Her passion is contagious. Her drive is admirable. Her name is Hadley Starratt. She is an EMT, a staff accountant at her day job, and amazing volunteer at Health and Hope Clinic.
A native of Pensacola, she became a giver of her time and energy as a high school student and carries that determination with her today. She is a recent graduate of the University of West Florida with a degree in Biomedical Science and is currently applying to medical school. She has volunteered 145 hours in 2020 committed to serving our medical team and patients. Her servant attitude and heart for the community engender what it means to be a volunteer at Health and Hope.
In Hadley's words, "It's a privilege to serve people. You will never know the amount of difference you can make until you just do it. We are here for one purpose - helping people." In addition to serving Health and Hope, Hadley has volunteered as a Reading Pal and with Big Brothers Big Sisters. Her love for working with children especially those who need that little extra boost of encouragement in life is always in her viewfinder. Hadley says, "if you have the ability to help someone, you always should." THANK YOU HADLEY for making a difference every day.

AS THIS PANDEMIC MARCHES ON into August, we want to thank everyone that continues to support Health and Hope Clinic-now more than ever! We have continued to see more and more new patients, as unemployment continues to climb. Anxiety, depression and suicides are on the rise along with drug use and alcohol abuse. Health and Hope clinic is trying to help combat drug-overdoses by offering everyone in the community FREE Narcan. We have supplied a wide-range of organizations through-out Pensacola, as well as individuals and family members that are worried about a loved one. Health and Hope is also offering FREE counseling for their patients, as a recent survey revealed over 83% of patients wanted to talk to a counselor. 

WE HAVE A NEW COMMUNITY PARTNER with Pathways for Change-Men's Recovery Treatment (MRT), which focuses on breaking the cycle of addiction for men caught in the criminal justice system. Pathways remains the only court-ordered program within a 500-mile radius and is (1) of only 5% nationwide that are faith- based. Health and Hope Clinic will be their medical and dental provider for the uninsured upon entering into the Pathway's for Change Program.
FROM OUR PARTNERS AT BAPTIST HEALTHCARE
We are still seeing increased community spread throughout Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.  At the state level, we are beginning to see a few early indications that the spread may be slowing, but we remain diligent in our work here to continue to respond to the pandemic and to provide all services for those who entrust their care to us.  We continue to flex our space and our staffing to meet the growing need, and still have additional surge plans available should we need them. We are open throughout our facilities, providing all programs and services, in a safe, careful and compassionate manner.  
Please find Mark’s external COVID update video HERE
We remain laser focused on the safety of those we serve and our team members. We continue to implement the latest CDC protocols, all of which can be found on our website.    Our team is being proactive, innovative and compassionate as we continue to help people throughout life’s journey.  
As a reminder, we have reinstated a No Visitation policy at all of our hospitals, the Towers, all medical parks, urgent care centers and physician offices. Exceptions will be made for end-of-life situations, critical caregivers and essential support persons. We understand the critical role loved ones play in a patient’s recovery. We continue to provide virtual visits for hospitalized patients and assist with communications technology between patients and families. We continue to have limited entry to our Baptist facilities and are continuing to screen all who come to our facilities as well as requiring all to wear a mask. We are taking these actions to ensure the safety of those we serve, our team, and our community.  
 We ask for your continued support and advocacy for all in our community implementing infection prevention protocols. We cannot let our guard down, especially as we move closer to school openings and the traditional flu season. Please help us reinforce the importance of the individual behaviors our state’s Public Health Advisory asks all of us to implement:
·       Wear masks in public
·       Socially distance - If you are around other people, keep 6 feet between you. Avoid hugs and handshakes.
·       Avoid crowds
·       Avoid closed spaces, and
·       Avoid close contact.
 
We continue to see positive benefits from treatment options for this virus, including convalescent plasma therapy. Please also help us encourage those who have recovered from a confirmed case of COVID-19 to consider donating blood plasma. This plasma is in short supply but is needed to provide therapy for critically ill patients. More information can be found on OneBlood’s website
We are thrilled we’ve been able to provide virtual opportunities to engage with those we serve and our community. Attached please find information about our free wellness classes and support groups we’ll be hosting in August – we’d love to have you join us.

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." Matthew 25:35-36
