The Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland is one of the oldest free clinics in the United States and the largest in Ohio. Established as a hotline in 1970 by a group of people concerned about the health and welfare of young adults, it quickly shifted to a clinic serving the health needs of the community. Since its founding, The Free Clinic has grown from a small clinic based in a rented house to one occupying a new 34,000 square feet building with 56 employees and over 350 active volunteers. The facility, located in University Circle, is equipped with 18 exam rooms, 5 dental chairs, 3 group therapy rooms, a modern laboratory, and an expanded pharmacy. The Free Clinic also houses a Community Education Center that is used to educate patients about both health and wellness topics.
The Free Clinic’s mission is to provide quality health care and related services free of charge to those who lack appropriate alternatives.
