The mission of NeighborHealth Center is to serve Christ by loving their neighbors through the practice of excellent, compassionate and accessible healthcare. The founding board of NeighborHealth was formed to address the growing number of people in Wake County without access to healthcare. The board assessed existing healthcare resources and identified gaps; met with residents, healthcare providers, community and government organizations; and connected with successful faith-based health centers throughout the country.They determined that NeighborHealth could launch a new faith-based practice and uniquely serve an area of high need where no safety-net clinic currently exists. NeighborHealth has been striving to meet the overwhelming need for quality healthcare to our most vulnerable neighbors.
NeighborHealth Center will have their MedServe Fellow function as a limited medical assistant and possibly Spanish language interpreting. The primary community role will include quality improvement analyzing to implement existing QI programs to improve EMR information entry around preventative services. The secondary community role will consist of being a health education coach. Neighbor Health Center serves a global immigrant population.
