C.A.R.E. Clinic is a free clinic serving uninsured and low-income residents of Goodhue County and Lake City, Minnesota.
Our mission is to improve the clinical overall health of the Community by providing health care Access, connecting Resources and promoting health Education to uninsured individuals who are unable to afford healthcare.
