Providing quality healthcare to low income, uninsured patients.
Matthews Free Medical Clinic (MFMC) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 corp. that provides free, quality healthcare to low income, uninsured patients in Mecklenburg and Union Counties. MFMC is not a walk in clinic. In order to verify the residential and financial requirements are met, patients must go through a new patient screening prior to receiving a primary care provider and other specialty, ancillary and educational services provided by the clinic. Patients must live in Mecklenburg or Union County for at least three months, be at or below 200% of the FPL for their household size and be completely uninsured.
MFMC primarily relies on medical and non-medical volunteers to carry out our mission. We currently have more than 30 volunteer providers, which allow us to provide acute and chronic primary care, gynecology, cardiology and pulmonology related services, orthopedic, chiropractic and acupuncture services, physical therapy, behavior health services, nutrition counseling, smoking cessation, educational sessions and much more.
Our non-medical volunteers help provide front desk services, screening, admin and special project support. We could not provide the same high level, quality care provided without our amazing volunteers!
MFMC is a nonprofit organization funded by grants, private donations and two annual fundraisers. We do not receive Federal, State or County funding.
Please note, we are not a walk in clinic. Please click the Patients tab to obtain a new patient application. Additional details are available by calling 704-841-8882 ext 100.
