The Free Medical Clinic is an essential service to the community. The Public helth Department relies on the services of the FMC to fulfill its mission to assure access to care. FMC stands as a symbol to the generoristy and commitment of the community to ensure care for everyone. On behalf of the Board of Health and Johnson County Public Health, THANK YOU to all the staff, volunteers and supporters.

The Iowa City FMC is the premier health services site for uninsured or under-insured patients in Johnson County. Patients are treated with dignity and respect, and examiners work with patients to develop treatment plans. As a volunteer, I know my time is always put to good use, from explaining medical documents to patients, to interpreting for non-English speaking patients during a visit, to helping patients schedule follow-up appointments. The ICFMC staff makes the clinic a fun and welcoming place to volunteer, and I always look forward to being there!

I've noticed the results from care at the FMC in patients when they talk about their medical history before visiting the Iowa City FMC as compared to after. Often, a patient has no records of their previous medical care, but patients know any treatment they have received since being in the care of ICFMC is carefully maintained in our records. I see many patients who are very invested in staying healthy; having all their medical records in order is a tremendous benefit for both patient and provider.

The ICFMC does a great job of offering medical and dental services to those in the community who may not be able to get care otherwise. There are both acute and chronic care outpatient clinics available. They are welcoming to all persons and the staff and volunteers offer excellent care and compassion. The clinic offers a great service to the community!

The ICFMC offers health and dental services to those who would otherwise go without. Services range from testing and health screening to cronic illness' such as hypertension and diabetes. No one is turned away. Until health care becomes a right instead of a privilege, the ICFMC will continue to take care of those that do not have the means to take care of themselves. A great organization and wonderful staff!

It is the patient stories that really hit home for me. Being able to make a positive difference in someone's life; ensuring they do not go without adequate health care.

Better funding for non-profits. Funding is limited. Non-profits have to essentially compete against each other for grants, donations, etc. There have been a lot of cuts in spending that have had a negative impact on non-profit organizations.

The Iowa City Free Medical Clinic provides support and health care for those who are unable to receive care due to limiting factors such as scheduling and expenses. Everyone who visits the clinic is equally welcomed and treated with respect. The volunteers who offer their time and services are always happy to be there.

The Free Medical Clinic makes a significant contribution to the community by providing necessary medical care to those who would not otherwise be able to access it. As a new member to the Board of Directors, each month I learn of a "service story" that details quality medical care given to a patient, the benefits to the patient and the reduction of costs to the medical community via diverted utilization of the emergency room for care. The staff and Co-Directors truly care about the well being of all people.

I have not personally utilized the services of the FMC but have toured the clinic and have discussed what is available with staff and Directors. Area clinicians and dentists find value in donating their time to work in a variety of the clinics offered. This speaks volumes for the reputation of the FMC.

As a volunteer at the Iowa City Free Medical Clinic I've been given the opportunity to interact with the staff and patients who present to the clinic. The staff working the clinic are extremely welcoming to all patients. Patient privacy is respected by workers and volunteers alike. Patients are told honestly what they can expect from the clinic (treatment, care, help finding insurance). The clinic offers a variety of services for both acute and chronic health problems. Different services (ex. dermatology, physical therapy) are available at certain times throughout the month.
