Our Mission

WGMC seeks to promote a healthy community by:

Providing free health-care services to people in Will and Grundy counties who are unable to receive care from other sources.

Providing these services through dedicated healthcare professional volunteers and other volunteers, together with a paid staff, in alliance with other community agencies and healthcare providers.

We work to accomplish this mission by providing comprehensive, free healthcare to over 1,000 patients each year who are low income and aren’t eligible for medical entitlements. We ensure our patients and clients have a medical home – keeping residents healthy, reducing the number of unnecessary emergency room visits, and reducing health insurance costs in the community. 

With our network of volunteer healthcare providers and a small staff, we keep our mission at the forefront of what we do by providing:

  • free primary care
  • specialist care
  • dental care
  • no and low-cost medications
