Burke Health Network is just getting started in our area. Laura Patrick, member coordinator, and Deedra Epley, network coordinator, told us about the organization. They are funded by the Duke Endowment and the Blue Ridge HealthCare Foundation helps manage their grant. Burke Health Network helps about 60 patients (uninsured, making $23k or less) a month get the health care they need – physical and mental health. Many people find out about them by going to a clinic like Good Samaritan East. They are getting their offices, materials, and the like set up at this time.
The documents above include eligibility requirements and documentation needed. A person is accepted into the program for a period of one year. If you know someone who may need the services offered, have them contact Joann Street, member coordinator at 212-4169 to make an appointment.
