Financial Summary
Background Statement
Establishment:  The Post Clinic was established in 1996 as a nonprofit corporation under the direction and governance of a Board of Directors with representation from varied backgrounds, including medical, financial, legal, and faith-based.
Mission:  The mission of the Clinic is to provide quality primary health care to persons who are without health insurance, including Medicaid and Medicare.  Income eligibility for services are based on federal guidelines that determine free and reduced meal costs for public schools.  The ultimate goal of the Clinic is to provide a place for residents of Bath, Menifee, Montgomery, and Powell counties to receive ongoing primary care regardless of their lack of finances.
Organizational Description:  The Post Clinic employs a part-time director who has responsibility for management of the program.  A part-time (up to two-days per week) Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant is the primary provider under a collaborative practice agreement for prescriptive authority with the Clinic's Medical Director.  The Medical Director also volunteers up to one-day per month, and provides specialty services as needed by clinic patients.  A number of lay volunteers are available during clinic hours and provide a variety of ongoing and needed services.
Services Provided:  Since its inception in 1996, the Post Clinic as served 4,500(+) individuals.  Services include initial assessment, treatment, and management of acute and chronic problems, referrals for specialty and other levels of care.  Follow-up is provided until the episode is completed.  Emphasis is placed on prevention as is patient/caregiver education.  The care provided focuses on quality management and continuous service improvement as part of a comprehensive care plan.
Licenses, Accreditations, and Certifications:  The Post Clinic is licensed in Kentucky as a Special Health Clinic.  A CLIA waiver has been obtained to permit limited laboratory testing.  All professional staff are licensed in their respective specialties.  The IRS has designated The Post Clinic, Inc. as a nonprofit and conferred 501(C)3 status.  All contributions and donations to the Post Clinic are tax deductible.
Impact Statement
The Post Clinic, Inc. provides free medical health care and works with pharmaceutical companies and prescription assistance programs to assist patients with cost of medicines.  The implementation of healthcare reform will impact the numbers served; however, there will always be people without insurance and adequate healthcare. 

Between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013, the Post Clinic conducted 81 clinics resulting in 861 patient visits. Included were 77 new patients. A total of 187 specialty referrals were made, and 226 labs/medical tests were performed at the clinic or obtained from outside sources. An active caseload of 382 patients is maintained.  The implementation of health care reform will have an impact on number of people seen; however, there will always pInitial outcomes were accomplished as all 77 new patients seen during the 12-month period received primary medical care, and access as needed to: prescribed medications, medical tests, and specialty referral for evaluation and/or treatment. Emphasis continued on patient education and the importance of compliances with treatment goals and maintaining continuity of care. Results are documented in each patient chart.

Progress continued in reaching intermediate outcomes as 95% of all patients seen had subsequent appointments scheduled for three months or longer. 

Long-term outcomes were addressed by completion of 50 chart reviews wherein each provider carefully reviewed patient charts of other providers. Problem lists were reviewed with 50 deemed current. The medication list was current in 50 cases and partial in one. Progress on treatment goals was significant in 41 cases, partial in 7 cases, and marginal in 2 cases. The chart review process continues to show evidence of multiple health needs as well as some rather complex medical issues.

The patient population increased by 134 and reflects the low income, unemployment, and underemployment, that is prevalent in this area.
Needs Statement
Top 5 Most Pressing Needs
1.   Increase hours of operation to better serve patients.  This can be quite costly as the rate of pay for an ARNP or Pysician Assistant can cost
      from $45 to $65 per hour. 
2.   Increased funding to expand ability to conduct blood tests, this is quite
      expensive, but so very important to providing quality and ongoing  
      health care to our patients
3.   Increased funding to enable us to hire a dietician at least one day per
      month to address patient obesity.  This is a critical area of concern for
      a major percentage of our patients.
4.   Recruit more doctors/health care providers to address the increaed
      population of people who are without health care, low-income or
