WeCare Clinic is organized on a non-profit basis to provide a diagnostic and out-patient medical care facility for children and adults with genetic disease in the Amish, Mennonite, and English communities of Kentucky and surrounding states.
A genetic clinic in western Kentucky has been the vision of a group of Anabaptist leaders for a decade. The first public meeting to discuss this vision occurred in March 2009 in Glasgow, Kentucky with over 100 members of Anabaptist communities attending a day-long meeting. Numerous individuals have worked tirelessly to establish WeCare Clinic.
Based on the vastly improved outcomes, and greatly reduced medical costs associated with the care of many patients through genetic clinics, Dr. Morton shared that he is convinced that children and adults suffering from genetic diseases in most communities, especially Plain Communities, benefit from the establishment of genetic clinics. According to physicians and multiple board of directors at the other genetic clinics, WeCare must maintain a focus of specialized, genetic care. There are multiple quick-care, primary care offices throughout Kentucky, but there are no genetic clinics that care for special children and adults. According to Dr. Holmes Morton, "A genetic clinic is of great community need in Kentucky." The board remains committed to providing specialized care for children and adults with genetic disease in the Amish, Mennonite, and English communities of Kentucky and surrounding states.
