Fifteen years ago, in October 2002, The Clinic in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, opened its door to anyone who did not have medical insurance. Fifteen years ago, we opened our door to offer hope, peace of mind, and excellent medical care to those who did not have it.
In the first months of our non-profit enterprise, we had one paid staff member and one occasionally-paid doctor. But we had scores of volunteers, nurses, handymen, and clerical staff. We had scores of people who supported our Clinic financially, as well, to allow us to open and grow.
The Clinic, The Medical Center for Uninsured and Underinsured, has grown and grown and grown! Now, The Clinic offers medical care by a team of primary care doctors as well as many specialists, including cardiology, dermatology, and even acupuncture. The Clinic has the support of Paoli Hospital in obtaining radiology studies for our patients. The Clinic has +the support of Quest Laboratories which gives discounted pricing for lab work.
The Clinic has the support of many churches, whose members contribute not just dollars, but food, winter coats, and over-the-counter medicines.
We are very grateful to all of you who have helped The Clinic and its mission along the way. Because of your help, your dedication, and your gifts, hundreds of lives have been saved and tens of thousands of persons have been able to receive quality medical care.
Although I retired two years ago as full-time physician and medical director, The Clinic continues its successful mission of excellent health care with respect for all.
So come and celebrate at our 15th anniversary dinner. We’d be so glad if you could give your gift of time or money, once again, to support this wonderful Clinic.
Dr. Lorna B. Stuart and Reverend Marie Z. Swayze

The Girls in Medicine Program (GIM) is is on hiatus until further notice. Thank you to everyone who participated, sponsored, mentored or volunteered with the Girls In Medicine and Medicine Healthcare Leadership Camp in 2017. Girls In Medicine was a successful pilot program of The Clinic that provided 102 young women with opportunities to explore careers in healthcare and medicine.
Our patient population is growing, so we need to focus our time and resources on caring for our patients. Special thanks to the medical professionals and volunteers from Paoli and Phoenixville hospitals.
