The Barriers Islands Free Clinic



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 on Johns, Wadmalaw, and James Islands. 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. In addition, Roper Saint Francis just set up a new office for electronic health records.

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.
