On Saturday, Nov. 9, the ribbon cutting for the Missouri Ozarks Community Health Clinic was held in Licking. The clinic is located just west of the elementary school parking lot on College Street, and will be open five days a week for appointments and some walk-ins, depending on their schedule.
Missouri Ozarks Community Health is a private, non-profit organization and is a federally qualified health center. It was established in 1966 with the intent to provide medical and dental care to all within the areas of Douglas, Ozark, Wright, and Texas counties.
The clinic will take Medicare, Medicaid and some private insurances, and offers a sliding fee for those that are uninsured or under insured. Its proximity to the school campus gives the added benefit of keeping students in classes as long as they are in good health so they can continue to gain knowledge, but it is not just students who can be seen. The clinic will strive to keep teachers and school staff in peak physical health so they can continue to be there for the students and will be serving the community as a whole. 
The Missouri Ozarks Community Health Clinic will be open five days a week, Monday - Friday, from 7:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. The staff includes CEO Tim Shryack, Nurse Practitioner Natalie Jeffery, and Brandi Bathon at the front desk; you can reach them at 573-674-1089 to schedule your appointment.
