For people who do not have health insurance, Access Carroll is a lifesaver that can help them maintain good health and learn to manage any acute or chronic illness closer to home.
Founded in 2005, Access Carroll is a joint venture between Carroll Hospital Center, the Carroll County Health Department and the Partnership for a Healthier Carroll County that provides free health care to uninsured, low-income Carroll County residents who meet certain eligibility requirements.
Access Carroll consists of a health care team involving volunteer physicians, nurses and other medical professionals who work together to provide patients with primary medical care. Medication assistance, specialty care, diagnostic and laboratory testing, and patient education are also available onsite.
Since its inception Access Carroll has experienced a tremendous growth in the number of people seeking health care services. During its first year, Access Carroll provided visits to 477 patients and by 2012 that number ballooned to 4,510 with cumulative patient visits reaching 40,135.
As the only free medical practice in Carroll County, the staff at Access Carroll strives to help residents with their health care needs in a warm, friendly environment, and in the process also helps give people the chance to have better lives.
