About Traverse Health Clinic
The Traverse Health Clinic is the only local network of volunteering physicians and practitioners delivering healthcare to the uninsured. The organization began in 1975, when a small group of northern Michigan doctors and nurses came together to provide free healthcare to the region’s needy. Today, nearly 500 professional physicians and practitioners donate their time to ensure that the region’s uninsured and underserved get the healthcare they need.
The Clinic serves more than 2,400 individuals each month, providing access to services ranging from primary care, specialty, vision, dental, and mental health services, to outpatient services at participating hospitals. In 2010, $9,045,110 million worth of medical services was provided to Clinic patients. The non-profit organization is supported by private donations, grants, and state funding designated for indigent care. The Clinic itself is headquartered at 3147 Logan Valley Road in Traverse City, but physicians in Benzie, Grand Traverse, and Leelanau Counties serve patients throughout these counties in northwest lower Michigan.
