We are so thankful for our recent partnership with Answer Health on Demand, an online healthcare solution. Through this partnership, our patrons are now able to quickly and easily connect face-to-face with a board-certified healthcare provider.

John Deveau, Medical Director with Answer Health on Demand, says, “(We are) proud to donate our telehealth services to the clients of Dégagé Ministries. This partnership can only serve to help the area in which we live and work and provides a much needed service to this vulnerable population.”

Zach, one of our patrons, had pressing health concerns but was unable to get into his primary care provider for a few months. Because of our partnership with Answer Health on Demand , Zach was able to see a physician right away and be given positive next steps for his health. Zach says, “I am very grateful (for this service). It was convenient and I’m glad you guys have it!” Through this partnership, our patrons are able to access professional healthcare when they need it, right from the convenience of our building.
