Welcome to Water Street Health Services

Free Women’s Health Clinic

Water Street Health Services offers a free women’s health clinic for qualified individuals in Lancaster. Our goal is to help local women have access important routine medical services.

For each patient, we want you to get the time with a doctor that you need. That’s why we have longer appointment times, so patients can explain their full health histories and not feel as rushed in finding solutions. We want you to feel comfortable at our clinic and get the important health services you personally need.

Can Anyone Go to The Women’s Health Clinic?

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

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.

Quality of 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.
