Services Offered to Patients of Rhode Island Free Clinic

We are committed to ensuring that patients receive the highest level of care – thanks to the excellence and expertise of our Volunteer Medical & Dental Corps, community partners, non-provider volunteers, and donors.

Our focus on free preventive and primary health care results in better health outcomes for our patients, many who suffer from chronic and high risk diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. Visits in our clinic reduce the instances of mounting medical debt and unfunded ER visits that deepen the cycle of poverty, while also alleviating health disparities across our state. Through our coordinated services and prevention education, our staff and board certified volunteer physicians and nurses are able to provide a whole-patient approach to care, ensuring that we meet the needs of each individual across a spectrum of medical programming and specialties, including Spanish medical translation services as needed.
