Genesee County Free Medical Clinic Information

The Genesee County Free Medical Clinic was set up by Dr. Nagaraju in 1991 to serve the health care needs of the employed uninsured who do not qualify for health insurance or government programs and are between 18-65 years of age and 200% below poverty level. This grass roots effort provides ALL medical service free of charge to the patients.

Presently over 50 physicians, 45 nurses, internal medicine residents, pharmacists, and clerical staff volunteer their time at the clinic. In addition over 258 volunteer physicians engaged in various medical specialties accept referrals of clinic patients. The present clinic is not intended to provide acute care and these patients are referred to the appropriate providers. Three major area hospitals: Genesys, Hurley and McLaren collaborate with the clinic in providing a variety of services. Local radiology groups and laboratories provide diagnostic testing including CT and MRI scans.

In 1996 the Genesee County Medical Society Alliance and the Pi Delta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, International: nursing’s honor society joined forces to organize a 5K run/walk to benefit the patients at the Genesee County Free Medical Clinic. The physician’s wives and nurses involved in these two organizations take an active interest in the health of their community. The run/walk event grew out of a spirit of stewardship and commitment to a healthy community. Together, these organizers are an awesome force raising funds that have a positive impact on the health of the uninsured in our community.

In order to continue this valuable service to our community we look to the generosity of the citizens and business of our community – your contributions will help keep the clinic alive.  Please support our cause and participate in this year’s Healing Hands 5K Run/Walk for the Genesee County Free Medical Clinic on May 13th. You may contact the Free Clinic at 810-235-4211.
