Siloam’s purpose is to provide affordable, high-quality health care to the uninsured and those who have trouble accessing medical care because of time, language and money barriers. Most patients pay for their care based on a sliding fee scale reflecting their financial resources.
A large and dedicated group of volunteers works with staff members to offer an opportunity for health and a message of hope to an underserved population. More than 400 volunteer physicians, nurses, physical therapists, interpreters, pastoral caregivers and others contributed nearly 13,000 hours of service in 2006, enabling a 43% increase
in patient visits for a total of 13,300.
Thanks to a network of relationships with specialists, labs, hospitals, churches and social service agencies, Siloam can provide holistic, comprehensive care. Together we are committed to breaking the cycle of poverty leading to sickness and sickness leading to poverty.
