Aligned with Saint Thomas Health’s (STH) mission to provide healthcare to all, regardless of race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status, the Saint Thomas Medical Partners-Holy Family Health Center is strategically located in South Nashville to provide quality healthcare to some of the most vulnerable, poor and at-risk populations. Established in 2005 the clinic provides medical, behavioral health, discounted laboratory and pharmacy assistance to thousands of low-income patients from Davidson and Rutherford Counties, TN. The funds requested in the application will support salary and benefits for a bilingual patient navigator to accompany and provide medical information and language interpretation services to patients referred to specialists, to work with post-partum Spanish-speaking mothers to enroll their infants into TennCare, and to provide case management guidance and to navigate patients to community agencies when needing social services. The agency’s outcomes include: 80% of patients will be referred to a Specialist Physician. There will also be a decrease in uninsured infants.
