who we are
The Community Free Clinic has been helping uninsured adults in Cabarrus County receive free medical care for chronic diseases for over 27 years.
In 1994, Dr. George Liles and Dr. David Lockhart (pictured right) established the Community Free Clinic because they recognized that many low-income working age adults in Cabarrus County did not have health insurance and therefore, did not have access to medical care or prescription medication to treat chronic diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, and COPD.
The Clinic first opened its doors on February 15, 1994. Since then, it has outgrown three locations before moving to its current location in 2003.
Currently, the Clinic has both full time and part time staff and hundreds of volunteers including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, lab technicians and more.
Who We Serve
For low-income, uninsured residents of Cabarrus County between the ages of 19-64, the Community Free Clinic provides free access to medical services and prescription medications.
To qualify, patients must have a household income at or below 125% of the Federal Poverty Line. The Community Free Clinic helps those adults who do not have private health insurance and do not qualify for Medicaid or Medicare.
By treating uninsured low-income adults with chronic diseases, the Community Free Clinic helps to improve long term patient health outcomes and reduce non-emergency room visits to the Emergency Department.
