Mission Statement

Our Mission is to ensure that there are no closed doors for those seeking primary healthcare at our clinic in Orange County.

With no county hospital or public primary health care system in Orange County, Lestonnac Free Clinic is acutely aware of how critical the shortage of affordable health service is. We recognize that low-income patients are often forced to make the difficult choice between paying a $10 healthcare co-payment or applying the money toward rent, food, and other necessities.

Our 30 year history of providing free healthcare service to those in need both alleviate the patient's stress of having to make this kind of decision and increases the efficiency of local hospitals. For this reason, the clinic continues to expand our volunteer pool.
