The Westside Free Medical Clinic serves people 18 years and older who are unable to afford routine health care. Professional volunteers provide screenings, limited primary care and health-related education.
Health care providers are available on select Tuesday and Wednesday evenings at 5 p.m. Spanish interpreters are available. Please call for clinic dates.
Our patients are treated with respect, love and care by volunteer medical professionals. Pharmacy services are available to established clinic patients only. In addition, Westside is one of the only free clinics in central Arkansas that offers services specifically in Spanish to assist Arkansas’ growing Hispanic population.
The clinic frequently conducts prevention and awareness workshops to encourage patients to play an active role in their own health and well-being.
Westside Free Medical Clinic is the oldest free clinic in the Diocese of Little Rock. It was founded in 1970 and has adapted to changing health needs of the community. In 2002, a clinic for Spanish-speaking patients was established with bilingual professionals and interpreters.
