Who We Serve

By providing free, high quality primary care to the uninsured and inadequately insured, we address the immediate basic needs of economically disadvantaged people in Maine.  Many of our patients work two, even three part-time positions in the fishing, agricultural, or hospitality industries.  Full time employment opportunities are limited as is comprehensive healthcare insurance. If an employer does offer insurance, it is often of the “catastrophic” type with unaffordable deductibles for primary care.

The Ellsworth Free Medical Clinic offers unique and much needed, vital services to Mainers.  The Clinic’s primary healthcare services address the immediate needs of economically disadvantaged people in the State of Maine.

Adults 18 and over are eligible, patients with no insurance or those with a high deductible

Counties served: Hancock, Penobscot, Washington, Waldo, Knox, Kennebec, Somerset, Cumberland, Lincoln.

 

 

While we do not provide urgent or walk-in care, we have a robust primary care focus. Our medical staff act as the first contact and principle point of continuing care for patients within the health care system and coordinates other specialist care the patient may need.

Our patients –

  • 965 patient visits (a 31% increase from 2022)

Our plan moving forward is to expand those Cognitive Behavioral Therapy services.
