INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL CLINICS
International Medical Clinics (IMC) has developed a new and uniquely innovative model of healthcare delivery to exclusively serve uninsured populations. This multi-physician specialty center addresses the healthcare needs of the rapidly expanding uninsured community in the United States, one of the nation’s top ten concerns. IMC accomplishes this mission by honoring and respecting cultural diversity, conducting ongoing focus groups to identify the needs and issues different populations face, providing substantive and skills-based healthcare education, and offering reduced medical fees. Staffed with multilingual employees, IMC provides superior health care within the context of each patient’s cultural milieu. IMC has indeed developed extensive expertise in international medicine in the United States. Employing the highest professional and ethical standards, IMC has dramatically improved medical care for all patients, as it becomes an integral part of the international community.
Racial and ethnic minorities tend to receive lower-quality health care than whites do, even when insurance status, income, age, and severity of conditions are comparable. Minorities are less likely than other Americans to get potentially life saving screening tests such as mammograms and Pap smears, flu and pneumonia vaccines, as well as to take their children for check-ups. Differences in treating heart disease, cancer, and diabetes partly contribute to higher death rates for minorities. Disparities in the health care delivered to racial and ethnic minorities are real and are associated with worse health outcomes. This trend is unacceptable. The real challenge for IMC lies not in debating whether disparities exist, but in developing and implementing strategies to reduce and eliminate them.
IMC has X-ray, lab facilities, EKG, diagnostic ultrasound, operating room theatre and an on-site pharmacy for the convenience of our patients.
IMC’s hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
