About us

Western Tidewater Free Clinic (WTFC) offers helping hands, health and hope to our patients.  We provide high-quality, non-emergency health care to residents of Western Tidewater who cannot otherwise afford it.  Our vision is to provide care and create solutions for a healthy community.  We accomplish our mission and vision by:
  • Respecting the dignity of each individual - patient, staff and volunteers.
  • Serving our diverse community.
  • Promoting health and wellness.
  • Partnering with others to bring together needed resources.
  • Providing the highest quality medical care.
  • Valuing our staff and volunteers.
We serve individuals between the ages of 19 and 64 with no medical insurance who live at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.  Patients must be residents of the cities of Franklin and Suffolk and the counties of Isle of Wight and Southampton.  First we determine that a potential patient meets our eligibility requirements and then an appointment is made with our volunteer professional medical staff.
 
Western Tidewater Free Clinic is a not-for-profit organization and needs broad-based community support for long-term viability.  Volunteers and Donations are critical to helping those who need it the most.  Whatever your time, talents or financial situation, you can make a commitment to this Clinic and those it serves.  Come join our team!  You will be making a positive, significant difference in the lives of your neighbors.
