Duchesne Clinic

Ministry of Care HeartWork of Mercy:  Care for the SickSocial Concerns

Caritas Clinics’ mission is to, in the spirit of the Sisters of Charity, reveal God’s healing love by improving the health of the individuals and communities we serve — especially those who are poor and vulnerable. Founded on the belief that health care is a basic human right, the clinics provide services to indigent patients, regardless of religious affiliation, with an emphasis on the values of compassion, respect of personal dignity, and a sensitivity to human suffering.

Duchesne Clinic is a primary care doctor’s office for low-income uninsured residents of Wyandotte County. Often referred to as a “safety-net” clinic, Duchesne Clinic provides the same services as most family doctors in a welcoming, compassionate environment. The difference, of course, is that our patients have no insurance, not even Medicaid or Medicare, and no way to pay for their care. Our services include primary health care, medication assistance, and chronic disease management.

As safety net clinics, they provide primary health care, chronic disease management and medication assistance to very low-income, uninsured residents of Wyandotte County.

Just For Parents

Just For Parents

You are Irreplaceable

You make the greatest and most lasting impact upon your children’s lives.  We live in a society that does not value faith like they value education and extra-curricular activities.  At your child’s Baptism the priest said: “You have asked to have your child baptized.  In doing so you are accepting the responsibility of training him (her) in the practice of the faith. It will be your duty to bring him (her) up to keep God’s commandments as Christ taught us, by loving God and our neighbor. Do you clearly understand what you are undertaking?” You responded: “I do”.  Jesus Christ is calling you as parents to help your child be the person that God created them to be and to help them get to heaven.  Heaven, is the central goal for your child and everything else follows.
