Assalamu Alaykum / Peace be upon you

The Muslim Association of Puget Sound (MAPS) is very pleased to announce the launch of a non-profit clinic providing free or subsidized health services to the community. MAPS-MCRC Clinic is our latest addition to the health services we provide to the community (health halaqahs, health fairs, dental vans and blood collection). This new initiative is being led by MAPS Social Services (Outbound Good) arm, MAPS-MCRC. The first clinic session is being scheduled on July 17th from 10AM-1PM at MAPS in the MPR room.

 

We are launching the clinic under the guidance of and in collaboration with the Rainier Valley Community Clinic (RVCC), a clinic based in South Seattle dedicated to the care of local families of color. We will provide health and social services to all regardless of race, gender, religion, social class or status.

 

Our goal is to provide culturally competent healthcare for individuals and families who lack access to basic health services and we will provide continuous aid to low-income and underserved groups regardless of their ability to pay. Following the benevolent traditions of Islam, we believe that everyone should have access to basic health care.

 

Our services will be the following:

  1. Wellness Exams and Screening: blood pressure, physical examinations, diabetes checks, heart health
  2. Education and Prevention: help decrease health disparities in the future and to emphasize the importance of preventive medicine
  3. Referral and Follow Up: ensure that patients can be adequately connected to pre-existing continuity care clinics throughout King County

Individuals in our community who have insurance can help the clinic maintain its function by scheduling an appointment as well. Two people with insurance will help cover the clinic cost of every uninsured patient in need. All insurances will be accepted; payment will be accepted on a sliding scale starting at $0.
