On March 4, 2014 Mark Holland, Mayor/CEO of the Unifies Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas proclaimed the month of April 2014 as “Duchesne Clinic Health and Hope Month” in honor of the 25th Anniversary of the opening of Duchesne Clinic in April 1989. Since 1989, Duchesne clinic has been the site of more than 213,913 patient visits, proving a medical home to thousands of residents who otherwise would have gone without access to medical care. In 2014 there are 41,021 patients in Wyandotte County without health insurance, the services provided by Duchesne Clinic remain vital to the health of the community.
In recognition of the thousands of patients cared for a year-long celebration has been planned. Numerous partners, friends and supporters will be hosting events and supply drives in the clinic’s honor. Their efforts this year will honor the past while looking forward, in the words of Sisters of Charity founder, Mother Xavier Ross “to the good that is yet to be.”
