COME JOIN OUR TEAM OF EXCEPTIONAL PROVIDERS

Americares operates four free clinics in Fairfield County in Norwalk, Bridgeport, Danbury and Stamford. Our mission is to provide free quality health care to low-income, uninsured residents in a setting where all individuals are treated with dignity and respect. By partnering with local hospitals and Quest Diagnostics for donated laboratory and diagnostic testing, and by supplementing our team with volunteer staff, we are able to provide free primary to the working poor.

  • Medical malpractice coverage is provided for all volunteers while on site.
  • Providers who have been retired for more than 2 years must show evidence of some continuing work in a related field.
