Thanks to a donation from the medical staff at Coshocton Regional Medical Center, the Hope Clinic was able to make two purchases to help better serve its clients.

The Vscan, a handheld ultrasound device, was recently set up and made ready for use by staff at the clinic. They also purchased cartridges to help them run lab work.
“It will allow the doctors to see veins and vessels and see better when making injections into shoulders and knees,” said Debbie Johnson, a member of the Hope Clinic board.
The monetary donation from the hospital’s entire medical staff was for $3,500 and was presented prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are happy to have more services that we can provide,” said Maureen Karl, president of the Hope Clinic board.
The Hope Clinic is run by volunteers and provides free medical services to patients who do not have any form of insurance. The clinic is located at 131 S. Sixth St. and is open on Thursday, starting at 5 p.m. No appointment is necessary.
During the pandemic the clinic continued to serve patients through telemedicine but is starting to see its number of walk-ins come back up.
As of Oct. 8, 62 volunteers have logged 41,801.75 clinic hours. They have served 7,820 patients, 1,946 patients have sought ministry in the prayer room and 4,181 have submitted prayer requests.
The all-volunteer staff of the Hope Clinic of Coshocton has returned $1,802,801 worth of services to the community since opening its doors on Sept. 10, 2009.
