Goshen Medical Center – Eastpointe

The Goshen Medical Center (GMC) – Eastpointe homeless project provides comprehensive health care and mental health services to the homeless and migrant population. To accomplish these goals, GMC-Eastpointe collaborates with the County Health Department, Social Services, Housing Authority, and vocational rehabilitation. Since their three sites, GMC-Eastpointe, GMC-Salvation Army, GMC-Goldsboro, are located near a military base, veterans and their family members also use the extensive services provided.

Services

Comprehensive health care and mental health services are available 5 days a week. Outreach services are provided 2 to 3 nights. Dental services are provided by a contracted dentist at the office and by a charitable organization, “Baptist Men’s Mobile Dental Unit,” in the migrant camps. The sliding fee scale serves as a tremendous benefit for the patients and makes health and dental care reasonably affordable for this population. Referrals for specialty care are accomplished through subcontractors or other partnering agencies.
