McLaren Central Michigan Free Clinic provides no-cost primary care to low-income, uninsured residents of Isabella County. The clinic is staffed by qualified medical professionals who volunteer their time to serve our community. It is open one night per week and offers basic medical care. Assistance is also available for lab and x-ray tests, and medications prescribed at the clinic. Non-clinical volunteers assist with operations, on clinic night, and with follow-up throughout the week.
