Adult Health Clinic for the Uninsured

The Dr. Anthony N. Elias Health Center for Adults

Adult Health Care

Sponsored by Morton Hospital and funded, in part, by grants from the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation and the United Way of Greater Attleboro/Taunton.

Center Mission
The goal of the Dr. Anthony N. Elias clinic is to provide an alternative primary care setting for uninsured adults. Services are provided free of charge.

Services Provided

  • Primary and preventative care
  • Physicals
  • Sick visits
  • Follow-up management of ongoing health concerns
  • Immunizations
  • Dressing changes
  • Office gynecology
  • Chronic disease management
  • Suture removal

Unavailable Services
Patients with potentially serious problems need to be seen in the Morton Hospital emergency room, as the clinic is not equipped to handle these conditions:

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Open wounds
  • Fractures
  • Severe pain
  • Psychiatric crisis evaluation

Also, no narcotics will be administered or prescribed by clinic staff. Any presenting emergencies will be transferred to Morton Hospital's emergency room by ambulance.

Health Center Staff
Clinic staff consists of a nurse practitioner and medical assistant under the supervision of a clinical and medical director.

The nurse practitioner uses established, age-specific clinical guidelines for preventative care to guide screening, counseling and treatment interventions. Patients will be referred to collaborating state agencies and other area health and human service providers to obtain needed services.

Staff will assess each patient's eligibility for free care or publicly-funded insurance programs such as MassHealth and Commonwealth Care. Once health insurance has been secured, patients will be transferred to a community based primary care provider of their choice.
