One of the best medicines for people recovering from illness or injury is the ability to rest in a safe and comfortable environment.

 Medical Clinic was founded in 1976 as an outreach of Sacred Heart Medical Center and once found its home in small quarters at the HOC. In 2017, the clinic moved into a new facility just one block from the shelter. It offers longer hours and now has the capacity to care for more unserved patients than ever before.
