Heritage Community Clinic
Our vision is wellness for all
The Heritage College's Community Health Programs develop and deliver quality medical and health care services for children and adults throughout southeast Ohio. CHP offers a free medical clinic to adults, free women's health screenings, free immunizations to children who qualify, as well as low cost immunizations for adults. Our services are aimed at addressing unmet health care needs, and are often geared toward clients and patients who lack adequate medical and health care alternatives.
Community Health Programs support the mission of the Heritage College through:
- access to education and services to advance the health and well-being of underserved communities
- patient-centered programs that support the transformation of rural health care
- rural experiential learning opportunities for a diverse student population
In addition to dedicated staff members, our services are made possible through the generosity of the physicians, optometrists, students and other health care professionals who volunteer their time and expertise. We provide experiences in support of medical and health-related education programs at Ohio University. We also support and encourage those who are exploring careers in medicine and health care.
