Clinic Offers Low-Cost Option For Health Care

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Finding quality health care at an affordable price is pretty tough these days.  But what if you could add dental coverage, mental health counseling, and senior daycare, even if you don't have insurance?

Prohealth Medical Center in Franklin is considered a one-stop shop for adults in need.  Among them is Sherri Boggs.  She needs medical care.  The wheelchair bound Franklin resident doesn't have medical insurance, but still only pays pennies for quality health care.  "Oh it helps a lot," says Boggs.  "It costs a lot of money to go to the hospital, to the emergency room every time you have a problem."

Prohealth is geared toward keeping older adults active and health, even if they can't pay.  What Dr. Ray White and his wife started back in 1996 has helped thousands of patients whose medical files fill the walls.  "This started as a family charity," said Dr. White.  "We wanted to give back to the community, so this is what we did."

We want to make sure with every patient that comes in here that we are prevention," Dr. White went on to say.  "We look at your age group and what you need so we can prevent disease.  That's what we want to do."

In addition to Franklin, Prohealth also has a location in Columbia.  If you'd like to learn more about the charity, volunteer, or make a donation, you can go to the clinic's website.
