The Medical Society proudly supports the Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic and its mission to provide free health care services to uninsured adults living or working below or at the poverty level on Johns, Wadmalaw, and James Islands. Recently, the Medical Society awarded an $85,000 grant to the Clinic for general operations via the Roper St. Francis Physicians Endowment. The grant was administered through Coastal Community Foundation (CCF) and is directed each year toward community-based health programs that improve “health, wellness, and access.”

You may already know that the Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic provides free health care services to uninsured adults living or working below or at the poverty level. What you might not know is that Roper Saint Francis Hospital has been a longtime sponsor, providing free labs, tests, and imaging services through annual, ongoing support.
The Free Clinic’s 31 volunteer physicians and 25 volunteer registered nurses provide primary care health services as well as treat chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, coronary disease, and depression. An on-site orthopedic clinic, gynecology clinic, and psychiatry clinic take place weekly and a dermatology clinic takes place every two weeks.
The Clinic is open Monday through Saturday from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm for walk-in appointments and Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm for scheduled appointments.
Volunteer physicians, registered nurses, and office staff are always needed. Learn more.
