In November 2014, the foundation broke ground in the village of Bayaguana for the construction of a permanent facility to provide year-round service to those in desperate need.The Community of Hope Clinic was dedicated in November 2016. It is an impressive 7,000-square-foot medical building with an adjacent 2,000-square-foot building.

The clinic provides medical and dental care and has a supporting laboratory and pharmacy. Fully licensed, the facility touts four state-of-the-art, fully equipped dental rooms with digital imaging; family medicine, pediatric, nutrition, optometry and OB/GYN exam rooms; and an urgent care/emergency room.

Since the foundation began it has changed countless number of lives, one including that of Dr. Dickinson himself. Reflecting on his experiences conducting free health clinics in impoverished communities, Dr. Dickinson shared this profound sentiment:

We are reminded that no matter where we live or what we have that we are all brothers and sisters on this earth and part of the human community. We need to look after each other, share our talents and abilities, and remain connected to one another.
