Charity spotlight: Fordland Clinic

Debby Carl and baby

A pastor in a rural farming community of Webster County puts it this way about the Fordland Clinic: “Five generations of my family have been treated at the clinic. It has a special place in my heart. It’s been a life-saver.”

Those words come from Nick Inman, pastor of the Elkland Independent Methodist Church. Thanks to the clinic, his rare liver infection was detected. And thanks to the clinic, many other county families – many that he knows personally – have had their dental coverage paid for.

“In the rural communities, we’ve always had a history of having a close relationship with our doctor. You would know the doctor in social settings, in restaurants and neat events,” Inman said. “The Fordland Clinic has been like a family to my family.”

All of which are reasons why the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper is proud to call the Fordland Clinic a partner again this year. The golf tournament, part of the PGA’s Web.com Tour, has generated almost $14 million for Ozarks-area children’s charities in its 27-year history.

And here is your chance to help Fordland Clinic.

About Fordland Clinic

color Melinda with baby toes 3

The Fordland Clinic is a non-profit, federally qualified community health center. It sees everyone, regardless of income, six days a week.

However, it is not free. The clinic accepts Medicare and Medicaid, most insurance, and bases its fees on what patients earn. The PCCC dollars come in this way: Whatever the patient cannot cover, the dollars help to offset the cost. Or, if equipment is in need of repair, the dollars certainly help to pay for the fix.

Inman and his wife, Sarah, are proponents of the Fordland Clinic. In fact, he previously served on its board after going through his treatments – partly because Fordland Clinic offers tele-health, meaning that a patient can drive there and meet with a St. Louis doctor on a tele-conference.

“I couldn’t ask for a better team to care of me,” Inman said. “I didn’t feel like a patient.”

He went on.

“The clinic serves our community in more than one way, not only for medical but for dental,” Inman said. “If you look at the Ozarks, one of the many needs is dental. I think that’s a great benefit for the Amish community and many other facets of the county.”

The PCCC – through its sponsors, volunteers, staff and the PGA Tour – is glad to help make a difference.

“A lot of good things come from our involvement with the PCCC,” said Joan Twiton, Executive Director of Fordland Clinic. “We greatly appreciate our partnership with the tournament.”
