Their Mission Statement

Clinica Amistad's mission is to provide free quality primary and integrative healthcare to low-income people who have no health insurance.

Summary of Impact

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Clinica Amistad has been in operation since 2003 providing medial and alternative health care to the uninsured every Wednesday and Thursday evening from 6pm to 9pm. The majority of our patients are in need of primary medical care; however we provide social services counseling, acupuncture, massage therapy, energy therapy, and health education.Clinica Amistad utilizes the WIC facility at Centro de Sur in South Tucson, which is conveniently located for the majority of those without insurance and in need of healthcare.  Our patient demographics include children, adolescence, adults and the elderly from Hispanic, Caucasian, and African-American ethnicities. Also included are Tucsonís refugee populations, such as Bhutanese, Pacific Islanders and other minorities.Approximately 70% of our patients are unemployed and according to recent data this number is growing. Of those employed, 55% work part-time and 45% full-time. Our patients live in zip codes where 28 Ė 37% live below the poverty level and an average of 19% have incomes below 50% of the poverty level.  For many, our clinic is their only opportunity to receive medical care. Our patients have a high incidence of undiagnosed and/or untreated/uncontrolled diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and thyroid disease and most are unable to afford medication or physician office visits.Unfortunately, the need for free and reduced-fee medical services has increased due to the recession affecting familiesí financial resources and the Stateís decision to decrease AHCCCS funding in June 2011.  This has impacted Clinica Amistadís patient volume as patient visits have increased by almost 15%:  we had 1543 patient visits for 2011 and 1774 in 2012.  For social services we had 110 patient visits in 2011 and 135 in 2012, a near 25% increase.  In fact, since 2011, there is a 75% increase in uncompensated hospital care in the state.  This shift corresponds with Clinica Amistadís dramatic increase in new patients and an increased cost per encounter.
