Mission Statement The Clinic provides quality health care to the uninsured, in an atmosphere which fosters dignity and respect for our patients. It is our privilege to do so. Vision Statement The vision of The Clinic is to provide quality health care with space, staff, and funding sufficient to meet the needs of the growing number of uninsured in our region...until everyone has access to health care.
Founded in 2001, The Clinic was the dream of two women, Dr. Lorna B. Stuart and the Reverend Marie Z. Swayze. Dr. Stuart and Reverend Marie wanted to create a medical center that would provide primary medical care services to people who do not have medical insurance (1 in 7 people). Since our doors opened in October of 2002, Dr. Stuart and our volunteer physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals have treated more than 81,000 patients who have no medical insurance.The demand for health services for the uninsured and underinsured is increasing dramatically. As a primary health care provider, The Clinic sees an interesting mix of patients. Our patients are people from all walks of life, from downsized employees and small business owners, to students and recent immigrants; old and young, male and female. They do not qualify for Medicare or Medicaid, and often their income is just over the requirement based upon 150% or 200% of the federal poverty level guidelines. When it comes to health care these people simply fall through the cracks and cannot afford the cost of a regular doctor's office visit. They would go untreated and ignored if not for resources such as The Clinic.
