Thanks to our incredible supporters and volunteers, Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic is poised to expand our facilities and serve the medical needs of hundreds more of our uninsured community members who live or work on Johns, James, and Wadmalaw Islands. More than ever, there is an urgent need to offer medical attention and healthcare stability to those who fall between the cracks.
Currently, we provide primary care to over 350 patients each month; we estimate that with our new, seven exam room facility, we will be able to accommodate more than 600 individuals per month at BIFMC. [View press release]
While construction begins this summer in our own backyard at 3226 Maybank Highway, our current medical facility will continue to operate as our medical home, offering the same, high quality primary care to our current patients. We anticipate our brand new, completed medical facility to open its doors in early Winter of 2017, with a grand opening celebration (date to be announced) that we hope you will join us to usher in a new era of commitment and care to our Barrier Islands neighbors and friends.

If you are interested in helping us to furnish and stock supplies for our new facility, we will be fundraising in the months to come to cover the costs of larger ticket items such as exam room tables and office furniture.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to grow – this building being a physical representation of the power of a community when it comes together with the mission to serve others. We hope that you will continue to be a presence for BIFMC at this exciting juncture in our history.
