The Order of Malta Medical Clinic is available two days per month, and it normally stays open for 5.5 hours each day. Most of our patients have presented with chronic problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. We have seen a number of patients for urgent care problems, and we see new patients every month. We try to maintain a family doctor setting. We provide free medications to 95% of the patients seen. We make every effort to stock and provide the medications they need. When needed, we refer patients for blood work and other testing. (Please note that we do not have any controlled substances and therefore never pass out to our patients a controlled substance of any kind, and for any reason.) The Medical Clinic has no partner relationship, except to those patients requiring treatment before dental work can be given by the Dental Clinic.
The Order of Malta Dental Clinic is available for four days per month, and it normally stays open for 6 hours per day. In general, our dental patients are triaged, Xrayed, evaluated and, when needed, have their teeth filled or extracted. When appropriate, the patients are provided with partials or full dentures. They are also given, as needed, free pain and antibiotic medications (please note that we do not have any controlled substances and therefore never pass out to our patients a controlled substance of any kind, and for any reason). When available, we provide free tooth brushes and tooth paste to each patient, as well as denture hygiene products. If the patient needs a difficult oral surgery, as determined by our dentists, we refer the patient to St. John Hospital for that procedure. Because of various reasons, we refer some dental patients to other facilities for treatment. The Dental Clinic has no partner relationship, but does refer patients with high blood pressure and other problems to the Medical Clinic for the treatment necessary before the needed dental treatment can be administered.
MEDICAL AND DENTAL CLINICS
For both Order of Malta Clinics in the year beginning November 1, 2012 and ending October 31, 2013, we ministered to almost one thousand (957) different sick and poor people. During that same period, we brought in almost seven hundred (696) new sick and poor people, and conducted over two thousand (2030) office visits for all these sick and poor people, assisting them with their diseases and ailments.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the The Order of Malta Medical and Dental Clinic at St. Leo's Catholic Church website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2022
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
