COLUMBIA CITY Ââ€” After moving from its original location in Wolf Lake at Luckey Hospital to the Wolf Lake United Methodist Church, the Free Health Clinic is set to relocate again â€” to Columbia City.
The clinic will open June 27 at its new location, 524 Branch Ct., Columbia City, across from Ace Hardware, with operating hours from 1 to 7 p.m. the second and fourth Thursday of each month.
The clinic was started in 2007 by Dr. Tom Hayhurst, Kay Luce, Reverend Wray McCalester and Pat Rauh, L.P.N. â€” along with many volunteers â€” in an effort to provide medical services to the uninsured population of local counties.
Now, Dr. Terry Frederick has joined with Dr. Hayhurst to offer free health services.
â€śOur goal is to reach the uninsured and those who have donâ€™t have Medicare or Medicaid,â€ť Frederick said. â€śThere are those who fall into that in-between category who need ongoing medical treatment for things such as diabetes and hyperthyroidism.â€ť
