A Letter From Our CEO

Life has many lessons, one of the greatest is that time passes quickly. In the blink of an eye, kids are leaving home to start lives of their own, the needs of the loved ones that took care of us are shifting, and the world around us is constantly changing. Birthdays and anniversaries are a way of helping us remember the best of our lives’ journeys.

This year marks a very special time in the story of Caswell Family Medical Center, Inc. To some, it will seem like just yesterday when the only doctor in town was retiring. A group of community leaders (many of whom are still very active in our community today) gathered to develop a solution capable of surviving the tests of time. A solution that would ensure access to medical care for Caswell residents, including the most vulnerable who didn’t have health insurance or couldn’t afford to see a doctor through traditional means. This is when CFMC was born in 1978 40 years ago.

Caswell Cares is a campaign that was developed to help our community remember the answer to the question of ‘who is Caswell County?’ The tapestry that has bound our community together for generations has been a sense of caring and concern for the wellbeing of our family, friends and neighbors.

In keeping with the theme of Caswell Cares, our Board of Directors and I hope that you will consider joining us as we start our celebration with ‘$40 for 40’. Individuals are asked to make a contribution of $1 for each of the 40 years that CFMC has served our community. All those that contribute will be voicing their commitment to seeing that CFMC maintain its mission and growth through such programs as our Sliding Fee Scale, Medication Assistance Program, and the Neighborhood Assistance Program. Between now and June, the names of those that contribute will be collected and memorialized on a canvas to be installed in the Medical Center’s lobby that will be unveiled as part of the annual Family Fun Day event to be held again this year on August 22, 2018.

Will you please support us?

What is 40 for 40?

 
CFMC was built on a foundation of community support. This is something that isn’t unique in Caswell but is unique about Caswell. The people of Caswell have always stepped up in times of need to help their neighbors, family, and friends.

It is this spirit of community that CFMC sought to recognize when launching the CASWELL CARES campaign. Taking CASWELL CARES one step further, we hope that you will help us celebrate our community’s legacy by donating $1 for each of the 40 years CFMC has been hard at work.

WHY ARE WE ASKING FOR HELP?

 

In the mid-1970’s, a group of concerned citizens saw the communities need for local, quality health care. In April 1978 their vision led to a groundbreaking for what would come to be known as Caswell Family Medical Center (CFMC). Even though forty years have passed, the historic mission of the organization remains true: ensuring access to medical care for everyone in the community, including the uninsured and the underinsured.

Over time, additional services have been added to improve the quality of life for those who live, work and visit in Caswell County.

CFMC has served over 5,400 residents with over 24,100 medical visits since 2016.

The care received by these members of our community include services such as:

  • Primary, specialty, and urgent care medical services for the whole family, including diagnostic labs and x-rays.
  • Acceptance of all insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid, and offers sliding scale fees for those without insurance who cannot afford their copays or deductibles.
  • House-Calls program providing bedside primary care for chronic disease management to home-bound patients.
  • Neighborhood Relief Fund providing patients with emergency access to assist with prescription copays, gas cards, or other financial support in critical situations.
  • Cancer Relief Fund providing financial and other supportive services to residents of Caswell County, NC affected by cancer – even those that may not be patients of CFMC.
  • Prescription Assistance Program providing access to free brand-name prescription medications directly from pharmaceutical companies.
  • ACA Outreach and Enrollment Assistance to help individuals understand, navigate, and enroll in insurance options available through the Health Insurance Marketplace.

Nikki and Brad Bettis
Caswell Family Medical Center is important to us because it gives us our own place to go for healthcare right here in our community. It makes everything a lot more convenient for us. We are the parents of 14 children, so having healthcare accessible to us right here in Caswell is huge.

Patti OKeefe
In the years that I have been at the Messenger, I have noticed just how much CFMC cares about the community. They have added a new generator that will be a lifeline to provide electricity for life-sustaining equipment during a major power outage. This generator allows Caswell Family to be a special needs shelter during the hardest of times. They have also opened an urgent care facility for patients that wish to be seen quickly for a medical problem when they don’t have an appointment. In addition, they have updated their radiology equipment, added a pediatrician, Dr. Maggie Martin, and a psychiatric nurse practitioner, Dr. Connie Robinette. Now local patients will not have to travel outside the county for these services.
