owners, and attorneys who bring a variety of experience and<br />

talent to the <strong>Clinic</strong>. They set policy, oversee finances, bring<br />

needs of the <strong>Clinic</strong>.<br />

The Board’s governance contributes to the <strong>Clinic</strong>’s Four<br />

Chair of the Board of Directors<br />

“When I first felt the lump, I came in and the nurse told me<br />

they were going to take care of me. They got me in to see the<br />

surgeon and my oncologist…the <strong>Clinic</strong> took me through all of<br />

it. It has been such a blessing to me. I can’t even tell you.”<br />

~<strong>Neighborhood</strong> <strong>Health</strong> <strong>Clinic</strong> Patient

I share the <strong>Neighborhood</strong> <strong>Health</strong> <strong>Clinic</strong>’s <strong>2017</strong> <strong>Annual</strong> <strong>Report</strong> with both<br />

pride and pleasure. As a supporter of the <strong>Clinic</strong>, you are vital to our progress<br />

and our mission.<br />

Since I officially joined the <strong>Clinic</strong> four years ago, I have come to realize<br />

just how great a privilege it is to continue my parents’ vision to provide care<br />

to those without access to quality medical care because they are poor. Their<br />

dignity is undiminished as they work to improve their lives and care for their<br />

families.<br />

The needs of our patients drives the <strong>Clinic</strong>’s work. The addition to the<br />

<strong>Clinic</strong>’s campus is due in large part to need for a more comprehensive dental<br />

program. Too many patients faced oral health issues that had a negative<br />

impact on their overall health and well-being. A significant increase in<br />

volunteer physicians and dentists will increase the scope of service we can<br />

provide our patients<br />

The <strong>Clinic</strong>’s success can be attributed to and the compelling nature of my<br />

parents’ vision. It is only through the strength of commitment so generously<br />

shared by our Board of Directors, supporters, volunteers that we continue<br />

the progress we have made.<br />

to open the<br />

<strong>Clinic</strong> doors each day<br />

Leslie Lascheid<br />

Chief Executive Officer<br />

“When you start to get a chronic disease or illness, and it<br />

hits you, you don’t know what to do. And then you get<br />

someone that is willing to help you the way the <strong>Clinic</strong><br />

has helped me, it’s a miracle.”<br />

One is rarely so fortunate to see one’s vision realized and expanding. With the help of so many<br />

people, I have such good fortune. Bill and I were blessed to see the <strong>Clinic</strong> grow from the vision to<br />

reality; to see it become established and serving our community well. There is always more on the<br />

horizon.<br />

As there were so many staunch champions in the beginning, there are even more today who<br />

diligently persevere to insure the integrity of the <strong>Clinic</strong> and the mission: not to be bigger but to be<br />

better in the service of those who seek our help.<br />

I thank all those who from the beginning embraced and nurtured the vision and welcome those who<br />

will foster the mission, goals and vision as the <strong>Clinic</strong> moves into the future.<br />

Nancy Lascheid<br />

Co-Founder<br />

“I’m a pre-K teacher, always had to be happy and<br />

showing good attitude, and sometimes I had pain.<br />

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I feel<br />

very blessed that the <strong>Clinic</strong> takes care of me”<br />

Our Patients<br />

Share Their Stories<br />

What a blessing?<br />

Mark was suffering from a chronic swollen knee when a<br />

member of the club where he worked suggested that he<br />

make an appointment to have it examined at <strong>Neighborhood</strong><br />

<strong>Health</strong> <strong>Clinic</strong>. That was 11 years ago. Working to care and<br />

provide for family, Mark faced with another hurdle, heart<br />

disease. During a visit to one of the <strong>Clinic</strong>’s volunteer<br />

cardiologists, Mark complained of back pain which led to a<br />

diagnosis of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Mark says: “I believe it<br />

is through God and the volunteer doctors at the <strong>Clinic</strong> that<br />

today I am cancer free.” Further chronic conditions were in<br />

his future, but he continues to work through his condition<br />

with the care provided by the <strong>Clinic</strong>. “I am so thankful. I<br />

could never afford my treatment, care and medications. The<br />

<strong>Clinic</strong> is a blessing to me and my family. I hope to one day<br />

return the kindness.”<br />

Gifts of Gratitude<br />

Life Saving Measures<br />

Ruth sought employment and was hired at a local farm<br />

participating in a DNA study on a variety of vegetables. She<br />

assists by cultivating the seeds from selected tomatoes,<br />

peppers, squash and other vegetables for the study. As a<br />

grateful patient, Ruth shares the fruits of her labor with a<br />

generous gift for the <strong>Clinic</strong> volunteers and staff to enjoy.<br />

Having been a patient for more than two years, Ronnie is<br />

well acquainted with the <strong>Clinic</strong> team. As a result the physical<br />

requirements of working as a painter, pressure washer and<br />

handyman, Ronnie developed an ulcer on his toe. Delaying<br />

medical attention, the extent of the condition exacerbated<br />

to the point where the infection had spread through his<br />

calf. Once he sought care at the <strong>Clinic</strong>, our physicians were<br />

able to save his leg and all of his toes but the small one.<br />

Continuing treatment, Ronnie is now seen twice a week and<br />

is counseled on taking life-saving medications.<br />

Ronnie is overwhelmed with the care and attention he<br />

receives. “It is always a pleasure to come to the <strong>Clinic</strong>.<br />

Everyone is nice. Having relationships with people is<br />

important and I have good relationships with everyone, from<br />

the volunteers at the intake desk to the doctors. I hope to<br />

one day be able to give back,” says Ronnie.<br />

Please enjoy the <strong>Neighborhood</strong> <strong>Health</strong> <strong>Clinic</strong>’s<br />

<strong>Annual</strong> <strong>Report</strong>. I hope you find it as informative as we<br />

do here at the <strong>Clinic</strong>. In these pages, you will learn<br />

how the support of you and other contributors made<br />

an impact on the lives of so many here in Naples.<br />

During <strong>2017</strong>, the <strong>Clinic</strong> cared for patients through more<br />

than 10,000 patient visits and performed 26,000 plus<br />

patient procedures. We are able to do this because<br />

of the commitment of more than 700 volunteers and<br />

countless donors. This is possible because of your<br />

giving in which we leverage each dollar raised 7 times<br />

to deliver over $16.5 million in retail services with a<br />

budget of $2.4 million.<br />

Date Night?<br />

Our patients receive<br />

twice the care when these<br />

couples come to the <strong>Clinic</strong>.<br />

If you haven’t been to the <strong>Clinic</strong> lately, or at all,<br />

please make plans to visit. We continue to increase<br />

our impact and raise the quality of our services. Our<br />

patients deserve the best medical and dental services<br />

and we hope to continue delivering on that promise.<br />

“People who came here and experienced the love that<br />

the <strong>Neighborhood</strong> <strong>Health</strong> <strong>Clinic</strong> provided for them.<br />

They told me that there is a solution here.”<br />

~<strong>Neighborhood</strong> <strong>Health</strong> <strong>Clinic</strong> Patient<br />


Healing and progress go hand in hand at the<br />

<strong>Neighborhood</strong> <strong>Health</strong> <strong>Clinic</strong>. In order to address our<br />

patients’ needs, the <strong>Clinic</strong> must continue to progress:<br />

additional physicians, dentists, nurses; expanded<br />

scope of services and space in which to provide care;<br />

new or upgraded equipment. In the past year, the<br />

<strong>Clinic</strong>’s progress has exceeded all expectations and<br />

allows the <strong>Clinic</strong> to address the increasingly complex<br />

needs in an ever-changing medical landscape.<br />

As we see patients improve and progress to live<br />

healthier lives, there is a positive impact on each<br />

patient’s family. Our work benefits all of our community,<br />

with reduced emergency room visits for primary care.<br />

The hopes of progress and opportunity to which our<br />

patients aspire is so often rooted in the care they receive<br />

at the <strong>Clinic</strong>. That is the “hope” of our mission—“Hope<br />

and healing for those in need.”<br />

Gourmet Vintner Dinner<br />

An Exceptional Evening with our Devoted Supporters<br />

This exceptionally elegant evening, the annual event<br />

hosted by <strong>Neighborhood</strong> <strong>Health</strong> <strong>Clinic</strong>, was held at The<br />

Ritz-Carlton on February 3rd. Through the generosity of our<br />

presenting patrons, Pat and Vince Foglia, along with our<br />

guests and contributors, a record breaking $1,000,000+ was<br />

raised to continue the mission providing hope and healing for<br />

those in need.<br />

Dancing, dining and fine wines were on call for the evening.<br />

As guests arrived, they were welcomed with a wine tasting<br />

experience of twelve premiere vintners explicitly selected<br />

by The Ritz-Carlton’s sommelier. The event moved into the<br />

ballroom with vintners presenting at select tables building<br />

up to a premier dining experience. Cahlua and Cream, the<br />

beloved duo from Naples, had guests out of their seats and<br />

dancing the night away.<br />

The spirit of the <strong>Clinic</strong> was shared through “Voices of<br />

Gratitude” a video featuring the personal experiences of the<br />

help and healing delivered through their care at the <strong>Clinic</strong>.<br />

Reflective of the patients of the <strong>Clinic</strong>, their message speak<br />

of the blessings, life-saving and restorative care at the <strong>Clinic</strong>.<br />

Jon Finstrom, dedicated supporter and auctioneer brought<br />

the evening to a crescendo through the live auction, Save-A<br />

Life, and an all-new experience, Pass the Hat. A hat filled with<br />

items from the guests, and a treasured <strong>Clinic</strong> necklace from<br />

Nancy Lascheid, was auctioned off like a goodie bag from<br />

days gone by.<br />

Susan Jones’s devoted leadership endures, as she and her<br />

committee host an evening full of excitement dedicated to the<br />

<strong>Clinic</strong>. We look forward to the 2019 Gourmet Vintner Dinner<br />

for an evening of festivities supporting patient services.<br />


Youth Leadership Collier<br />

To encourage community awareness and knowledge<br />

of the healthcare community, annually we host<br />

Youth Leadership Collier, of the Greater Naples Chamber of<br />

Commerce. These future community leaders experience firsth<br />

and the selfless giving and commitment that our volunteers and<br />

supporters give to maintain the health<br />

of those in need.<br />

all over our community! Bank of America, Lee Collier<br />

Market; Council of Hispanic Business Professionals;<br />

North Naples Rotary, Women’s Council of Realtors,<br />

Naples on the Gulf Chapter; as well as <strong>Neighborhood</strong><br />

<strong>Health</strong> <strong>Clinic</strong> Guild and volunteers. Stockings for the<br />

Education<br />

Key to providing Hope and<br />

Healing for Those in Need to our<br />

patients is through education to<br />

improve health, drop bad habits<br />

and be proactive in health care.<br />

Diabetic educators meet with<br />

patients one on one, sometimes<br />

with the assistance of a translator<br />

to discuss the nutritional food<br />

choices and quantities necessary<br />

to continue on the path of good<br />

health. Utilizing visual aids assists<br />

with the instructional time.<br />

Other educational courses<br />

offered by the <strong>Clinic</strong> include:<br />

Breast <strong>Health</strong><br />

CPR Protocol<br />

Diabetes Management<br />

<strong>Health</strong>y Lifestyles<br />

“Go the extra mile; it’s never crowded.”<br />

So many in our community go the extra mile. We thank the<br />

restaurants and volunteers who lovingly feed the on-campus<br />

volunteers as they care for <strong>Clinic</strong> patients. Completing the circle<br />

of going the extra mile, our Chief Medical Officer, Robert Tober<br />

MD provided instruction on CPR to the staff of the local, donating<br />

restaurants. Thank you all!<br />

Medication Room<br />

The medication room is key to the successful treatment of our<br />

patients. During a patient visit, a collaboration between the physician,<br />

nurse, and pharmacist determines the best course of treatment to<br />

improve the health of each patient. One key to successful use of the<br />

medication is thorough communication explaining frequency and<br />

timeliness of taking medication. Many patients are provided 30 days<br />

of medication at a time to keep the open lines of communication and<br />

tracking compliance of treatment. The <strong>Clinic</strong> boasts nearly double<br />

compliance of prescription protocol over the national average.<br />

By the Numbers in the Med room:<br />

<strong>Clinic</strong> Compliance rate – 92 – 96%<br />

National compliance rate – 50%<br />

Community Spotlight<br />

The Naples United Church of Christ (NUCC) has been a partner<br />

of the <strong>Neighborhood</strong> <strong>Health</strong> <strong>Clinic</strong> since the <strong>Clinic</strong>’s founding in<br />

1999. The number of <strong>Clinic</strong> volunteers that come from NUCC is<br />

testimony to its mission that includes community outreach and<br />

active involvement in causes that change people’s lives for the<br />

better. Through its Board of Missions and Outreach Campaign, the<br />

congregation embraced the <strong>Clinic</strong>’s effort to address desperately<br />

needed dental care for low-income, unisured adults.<br />

Putting their beliefs into action and opportunity to effect positive<br />

change, the church chose to fund a dental operatory suite for more<br />

complex procedures. Through the recognition and understanding<br />

of the problem, the Church joined together and raised $234,000.<br />

“Partnerships like these allow the <strong>Clinic</strong> to identify needs and<br />

address with action to better serve our patients,” said Keith Maples,<br />

the <strong>Clinic</strong>’s Chief Development Officer<br />

With too many individuals deserving of our thanks to list in<br />

this space, we do recognize the Reverend Dawson Taylor for his<br />

leadership and the support of the entire congregation of the Naples<br />

United Church of Christ.<br />
