Grace is Growing
From the start, Grace set out to become a place where Central Florida’s most underserved residents could enjoy the benefit of quality, comprehensive, ongoing healthcare and over the last eight years, Grace Medical Home has become an important and dynamic part of our community.
Grace has experienced rapid growth since inception, enrolling and treating 3,500 patients with more than 11,000 patient encounters each year. Increasing demand for patient services has challenged our service capacity, physical space, facilities and basic needs like parking. In our current rented location, we are spread across and cobbled together over two buildings.
We are over-joyed to share with that we have closed on a new “home” located at 1417 E. Concord Street in downtown Orlando and look forward to moving in once renovations have been completed in 2018.
A Medical Home
A medical home is not a building, house or hospital, but rather an approach to providing continuous, comprehensive primary care. Think of a medical home as a hub or home base where a patient’s medical history is known and their medical care is coordinated. Patients have an ongoing and personal relationship with their physician and a place to turn for their healthcare needs.
A Message from Marvin Hardy
“Those who are poor, yet created in Gods image, are not receiving the same quality of health care as others of greater means. In fact, this gap is growing and many more are being left behind. In order to adequately meet the needs of the underserved, Grace must continue to be a high-quality, comprehensive medical home that is fully reliant on Christ and reflects his character. My position before God is no different than the patient I am serving. We are all in need of His grace and mercy. I hope this attitude permeates Grace.”
