Open Arms Health Clinic was conceived by Christian health professionals to help the many families and individuals in our community with limited access to affordable healthcare. Our 2,500 square foot clinic includes six exam rooms, a 20-seat lobby, a children's reading room, a staff lunchroom and a small conference room. In this compact space, a rotating group of volunteers - doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, med techs, social workers, interpreters and office staff – work hard to give patients compassionate, quality care.

Donations and grants supply 100% of our medical supply costs, technology and utilities. Each week, our clinic is full of chronically ill patients who need consistent medical care. All are uninsured or underinsured and do not qualify for government healthcare programs.  All too often, we have to turn patients away due to to lack of personnel, supplies or time. 

Needs:

When you volunteer at Open Arms, you help us keep the clinic running, improve the health of our community and make a real difference in people's lives. You can volunteer for just a few hours a month or more if your schedule allows.
