HISTORY, OVERVIEW AND MISSION
The Viola Startzman Clinic (VSC) is the largest free clinic in Ohio and one of over 1,700 free clinics across the nation. Open in 1995 as Healthcare 2000 Community Clinic, the VSC provides health and dental care, medications, and laboratory testing at no charge to low-income (up to 200% of the federal household poverty level) Wayne County residents. The VSC serves both insured and uninsured individuals. All types of insurance are accepted, and no patient is turned away because of an inability to pay for care.
The VSC is open five days a week and is run by a dedicated team of both staff members and community-minded volunteers. The Mission of the VSC is: “The Viola Startzman Clinic serves, in an atmosphere of dignity and respect, lower-income residents of Wayne County.” This statement guides the actions of each VSC employee, volunteer, and trustee.
The VSC treats over 2,000 local individuals annually, representing nearly 10,000 patient visits. In addition, the VSC has a well-established referral system in place with over fifty local specialists who treat VSC patients at their facilities at low or no cost to the patient. The VSC makes over 1,000 such referral appointments on behalf of patients each year to medical specialists including cardiologists, gastroenterologists, and ophthalmologists, to name a few. We are grateful for these valuable connections in the medical community which allow us to provide patients with high-quality, comprehensive care.
The VSC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Funding is provided through the generosity of many individuals, organizations, churches, and foundations, as well as the United Way. A small amount of income comes from insurance reimbursement.
