Community Health Center
Country Doctor Community Health Center is a nonprofit organization focusing on providing the best health care possible for all patients. Their aim is to treat and provide preventative health care and options for all income levels, and see patients on a sliding scale regardless of income or insurance. The two clinics serving the Seattle area are staffed by compassionate doctors and support personal truly committed to bettering lives on a day-to-day basis.
The roots of the clinics stem from a group of volunteers that operated out of an abandoned building in the late 60's. They hoped to provide help for an underprivileged population in desperate need of medical services. Witnessing the interaction between doctors and patients, and hearing stories directly from patients themselves, it became quite obvious that the need hasn't gone away. In a region where the well-to-do are plentiful, this beacon of health feels all the more important for an often overlooked population. It was my great honor to meet and photograph a small and inspiring window into this world.
