Clínica Médicos is a unique healthcare clinic that provides bilingual services to Chattanooga's under-served Latino population unrestricted by age, gender, pregnancy, or insurance status. For Latino families, a trip to the doctor for one member is often a trip for the entire family. Children spend hours in the waiting room as other members of the family are seen by the doctor. Building a playground outside of the building will help Clínica Médicos break down the barriers that often keep the community that they serve from receiving the healthcare that they need. Giving children an active outlet to play together while their family members are getting the care that they need will create a welcoming experience from start to finish.
