Dr. James Nelson Gingerich, guardian of vision at Maple City Health Center, will offer a presentation called “Affordable, High Quality Primary Care—from Oxymoron to Reality” on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 1 p.m. in Goshen College Music Center’s Sauder Concert Hall.
Maple City Health Care Center offers affordable medical services by valuing relationships, integration and empowerment in order to build community across cultures. At his presentation, “Affordable, High Quality Primary Care—from Oxymoron to Reality,” Dr. Gingerich will share the Maple City Health Center’s vision of quality health care for clients. He will share the newest direction of the health care center serving the needs of its community.
Dr. Gingerich, a 1980 GC graduate, attended medical school at the University of Chicago. He finished his residency in 1988 and quickly returned to Goshen. As one of only four students in his graduating class of 103 who intended to use their degrees to work in family practice, Dr. Gingerich was eager to achieve his goal of opening a health care center in North Goshen, a community that he lived in during his time as a student at the college.
Dr. Gingerich’s dream became a reality when he negotiated a 20-year lease with Goshen’s mayor—for $1 a year. The city also donated additional funds.
