Adult General Medicine

Physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants provide general medical care to Clinic patients. This helps alleviate the flow of patients into area emergency rooms to provide basic primary care.

Pediatric General Medicine

The Community Clinic holds a weekly walk-in pediatric clinic for children in need of care. This clinic is staffed by volunteer pediatricians.

Laboratory Services

The Community Clinic provides limited on-site laboratory services for Clinic patients. This alleviates additional trips to the lab, and increases the quality of care received at the Community Clinic. Many times patients would not get needed laboratory work done because of time or transportation restraints. Having the lab on site greatly increases care for these patients by providing necessary information in a much shorter time frame.


Adult Dental

Adult dental services are provided on an appointment-only basis and include evaluation, examination and extractions. The Community Clinic also partners with Access Family Dental, ACHE, and Missouri Southern State University (MSSU) Dental Hygiene program to provide limited cleaning, extractions, and fillings.

In addition to the medical and dental services provided, the Community Clinic has Patient Advocates who provide assistance with mobilizing community resources and stabilizing psychosocial needs of our patients.


Wellness and Prevention Classes are offered to patients for smoking cessation, diabetic support, and weight management;  Diabetic Education Clinics teach nutrition, fitness, monitoring, and disease management (in collaboration with Mercy Hospital Joplin and the American Diabetes Association). 

The Community Clinic focuses on providing services that cannot be found elsewhere in the community and does not duplicate services that may be offered by other local not-for-profit agencies.
