MISSION STATEMENT
 
It is our commitment to provide high-quality, cost effective health care to all in need, with particular concern for low-income residents who live near the health center. The care will be comprehensive and progressive due to the ever changing and competitive health care environment.

APPOINTMENTS

Hometown Health Center patients will be seen by appointment with their primary care provider by calling 370-1441 during regularly scheduled business hours. Patient appointments are scheduled by members of the registration staff or Call Center employees. Health center patients are encouraged to schedule appointments with a provider, but the Center also offers emergency urgent care and same-day walk-in appointments daily to increase access to care in the community.

The attendant will retrieve the needed information from the patient and then contact the provider “on-call”. The “on-call” provider will then call the patient in a timely manner and address the issue with them over the phone.

AFTER HOURS COVERAGE

 

Hometown Health Center provides 24-hour, 7 day/week “on-call” provider coverage. A patient at HHC who may need to reach a provider after hours will automatically be connected with the Ellis Medicine answering exchange.

 

At anytime after regularly scheduled business hours, a patient will simply have to call 370-1441, the main telephone number at the Center, and they will be connected to an operator at the Ellis Hospital Exchange.

 

RESPECT FOR THE PATIENT


Hometown Health Center believes that all of its patients should feel welcome and comfortable when they visit the Center for healthcare or dental services. We recognize that being a patient can bring with it anxiety. For many it is a new experience and one that no one would choose unless it was absolutely necessary.

 

At HHC, it is our aim to give our patients and their relatives and friends as much information as possible so everyone understands exactly what to expect. It is perfectly normal for a patient to ask many questions and we are always happy to answer them. We want all of our patients to feel welcome and care for them in privacy and with respect and courtesy. We try to make everyone’s visit as pleasant as possible.

 

A “Patient Bill of Rights” is posted in all patient waiting areas and clinical settings. Patient care policies and procedures dealing with treatment or referrals are designed to serve the best interest of the health center patient.

Thanks to ongoing support from Beechnut, Hometown Health is able to offer free baby food to all patients who have an appointment with their child aged 6-18 months. We want to thank Beechnut for their generous donations of quality baby food, which have helped hundreds of families since the program started in August 2011.

HealthFest 2013

 

Hometown Health Center’s annual HealthFest took place on Friday, August 16th this year. The weather cooperated, making it one of the biggest events in the organization’s forty year history! There were almost fifty community vendors and approximately one thousand visitors from around the city of Schenectady. Thanks to all of our sponsors who made this event possible, plus the City Mission for providing volunteers, Radio Disney and our dance instructors for the entertainment, the Schenectady Police (fingerprinting), and all the healthcare organizations who gave free health screenings. We hope to see you next year!
