Building Better Health Capital Campaign

To meet the continuing need for high-quality medical, dental, and behavioral health services for the uninsured in our community, in August 2020, the Free Clinic of Central Virginia will begin a renovation to create a more modern, functional, and welcoming facility at 1016 Main Street. Upon completion in 2021, the building will allow the Free Clinic of Central Virginia to serve more patients and expand our mental health, health education, and chronic disease management services.

Our Vision and Mission

The mission of the Free Clinic of Central Virginia is to ensure high-quality, compassionate, and comprehensive healthcare for every member of our community. We fulfill this mission by providing high-quality medical, dental, pharmacy, behavioral health, and health education services to those in Central Virginia who do not have the resources to obtain these essential healthcare services.

Our Values

Accessibility

We serve adults who reside in Central Virginia, are uninsured or underinsured, and have income less than 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. Individuals are considered underinsured if their health insurance does not cover the medically necessary service they are requesting, or if there is a demonstrated community-wide lack of access to care.

Patients will not be denied medical, pharmacy, behavioral health, or basic dental services if they are unable to pay. We request that uninsured patients make a nominal donation. Patients with insurance are charged the required co-payment for services.

Care, Respect, and Privacy

We provide high-quality patient care in a compassionate way, respecting the dignity, privacy, and worth of each person.

Advocacy

We advocate for greater access to healthcare for the underserved and improved community-wide health outcomes.

Volunteerism

Our mission will be accomplished through a community-based volunteer program that will include medical, dental, pharmacy, and behavioral health professionals as well as other non-healthcare professionals who provide various support services.

Community Involvement

We extend our care through working relationships with other healthcare providers in our community who agree to make their services available to our patients at no charge. We partner with Community Access Network, Centra Health, Hill City Pharmacy, and other local and regional healthcare providers to create a continuum of services to improve the overall health of our community.

Learning

We provide educational opportunities to assist our patients in improving their health. We provide practical experience for current and future healthcare professionals through partnerships with academic institutions.

Who We Serve

We provide medical, dental, and pharmacy services to adults who reside in Central Virginia, are uninsured or underinsured, and who have income less than 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. Individuals are considered underinsured if their health insurance does not cover the medically necessary service they are requesting.

If you have Medicaid or Medicare, you may be eligible for our dental services. If you have Medicare, you might also be eligible to participate in our MedsHelp program, to cover the costs of medications. Educational classes are provided to all community members regardless of income.
