Making Jefferson County a healthier community

Project Access is a physician-driven, community-wide effort designed to link uninsured patients to specialty care and diagnostic, pharmacy and care coordination services. While Project Access is new to Alabama, it has a 20-year track record in Asheville, North Carolina and has been implemented in more than 40 communities across the United States. Even though these programs vary in some ways, at their core the mission is the same – to provide access to healthcare for low-income, uninsured and underserved patients.

Project Access is an initiative of the Medical Foundation of Jefferson County and the Jefferson County Medical Society
