In partnership with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), the Charitable Healthcare Network (CHN) is pleased to announce Grace Clinics of Ohio as the 2023 Free Clinic of the Year Award winner.
Grace Clinics of Ohio, Inc. is a 501 3 (C) nonprofit organization of free medical clinics serving those who are uninsured or underinsured with free medical appointments, prescription assistance, and specialist appointments. Following the clinic’s founding in 2006 in Delaware, Ohio, the organization now serves five locations throughout central Ohio, including Delaware, the Linden neighborhood of Columbus, Marion, Wellston, and their newest clinic in Hilliard.
“The communities we serve view us as a ‘safe place’ in the community and a trusted partner for healthcare. We served over 1,447 patients and provided over 1,900 visits at all locations in fiscal year 2023. Between all 5 clinics, we serve patients that represent over 11 different languages and over 33 countries,” notes the nomination for this award.
Grace Clinics welcomes people where they are in life and comes to meet their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. To those who would otherwise not have access to basic, sound, and high-quality medical care, Grace Clinic’s medical staff will provide that care in a loving, compassionate, non-threatening way.
