About the Fund

The Outpatient Clinic Critical Need Fund was created after the need for support was identified by caregivers who work closely with patients at the Center for Medical Arts in Carbondale and other outpatient clinics. This fund is utilized when a patient’s need(s) cannot be immediately met on their own after a medical visit, and has a lifetime cap of $250.00. Through this fund, patients can receive assistance with items such as:

  • Transportation
  • Prescriptions
  • Emergency lodging
  • Clothing
  • Nutritional needs
  • Medical supplies/equipment
