Free medical service visits Pike County

[please note: slideshow contains graphic images]

The first carload of patients for the Remote Area Medical clinic arrived Friday evening. By 4:30 a.m. Saturday morning, 136 people were waiting on a field above Pike County Central High School where local officials had set up a parking area.

By 7:15, 750 people had arrived, and the Pike County sheriff’s office began turning people away. The patients who got in received, $80,410 worth of care, according to RAM’s calculations.

RAM, which is based in Tennessee, started out providing medical care overseas, in remote areas of the Amazon, where doctors can be hard to find, if they live there at all. But the organization’s founder, Stan Brock, soon realized a need in the United States. Today 60 percent of the group’s medical missions are to places like Pikeville.
