A Lubbock clinic aimed at helping children has received a grant.

The Lubbock Children’s Health Clinic received the $5,000 grant from the Lubbock Area Foundation to fund pharmacy assistance and laboratory services for their unfunded pediatric patients.

Lubbock Children’s Health Clinic is a nonprofit organization that has been operating for 74 years to help meet the health care needs of underserved children of Lubbock and surrounding communities.

“As a clinic that sees all children regardless of a parent’s ability to pay, this funding will enable us to provide medicine and obtain laboratory testing for the children we see that do not have health insurance,” said Sue Hill, executive director of the Lubbock Children’s Health Clinic.

The Lubbock Area Foundation is the community foundation for the entire South Plains, and the group says they provide an easy and effective way for people to create permanent charitable endowments for the area.

Lubbock Children’s Health Clinic is accepting patients at its two pediatric clinics located at 302 North University and 1801 East 14th Street.

The clinic at 302 North University is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is staffed with a nurse practitioner.

The East clinic at 1801 East 14th Street is open from 8 a.m. to Noon, providing a walk-in immunization clinic for children ages two to 19, and 1 to 5 p.m. for acute and preventative health care Monday through Friday.
