Free clinic opens in Germantown, MD
Washington Post, October 9, 2008
Hundreds of Montgomery County, MD, residents without health insurance will have access to free healthcare with the opening of the MobileMed Upcounty Care Clinic in Germantown. The 3,000-square-foot clinic will provide primary care to residents who are uninsured or otherwise cannot afford to pay for medical care. The services will be free or discounted, depending on each patient's ability to pay. The clinic is expected to serve more than 1,000 residents, and sits next to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital's Germantown Emergency Center. The clinic is a partnership involving the hospital, the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, and Mobile Medical Care, which through clinics and mobile medical vans provides primary and specialty healthcare to low-income, uninsured, and homeless Montgomery County residents.
