The Viola Startzman Free Clinic (VSFC) is the only free clinic in Wayne County.  The VSFC provides health and dental care, medications, and laboratory testing at no charge to low-income (up to 200% of the federal household poverty level) uninsured Wayne County residents. To see if you are eligible to be treated, please refer to the Patients section.

Patients can be seen by appointment Monday through Friday.  There are a limited number of same day appointments for acute health concerns.  Please call a patient care coordinator at 330-262-2500 to schedule appointments. 


We also operate a walk-in "Urgent Care Clinic" on Thursday evenings from 6-8pm.  Patients are seen by volunteer providers on a first-come-first-served basis.  The Urgent Care Clinic is for ACUTE medical needs only (cold, flu symptoms, earaches, coughs, upper respiratory infections, sinus issues, rashes, lumps and bumps, pink eye / eye pain, urinary tract infections, headaches, joins and muscle pain that is new within the last month, etc.)  Patients can check in starting at 4pm.



Our hours are: 


Monday                  10am - 6pm

Tuesday - Friday     8am - 4:30pm   


Thursdays from 6-8pm

Patients can check in from 4-6pm


Wednesday  9:30am - 4pm

Thursday  8:30am - 5pm

**Extraction clinics are held by volunteer dentists and support staff several times each month.  Please call our dental coordinator for appointments.  (330-262-2500, ext. 111)


For added patient convenience, lab visits are now done by appointment throughout the week.  Please call our Patient Care Coordinators to schedule your labwork. (330-262-2500, ext. 100) 


To decrease patients wait times and ensure medication availability, patients are required to call their medication refills in ahead of time.  Please call us at 330-262-2500 (extension 114) and leave us your name, date of birth, phone number and a list of the medications you need refilled.  We'll have them ready for you after 2 business days.  Please note -- medications called in after hours or on the weekends will not be processed until the following business day, and will require 2 more days after that to be filled.  For example, medications called in on Saturday or Sunday will not be available for pick up until Wednesday.

Pick up hours for medications that have been called in ahead of time are as follows:

MONDAY: 10-11:30am & 1-3:30pm 

TUESDAY: 9-11:30am & 2-3:30pm

WEDNESDAY: 9-11:30am & 1-3:30pm

THURSDAY: 9-11:30am & 1-3:30pm 

FRIDAY: 9-11:30am & 1-3:30pm

*Medications can also be picked up on a walk-in basis (no call ahead necessary) on Wednesday from 9-11:30am, and Thursday from 5-7:30pm.



If you wish to be established as a new patient or have not been to the clinic in over 1 year, you will need to meet with a Patient Care Coordinator to verify your eligibility and fill out required forms.  Please call us at 330-262-2500 to set up an appointment.  You cannot be seen by a provider or get any medications filled until after this appointment.

The third largest free clinic in Ohio and one of over 1,700 free clinics across the nation, the VSFC is open to patients five days a week, and is operated by staff members and a large team of over 350 community-minded volunteers with diverse backgrounds.  

In collaboration with physicians including the Medical Director, the CRNPs are qualified to assess patients, make diagnoses, prescribe medications, and arrange specialist referrals as needed.  Support for the CRNP positions is made possible by generous grants from several foundations.  The CRNPs, medical staff and volunteers work together to provide patients with necessary medications and education on their proper use, as well as laboratory services and additional offsite testing as needed.
