The primary missions of the CommunityCare Clinics are to provide free, quality health care to the underserved and to raise healthcare awareness in the Toledo community. The clinic provides the opportunity for volunteers to discover societal issues, practice principles of public health in an interdisciplinary fashion, and to affect a positive change in the Greater Toledo area. The CommunityCare Clinics constantly strives to improve our impact in the community.
We aim to enrich the educational experience for volunteers both inside and outside of the clinic. The CommunityCare Clinics facilitates a unique experience that places students from different health science disciplines including medicine, pharmacy, and physician assistants in a dynamic, collaborative, clinical setting.
Originally established in 1992 through the joint efforts of the Neighborhood Health Association and volunteer health professionals, students, and physicians, this clinic provides free health care to the homeless population of Toledo. During its rich 20 year history, the Mildred Bayer Clinic has treated more than 2,000 patients and been recognized by the City of Toledo for its contribution to the community. CommunityCare Clinics provides services at Mildred Bayer twice monthly on Tuesday evenings.
In 2010, the CommunityCare Clinics began providing free, comprehensive healthcare services to the under-insured of Toledo. In 2011, the clinic served nearly 1,000 patients. In March 2013, the clinic moved to its current location at CedarCreek Church. The clinic has expanded services to include physical therapy, respiratory therapy, HIV testing and pharmacy services. With the support of local healthcare providers and generous donations from the community, we are able to offer services and most medications at no cost.
In March 2013, we opened the Community Care Women’s Health Clinic to better serve the needs of our female patients. Our gynecologist is board certified and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Services provided at the Community Care Women’s Health Clinic include on-site pap smears, pelvic exams, and general women’s wellness exams.
