Joliet, IL. – Will-Grundy Medical Clinic (WGMC) received a $10,000.00 grant from the Midland States Bank Foundation in January. The Clinic receives no government funding and relies entirely on grants and donations. For every dollar donated, WGMC provides upwards of $20 worth of health care to people who are uninsured or underinsured.
“The Foundation allows us to continue to support our communities.” said Dan Stevenson, Senior Vice President of Banking at Midland States Bank. “We’re proud to give back to the communities and proud of the impactful work that Will-Grundy Medical Clinic provides,” explained Stevenson.
“Midland States Bank has been a friend and community partner of WGMC for a number of years”, explained Shawn Marconi, Executive Director of Will-Grundy Medical Clinic. “They have supported us through grant funding, event sponsorships and event attendance as well.”
WGMC has had an immeasurable impact on individuals and families who receive healthcare and medicine from our volunteer physicians, dentist, nurses and other clinic staff and partners. The not-for-profit also contributes to economic development in Will & Grundy Counties, by ensuring people stay healthy, can continue to work and can remain engaged community members. The clinic helps avoid unnecessary and costly emergency room visits, by ensuring more people can access needed primary care, free or very low cost medications and specialist care.
The mission of the Will-Grundy Medical Clinic is to promote a healthy community by:
• Providing free health-care services to people who are unable to receive care from other sources in Will and Grundy counties.
