The mission of the Gloucester Mathews Care Clinic is to provide community-based care for the residents of Gloucester and Mathews Counties who lack health insurance, or enough income to pay for it, through the efforts of volunteers and paid professional and support staff and through contributions from members of the community who share our values and concern.



In 2016 the Clinic had 4,722 patient visits in the Medical Clinic; a value of $754,452 services rendered.  Starting this year the dental clinic was able to see people with Medicaid and saw 741 Gloucester Resident patients and 209 Mathews Resident patients; a combined value of $354,820 services rendered. In addition, the Clinic was able to fill 27,417 prescriptions; a value of $8,997,882.07.

1.) The Clinic is in the process of finishing the $2.5 Capital Campaign. The Clinic needs to raise $800,000 more to complete the Capital Campaign.
2.) Electronic health records system. 
3.) More donors willing to pledge to our Community Health Partnership.
4.) More churches willing to sponsor the Clinic.

The Gloucester-Mathews Free Clinic (aka Care Clinic) began serving patients on August 1, 1998. The Clinic was established as an out-reach project by a group of parishioners at the Abingdon Episcopal Church who were concerned about the number of working individuals in the counties of Gloucester and Mathews who were unable to afford either medical treatment and/or prescribed medications. Operating space was provided by the Riverside Health System which gave the Clinic access to a small building in Hayes, Virginia. The Clinic provided care for over 100 patients in its first year of operation and at the time it moved to a new facility in 2014, that number had grown to just under 2,000 patients.

CEO Statement
As the Executive Director of the Gloucester-Mathews Care Clinic, I am impressed by the 200 volunteers that assist us with this mission and the team of 25 dedicated staff members who all devote extra hours to the program. We consider it to be a privilege to be able to reach out to our neighbors to lend them a hand when they have been laid off, disabled or find that their small income has forced them to chose food and shelter over medical care. GMCC is the only free clinic serving Gloucester and Mathews where there is little employment opportunity,  with many citizens relying on seasonal employment.
We believe that every citizen has the right to basic health care. Our patients get quality care as we set goals and act as a partner in developing an effective treatment plan that often includes life style change.
We also believe in patient responsibility. Our patients sign an agreement and receive a full orientation on their need to keep appointments, pick up and take their prescriptions as prescribed and stay out of the emergency room unless it is medically urgent.
We offer scheduled tours of the clinic on Monday evening at 5:30 pm or tours can be scheduled at your convenience.
