Place of Hope Clinic is a charitable medical clinic providing quality healthcare services at discounted fees. We do not receive any federal or state funding to operate our clinic; therefore we charge reduced fees to help cover a portion of our expenses. Historically, patients pay a fraction of the actual cost of providing care during an appointment.
Every medical appointment is $30 each visit. Lab work, if applicable, is additional cost ranging from $15 - $70+ depending on the type of labs that need to be complete. Dental care services is based on a sliding scale fee depending on your income. Your unique medical or dental condition may require a laboratory, surgical, or other diagnostic services which could cost more. Our fees are available for your review at the Place of Hope Clinic. All applicable fees are due at the time of service. We do not offer payment plans.
We accept cash, credit and debit payments. We do not accept checks of any kind, and we do not barter for services or offer payment plans.

Our healthcare services are made available exclusively to individuals who are uninsured or underinsured. We provide affordable and accessible service to our patients. The value of services we render represents the likely uncollectible debt the hospital system would experience if not for our charity medical clinic.
In addition to these savings, the impact of our programs extends to the improved quality of life to our patients and their families, reduced loss of productivity in the workplace due to illness, and increased exposure and sensitivity among rising medical professionals to the needs of the poor and uninsured.
