LORAIN COUNTY FREE CLINIC
To provide and facilitate access to quality health care to the underserved.
What is the Lorain County Free Clinic?
Created as a partnership of community members, LCFC bridges the gap between adults without access to affordable or timely health care and the healthcare services they need. LCFC coordinates community resources for low-income residents of Lorain and eastern Erie counties, providing them comprehensive healthcare at low or no cost.
What have we accomplished?
In a country where millions of its citizens still lack affordable access to health care, organizations such as the LCFC are crucial. Though the clinic was established in 1986 only as a temporary solution, it has grown to become a fairly robust operation. Today, 35 physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners are on regular rotation in addition to 75 specialists who are regularly available for appointments. Physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners come to us from Mercy Regional Medical Center, University Hospitals-Elyria Medical Center, St. John Medical Center and Cleveland Clinic, Lorain. With their help, the Free Clinic provided approximately $2.6 million dollars in donated medical care in 2015, and is estimated to register 6,000 patient service encounters in 2016.
Of course, the LCFC could not operate with out the monetary and medical donations received every day. TODAY, WE NEED YOUR HELP MORE THAN EVER! The Clinic receives support from the generous individials, the Ohio Free Clinic Association, churches, community organizations, medical centers, foundations, individuals, corporations, and small businesses. In fact, for every dollar donated, LCFC can provide $ (8) eight dollars in care! In addition to monetary donations, medical centers and offices donate medical supplies annually. With these generous contributions and financial gifts, the LCFC dispenses 10,000 prescriptions annually.
The Free Clinic provides care from sites at three locations and is a vounteer driven organization. To enlist your support, please call 440-277-6641. Physician Medical Liabilty coverage provided. The time commitment is minimal, yet the impact enormous!
