Healing, Teaching, Learning and Serving in God’s Neighborhood.
The Bread of Healing Clinic is a neighborhood-based clinic for individuals with financial or other barriers to quality health care. We commit ourselves to respect, love, and learn from the people we serve believing that the atmosphere we create reflects Jesus’ healing ministry.
We demonstrate God’s love for all by sharing hope, faith, and a generosity of spirit with those we serve, one person at a time.
We believe that God calls us to healing in every arena of human life.
We are committed to the belief that we are all children of God, each with our own and differing fits. None of us has all the answers, and we look to each other to learn.
We serve all, regardless of individual faith, and we welcome all who wish to contribute their time and talents in service to this mission.
We work together to ensure that every person has access to the means to achieve health, recognizing that physical, emotional, social and spiritual health are intertwined and cannot be separated.
We recognize the need and commit ourselves to the task of educating the next generation of health care professionals and paraprofessionals in an environment where the whole person is served and where patients have been historically underserved.
We rely on God as the source of our power, and prayer as our communication with God.
Strong Community Value
Aurora Health Care contracted with an independent consultant to evaluate the financial impact of the clinical and dental services provided by the Bread of Healing Clinic in 2013.
The study estimated that the care provided to 2000 uninsured patients in that year saved $4.16 to $4.64 million in health and dental care costs in Milwaukee at large at a cost of $1.35 million -- a Return on Investment (ROI) of 209% to 244%. The major sources of these savings were avoidable emergency department use, reduced hospitalizations, increased patient earnings and improved quality of life.
