The Shingletown Medical Center (SMC) wants to thank all their donors and volunteers for their support. It is through your continued partnership that we can continue to improve our services and our dedication to the quality of individual lives in Shingletown and the health of the community as a whole.
FYI…Thanks to your support this past fiscal year, SMC treated 2,097 patients for a total of 9,029 medical
and counseling visits. Of the 2,097 patients, 335 (or 16%) were uninsured. This past fall, your Medical Home went through a rather extensive renovation project: new roofing, inside/outside painting and new flooring throughout to make it more inviting! SMC also participated with other local non-profits in the “Think Pink” Breast Cancer Awareness activities and sponsored its first “National Senior Health & Fitness Day.”
SMC continues to work with TrueNorth – Grassroots for Kids at Black Butte Elementary School operating the Food Bank and hosting the weekly Children’s Play Group. SMC began its 2014/2015 fiscal year on July 1st, which continues through June 30th, 2015. This year’s annual fund “partnership” letter was sent in the mail a few weeks back and enclosed were two cards requesting your input. If you did not receive the letter and cards, please contact SMC so we can mail one to you.
SMC and the Shingletown Area Resource Center (SARC) are committed to looking for ways to further help support the needs of our community. SMC needs your input! The returned cards will help us better understand what resource services and education classes are needed in the community, as well as help us improve your overall experience with SMC as your medical home.
“We are looking forward to a great year at our medical center.” stated Tami Fraser, CEO. “This fiscal year
we are looking to introduce new programs, equipment, and a few new faces as well at SMC.” Coming soon is a cargo trailer for the purpose of transporting our emergency tent/supplies for deploying clinic operations to another location in the event of a disaster. Funding for the cargo trailer was made possible by various grants and contributions from SMC donors. Special thanks to Edward Garcia III, Board Secretary & Patti Allison, Development Officer, for their support in the search. A special thanks goes out to Bill Engle, SMC’s newest board member, for his assistance in acquiring the trailer at a fair price.
SMC has begun the process to hire an additional medical provider and support personnel. This will open up
more access for our community to be seen. Also, this upcoming school year, SMC is expanding its
Behavioral Health Services to the local schools. Look for more information this fall regarding Healthy Living
workshops, which will be 6-week programs to teach skills to self manage chronic diseases.
Another new and improved service is the Follow My Health (FMH) Patient Portal. SMC is excited to offer their patients this opportunity to request appointments, ask medication questions and have access to their labs, x-rays results and clinical summary notes – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! SMC’s Follow My Health patient portal also has a mobile app, so you can access your health information anywhere – anytime!
States Tami Fraser, CEO, “SMC is so grateful for the generosity of its community. No matter what level of contribution you choose, every gift makes an impact on our ability to achieve our mission to provide exceptional primary and behavioral health care to our community. And to our volunteers – a heartfelt
thank you for giving so much of yourselves and expecting so very little in return.”
