About Cardinal Free Clinics
Cardinal Free Clinics was established in 2005 as a union of Arbor and Pacific Free Clinics. The clinics are owned and operated by the Stanford University School of Medicine. The mission of Cardinal Free Clinics is to provide culturally appropriate, high quality transitional medical care for an underserved patient population and to educate and empower a new generation of health care leaders to proactively address health disparities and improve access to care in their communities.
Arbor and Pacific Free Clinic staff is comprised of dedicated volunteer physicians and students. Funding is provided by private donors and the Stanford School of Medicine.
Arbor Free Clinic
Arbor Free Clinic was founded in 1990 as the result of a student's research proposal to establish a volunteer clinic that would address unmet health care needs in the Stanford vicinity. Arbor fills a critical local niche, providing acute care for underserved or uninsured patients whose alternative is often a hospital emergency room. In addition to acute care services, Arbor offers a broad array of on-site preventive health services and referrals to low-cost clinics for ongoing primary care. On-site medical interpretation services are offered in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.
