History

St. Vincent de Paul long recognized the need for medical and dental services and has sponsored a clinic since 1977, initially serving primarily patients who are homeless. In 1994, the clinic was restructured and relocated to its current location when the focus shifted to the uninsured and working-poor. 

Supported by hundreds of volunteers, it has evolved into a comprehensive health center providing thousands of visits annually. We consider ourselves a “transition” clinic as our intention is to serve as a bridge for people without healthcare as they obtain a long-term medical home. Not only do we help get all of their acute and chronic health problems controlled we will make sure their preventative care is up to date and will actively assist patients in finding appropriate healthcare resources for their socio-economic situation.  

As the clinic has evolved, we have been able to offer more services to our patients and the healthcare community. We currently meet most of the practicing requirements to be a patient-centered medical home and a federally qualified health care center, although we do not bill for any services. We have become a teaching institution as we have agreements with ASU pre-health solutions, AT Still University School of Osteopathic Medicine, Midwestern Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine, Creighton University School of Medicine, University of Arizona College of Medicine, Mayo College of Medicine, as well as over a dozen primary and specialty based residency programs in the Valley.
