History of the Clinic

It all started with a hand shake. In May 2001, the Dr. Richard F. Clark H.E.L.P. Medical Clinic opened its doors.  Dr. Richard Clark, a local pathologist, saw the need for a medical clinic to serve the uninsured in our community.

Through his relationships at Sentara, the clinic first opened for services at the Hampton Health Department.  The Health Department allowed the HELP Clinic to open two evenings per week.  The Steering Committee continued to recruit local physicians to volunteer at the clinic as well as nurses and nurse practitioners.  Over these past ten years invaluable partnerships have been formed and maintained in support of the clinic and the patients we serve. The clinic is also a member of the Virginia Association of Free & Charitable Clinics and receives state budgeted funds because of our membership. The clinic is home to over 250 patients and in just one year provided over $400,000 in medical services and medication to those patients.  Thank you Dr. Clark and the H.E.L.P. Clinic Steering Committee for making this ministry a reality for the thousands of patients served since 2001.
