The Bridge Clinic is a community resource that has provided free medical care to neighborhood residents since January 2008. The Clinic screens for health issues, offers preventative care, and teaches self-care. Their goal is to help community members become personally responsible for their health and well-being. The Clinic hopes to minimize unnecessary trips to the local emergency rooms by offering basic medical care.

The Bridge Clinic is supported through the generosity of individuals, churches, local businesses, foundations, clubs, organizations and our local healthcare systems. The Clinic is staffed with nurses, nurse practitioners, and doctors who volunteer their time and expertise. The Clinic offers free care to any adult over 18 years old with no insurance required. They also offer free programs and education to help build up the community’s health awareness. Please note that the Clinic is not equipped to care for pregnant women or handle mental health issues at this time.

The Clinic is open Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm (except holidays) and is located on the 4th floor of SecondFirst Church. No appointments are needed.
