Quality Healthcare That’s Affordable

We feel it’s important that all members of our community are happy and healthy. Centro Latino collaborates with Ephraim McDowell Hospital to provide health screenings to individuals as well as coordinates interpreters for families who are Limited English Proficient. Our goal is to bridge the gap between Spanish speaking individuals and healthcare professionals in order to create a comfortable experience and ensure that proper care is given. Centro Latino also assists people in applying for the reduced fee clinics that are located in the surrounding areas of Danville, KY.

Advocate/ Interpreter for Danville Pediatrics

An advocate/ interpreter is provided for Spanish speaking families . Every day Centro Latino takes appointments for Danville Pediatrics which provides a free clinic twice a month, on Wednesdays. The clinic services children with insurance and children who do not have health insurance and do not qualify for the medical card.

Insurance Assistance

If the insurance has lapsed or if the patient is a newborn theadvocate  assists the family with applying for insurance.

The family is referred and/or accompanied to the Cabinet for families and Children to apply for the medical card.

As of January 1, 2014, the process of obtaining the medical card has changed and the need of guiding the families through the process has increased. There is a lack of Spanish speaking connectors to help families apply.

Ephraim McDowell/ Reduced Fee Program

Children and Adults without medical insurance are assisted in applying for Ephraim McDowell’s reduced fee clinic. If approved, the individual may go to clinics under the umbrella of Ephraim McDowell in Boyle, Garrard, Mercer, Lincoln, Garrard, and Washington County.
