Anyone who is not currently receiving medical care for any reason: lack of insurance, inability to pay for care, unable to travel to a doctor, etc.

What services are provided by St. Mary’s Legacy Clinic?

The Clinic seeks to be a “family doctor’s office on wheels.”  Its initial focus is on providing primary care services to people who are not currently receiving health care. It can provide care for both urgent health care needs (acute illnesses, minor injuries) and chronic conditions (such as high blood pressure and diabetes).  Patient education and disease prevention is a strong focus for the Clinic staff.
