Alliance is compelled to maximize the quality, continuity, and availability of medical care for our patients, and minimize the inappropriate use of emergency room services.
How does Alliance work?
Our medical staff helps patients confront and manage their health issues head-first, encouraging and educating on disease management and prevention.
Volunteer specialists provide select specialty care and screenings on-site.
Our Referral Coordinator makes off-site referrals to local physicians and practice groups through Wake County Medical Society's Project Access for specialty services, surgeries, screenings, and X-rays.
We help qualified patients obtain free or reduced cost medications through the Patient Assistance Program and FIGS, and by prescribing generic medications.
Our Counseling Team helps our patients deal with issues that impact their physical health, including depression and anxiety.
All patients and their families have free access to our Wellness Program, which includes access to fresh fruits and vegetables, health education and fitness opportunities. These unique programs help patients self-manage and prevent the onset of chronic illnesses.
