Sinclair Health Clinic is located on the Kendall Community Campus of Our Health, where several other non-profits are housed. Health and human services are nearby. Patients of Sinclair Health Clinic can inquire about the services at these organizations located on the campus:
In addition to these organizations, we connect with several other nonprofits in our community:
The Sinclair Health Clinic is recognized by local and state partnerships. Our history and commitment to our community builds bridges with organizations who believe in offering the gift of health to those in need.
We are grateful for these Partners in Access to Care:
We treat patients who otherwise would visit the emergency room of Valley Health’s Winchester Medical Center. In turn, we reach out to Valley Health for educational programs, financial support and as a public forum. They help open doors, provide support staffing and give us access to a wealth of medical expertise and information.
In addition to campus space, Our Health encourages nonprofits to collaborate on the needs of our community. Offering grant opportunities and volunteer support, Our Health connects several organizations; a patient of Free Medical Clinic has access to many other services.
The Free Medical Clinic benefits from a close partnership with Shenandoah University’s health professions programs, including its Eleanor Wade Custer School of Nursing, and Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy. Shenandoah University students gain hands-on experience through volunteering at the Clinic, meet their clinical or service learning requirements, and learn research skills by conducting patient outcomes studies.
