The Key Free Clinic provides free medical care to people who cannot afford or reach health care.
The Key Free Clinic first opened its doors on January 20th, 2013, at Key Peninsula Community Services in Lakebay. Originally scheduled to operate once each month, by March, the clinic had increased its capacity to serve the community twice monthly. By December 2013, the clinic had provided medical care to 132 patients from 11 unique postal codes. Eighteen different medical providers had volunteered their services, along with case managers, nurses, and nursing students from Pacific Lutheran University. With the support of St. Anthony Hospital, Project Access, Chapel Hill Presbyterian Church, Multicare Health System, and other community organizations, the Key Free Clinic has continued to expand its capacity. In December, 2013, the clinic relocated to the Key Peninsula Health Center in Key Center, a strategic site for effectively serving larger numbers of residents who lack
access to health care.
