Welcome to Water Street Health Services:

Medical Clinic

Water Street Health Services is a free medical clinic designed for local men and women without health care. Our medical staff are here to help you meet your medical needs and offer everything you’d find at your local doctor’s office. We will help you take all the steps you need to get your health back on track, from regular check-ups, to free medication for uninsured patients and even onsite lab testing. We love to meet you and help you live your healthiest life!

Our Approach to Medical Care

More than anything we aim to be a relational, top-notch medical facility that puts the individual patient first. That means giving you as much time as you need with a doctor. It’s important to us that you feel comfortable and take plenty of time to discuss your medical history with a doctor so we can best support you.

Our aim is that each patient feels fully cared for, and is treated as an individual. We never want you to feel like just another number or just another patient, but really a part of our Water Street community.

Can Anyone Go To the Free Health Clinic?

Members of the community with low to no income, who are Lancaster county residents, and have no medical insurance are eligible to receive medical services at Water Street Health Services. Eligibility means you must be 200% or more below the poverty line.

Additionally, guests of Water Street Mission (either staying in Providence Emergency Shelter, or our Residential program) will be eligible for medical services if they have low to no income, and are not connected to a primary care physician.
