XENIA — Living Well Clinic was a recent recipient of a more than $10,000 donation from Greene County’s 100 Women Making a Difference. The gift was used to purchase equipment for the clinic.
There are four examination rooms at the clinic, located at 215 S. Allison Ave. in Xenia, and each one now has a new otoscope/ophthalmoscope unit for examining eyes and ears. One of the rooms was updated with a high-low examination table which enables patients with limited mobility easier access to the table. A vital signs monitor referred to as a “nurse on a stick” was also purchased using the funds. The computerized unit enables nurses working in the intake area to readily obtain a patient’s vital signs including blood pressure, pulse, temperature and pulse oximetry. The unit will also calculate height, weight, body mass index and pain scale.
The Living Well Clinic has been offering primary health care to residents of Greene County since January 2012. Staffed with all volunteer physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, counselors and clerical support, the clinic is open on Tuesday evenings beginning at 5 p.m. to those between the ages of 19 and 64.
Patients new to the clinic are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis, while existing patients are scheduled by appointment. For more information, contact the clinic at 937-372-7177 or explore its website at livingwellclinic.org.
