Hope Healthcare Services Gets Set To Host Stories Of Hope Gala
Hope Healthcare Services (HHS), a non-profit medical organization based in Avon, IN, is pleased to announce their upcoming Stories of Hope Gala, which will be held on Saturday the 26th of September between 5:30 PM and 9:00 PM at the Duke Energy Event Center. The aim of the gala is to bring hope during this challenging year.
According to HHS, several organizations have taken it upon themselves to bring hope to the community in these trying times. In honor of their work, they will be receive recognition at the gala, and each organization has been asked to nominate an individual that they believe best represents their organization and the hope it brings. Senator John Crane will serve as Master of Ceremonies during the event.
This year, the following organizations will be honored: Hendricks County Community Foundation, Hendricks County Food Pantry Coalition, Hendricks County Senior Services, Family Promise of Hendricks County, IU Health West Hospital, and Hendricks Regional Health. Attendants are encouraged to bring their own masks to the event, but masks will be provided at the gala as well.
Hope Healthcare Services, formerly known as Kingsway Community Care Center, is a non-profit organization that offers low cost, quality healthcare services to those without health insurance. The healthcare service’s patients are mostly people who have neither private medical or dental insurance nor access to government programs like VA, Medicare or Medicaid. Their patients are treated by both paid staff as well as caring medical and dental professionals who volunteer their services.
Some of the services offered by Hope’s volunteers include general physical exams, acute and chronic diagnostics, routine dental work, mental health counseling, and chronic disease management. One can find specialists in any of a number of fields, from gynecology and pediatrics to urology, chiropractic care and physical therapy. Hope does not provide services like X-Rays or emergency medicine or surgery, but the healthcare provider is always ready and willing to point patients in the direction of professionals who can offer the type of care they need.
“At Hope Healthcare Services, we’re committed to providing a compassionate and friendly atmosphere for your health needs,” says Hope's Executive Director, John Mollaun. “The clinic focuses on providing medical, dental, and spiritual care to our local community. Currently, Hendricks County is ranked 2nd in the county for health! This is fantastic; however, there is always room for improvement, and we seek to be a part of that positive change. For example, our county still has 15% of the population living with poor or fair health. We also happen to have a larger than average amount of smokers as well as those struggling with obesity. These two health factors can increase the risk for a huge host of health problems, from diabetes to heart disease. It is important that we work as a community to improve our health. We believe that having a healthier community will help Hope better provide care to the vulnerable populations in Hendricks County.”
The team at HHS believes their patients deserve the best medical care available, and they strive to ensure that each and every patient feels welcome and at ease — from the moment they walk through the clinic’s doors to the moment they leave. Whether one is in need of a checkup or similar aid, the Hope team has the skills and insight to help or point towards the resources they need.
Many people see Hope Healthcare Services as a blessing, having received medical care that they may not otherwise have had access to. “They are true hope,” says Ravinder, one of the clinic’s patients. “I didn't have insurance for a while, and it was easy to get in. Very affordable and reasonable prices. The doctors are very experienced, I’ve been in and out of dentists after I broke a front tooth when I was a kid. Here was the first time a dentist numbed my gums before injections and got me to floss every night, one doctor reviewed the X-rays with me and the other fixed a hanging filling next to the other without question. You just have to be vigilant with your appointments because it depends on volunteers.”
Ruby, another patient, says, “Hope Healthcare Services has been a blessing to me and my family. Very affordable. Wonderful staff. Thank you for taking your precious time to volunteer and see us. We appreciate you.”
