Did you know that GMHC provides services in conjunction with your healthcare needs and beyond? Healthcare is traditionally limited to the physician’s office but here at Great Mines Health Center we see the importance of whole person healthcare. We offer in-home patient care through our Mobile Integrated Healthcare Network (MIHN), food pantry services, community food distribution services, and Community Health Workers who can assist in finding the resources you need.


One of the biggest barriers to receiving care is being able to access it. MIH removes that barrier by bringing care to you, in the place where you are most likely to get better most quickly – your home.

For non-emergency care when you aren’t able to come to the doctor’s office (no transportation or physically aren’t able to come to the office), you don’t have to call 911. An MIH clinician will come to you! These clinicians are paramedics trained to provide healthcare in patient homes.

If you were recently in the hospital and need follow-up, you are a new diabetic having a hard time managing your diabetes, you have a heart illness such as a heart attack, stroke, congestive heart failure, pacemaker, etc. or other medical condition, with a simple referral from your GMHC provider, you can utilize these home services.

Call (573) 438-8342 for more information or to schedule an appointment with the MIHN program.

This is NOT meant to replace the 911 system in case of an emergency. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 immediately.


Great Mines Health Center is proud to be able to assist our patients and our community with food resources.

Food Pantry: On the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month, the food pantry is open to all GMHC patients. This service is by appointment only and there is an application process. Please call (573) 438-8345 for more information.

Community Food Distribution: On the first Tuesday of each month at 10:30 am, GMHC operates a drive-thru food distribution program in the parking lot of the Potosi Great Mines Health Center. No application is required. We do ask for individuals not to line up prior to 10:30 am due to traffic flow concerns. Please call (573) 438-8421 for more information.
