TAPM still operates three Guilford Child Health locations, one
in Greensboro and two in High Point, as well as one adult
practice in High Point. There are several other clinics in the
community that may be able to provide care for free or on a
sliding payment scale.
Merle Green, the Guilford County public health director noted
the Evans-Blount Community Health Center on Martin Luther King
Jr. Drive has already seen an increase in patients. “The
Evans-Blount Community Health Center is happy to assist TAPM
and HealthServe. Many of their patients will qualify to
enroll at the health center and it does have the capacity to
enroll additional patients.”
Although the S. Eugene HealthServe stopped seeing patients on
August 9, TAPM has committed to filling patients’
prescriptions for up to 90 days and the clinic will be open
until August 30.
“This is not just a one agency or just a government issue,”
said Ellerby. “It’s a community issue. We have to decide how
are we going to come together and make sure each citizen has
the best options for a private healthcare provider.”
