Bedlam (now known as Community Health) clinics are innovative, collaborative programs that have provided affordable healthcare to the underserved in Tulsa County since 2003. Interactive clinics are medical homes to nearly 14,000 at-risk school children, residents of public housing, isolated elderly, single parents and working poor each year.
In addition, the model provides an essential teaching component to OU medical, pharmacy and nursing students. Hands-on training strengthens clinical skills, overall curriculum and cultural competency while heartening an appreciation for volunteerism and efficient clinic operation.
“The Bedlam Clinics provide quality, continuous care to many Tulsa-area patients with chronic disease who would otherwise often be in emergency rooms with one crisis after another,” says F. Daniel Duffy, M.D., former Dean of the OU-TU School of Community Medicine. “Helping to bring their diseases quickly under control has pulled many of them from the brink of serious health crises. They often tell us they don’t know what they’d do or where they’d go for treatment or medicines were it not for the Bedlam Clinics.”
The Team for Children at Risk provides vital services to an extremely vulnerable population in our state. These children are at a critical age for development and growth physically as well as emotionally. Not only is providing specialized services for medical and psychological needs in these young people the right thing to do, it also increases their likelihood of becoming productive adults. The reality is that state and federal funds received for services provided through the Team for Children at Risk covers only a portion of the actual cost of these services. State and federal funds cover only 36 percent of the costs for services provided by the Team for Children at Risk. The team depends on private funds to supplement state and federal allocations to provide these crucial services.
