The mission of MercyMed of Columbus:
We exist to proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and demonstrate His love by providing affordable quality healthcare for the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the underserved.
We carry out our mission by serving the underserved across mulitple locations in Columbus. The need for affordable, quality healthcare in our area is very high. We make quality healthcare affordable for the uninsured:
- Our uninsured patients pay anywhere from $30 - $60 on our sliding fee scale to be seen by their primary care provider.
- We believe this exchange works well because it establishes a professional relationship with patients.
We are honored that so many (more than 11,000) trust us as their Primary Care Provider. Dr. Grant Scarborough founded MercyMed in 2012 in response to high rates of poverty and lack of access to healthcare in our community. The combination of many residents in our area living at or below the poverty level (~20%) coupled with the high cost of healthcare means that the number of people in need of the service we provide grows every day.
Primary Care is the heart of our medical mission. Dr. Scarborough has recruited a staff of healthcare clinicians to care for patients. Each day we work to carry out our mission of making healthcare accessible to the undeserved and by doing so we reduce the barriers of access to care for thousands. In addition to primary care, we offer our patients:
- Physical Therapy
- Fresh Produce at the MercyMed Farm
- Dentisry (coming this July)
- and more!
Supporting MercyMed is a great way to increase much needed access to healthcare for the underserved in our community.
