“From the volunteers who treat our patients and assist with daily the health care professionals and organizations that provide pro bono services for our the individuals, foundations, public funders, businesses, civic groups and churches who provide annual financial the low-income uninsured adults and families who depend on our services...We are one community, driven by the conviction that everyone should have access to quality health care.

The Charlottesville Free Clinic is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) founded in 1992 by Dr. Mohan Nadkarni and Dr. Paul DeMarco during their residencies at UVA Hospital to provide a health support system that offers high-quality and compassionate care to the low-income uninsured in our community, who would otherwise not have access to care and who would otherwise suffer needlessly from many routine and preventable medical conditions. We offer free medical care, dental care, and medications for low-income and low-income uninsured adults between the ages of 19-64 and their families in and around Charlottesville. Out of the 60 free clinics in Virginia in 2011, the CFC is one of only 15 to receive accreditation from the Virginia Association of Free Clinics.”
