LBU’s Commitment to Enhancing Healthcare Accessibility in the Community

Alfredo Gonzalez, Chief Human Resources Officer and Culture Committee Chair


In today's fast-paced world, access to quality healthcare is a fundamental right that should be available to all members of our community. Unfortunately, many individuals still face barriers when seeking medical attention, be it due to financial constraints, geographical distances, or a lack of awareness. At LBU Community Clinic, we recognize these challenges and are dedicated to breaking down these barriers to make healthcare more accessible for everyone.

Financial Accessibility

One of the primary obstacles to healthcare access is often the cost associated with medical services. At LBU Community Clinic, we have implemented various initiatives to address this issue. We offer sliding scale fees, discounted services, and flexible payment plans to accommodate individuals with varying financial backgrounds. Our goal is to ensure that cost is not a hindrance when it comes to receiving essential healthcare services.

Community Outreach and Education

A significant aspect of improving healthcare accessibility is fostering community awareness. We actively engage with local communities through health fairs and workshops to educate residents about preventive care, healthy living practices, and the importance of regular check-ups. By empowering individuals with knowledge, we aim to promote proactive healthcare seeking behavior and reduce the prevalence of preventable illnesses.

Telehealth Services

Recognizing the importance of technology in healthcare, we have embraced telehealth services to reach patients beyond geographical boundaries. Telehealth allows individuals to consult with healthcare professionals from the comfort of their homes, eliminating the need for travel and reducing associated costs. This approach not only increases accessibility for those in remote areas but also provides a convenient option for individuals with mobility challenges.

Culturally Competent Care

We understand that cultural differences can impact how individuals approach healthcare. To ensure our services are inclusive, we prioritize cultural competency in our staff training programs. Our healthcare professionals are trained to respect and understand diverse cultural backgrounds, fostering an environment where patients feel heard and understood.

Expanding Clinic Hours

Recognizing the constraints of traditional 9-to-5 clinic hours, we have extended our operating hours to accommodate individuals with busy schedules.  Most of our clinics are open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. This allows working individuals and parents to access healthcare services without having to compromise on their professional or familial responsibilities.

At LBU Community Clinic, our commitment to healthcare accessibility goes beyond the clinic walls. We believe that everyone deserves equal access to quality healthcare, and we are dedicated to breaking down barriers to make this a reality. Through financial assistance programs, community outreach, telehealth services, cultural competency, and extended hours, we are working tirelessly to create a healthcare ecosystem that is truly accessible to all members of our community. Together, we can build a healthier, more equitable future for everyone.
