The Free Clinic

The Will-Grundy Medical Clinic is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that provides free medical and dental care to adults who have no health insurance or medical care entitlements and meet prescribed income guidelines. Care is provided by physicians, dentists and other professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to the Clinic.

How are we funded?

The Clinic is funded by the United Ways of Will and Grundy counties, our four partner hospitals, local businesses and individuals. We hold three fundraising events and conduct two fund drives each year. Dental and medical personnel offer their services at no charge and the partner hospitals provide millions of dollars of contributed services in the form of surgical suites, diagnostic testing and lab work.


In response to the pandemic, we have transitioned to a telehealth model of operations. You can help our Clinic provide telehealth services and equipment to our patients, purchase PPE & safely deliver medications during this challenging time.

Why Does the Clinic Deserve Support?

The Will-Grundy Medical Clinic has provided a medical home to the uninsured, underinsured and those temporarily without access to healthcare in Will and Grundy Counties for over 32 years. Our clinic provides comprehensive healthcare to those without access to healthcare: among the sickest and most vulnerable in Will and Grundy Counties. Now, as ever, our safety net services play an integral part of maintaining public health.

How to Apply for Patient Status?

Individuals who want to become patients must meet eligibility requirements and must apply for patient status. For individuals that require specialty care, the Clinic must be able to obtain referrals from dentists and physicians who will volunteer their services.
