If you are uninsured and need healthcare, apply to be a new patient through the Community Clinic patient portal. You will be contacted within 3 business days regarding your request. If you need care urgently, call 417-624-5500.
With the recent Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, it is important to limit contact with the general public at this time. To reduce unnecessary visits to the clinic, the Community Clinic will be refilling prescriptions for three months at a time on all medications that your medical provider approves for such a refill. We anticipate providing all specialty clinics at this time. However, if a clinic is cancelled, we will contact you prior to your appointment.
In addition, we will temporarily stop seeing patients symptomatic of respiratory infections. With this consideration, if you are concerned about an illness, we recommend that if the following are true, contact your nearest urgent care or emergency department to determine their current protocol for your care:
1) You are currently experiencing a fever of 100.5 or above, have cough or shortness of breath;
2) You have traveled in the last 14 days OR you have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus;
3) You are over age 60 OR have significant health conditions.
If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection and you have not traveled or come in contact with someone with Covid-19 and you are not from an at-risk population, follow the self-care at home recommendations (with the link), contacting the emergency department or urgent care should your symptoms worsen.
We thank you for your understanding and we pray that everyone stays healthy and safe.

Quality medical services for people in the southwest Missouri area without access to medical and dental care.
Community Clinic of Southwest Missouri offers a patient advocate to assist you with prescriptions, vision needs, and referrals for additional services that may be beneficial to you.
The Community Clinic began in 1993 when several doctors and community members wanted to help those less fortunate receive general medical care for their immediate needs.
Today we honor those good stewards whose vision and dedication have created a sustainable, charitable entity from the hearts and hands of volunteers.
