads are lifted just as the Word promises. We praise Rapha, the Lord our Healer, that He still does miracles today. At the core of Rapha Ministries, Inc. is the love of God and the principles set forth in the Bible.
