RotaCare Pittsburg Free Medical Clinic at St. Vincent de Paul

St. Vincent de Paul’s Wellness Program addresses major health disparities in Contra Costa County by working to keep healthy and heal the most vulnerable and under-privileged in our community with dignity and respect.

Our Mission:

To bring free medical care for the relief of pain and suffering to those who have the most need and the least access to medical care.

St. Vincent de Paul of Contra Costa County works in partnership with RotaCare Bay Area, Inc.and more than 10 Rotary Clubs in the Bay Area to provide quality medical care to uninsured adults with acute or chronic medical conditions at no cost to the patient. We have provided about 6,800 MD visits and 1,000+ one-on-one RN visits for chronic medical conditions to approximately 3,000 uninsured patients since opening in 2011. 

In addition to the physician and nursing care provided on-site, our clinic gives patients vouchers to present to the City Center Pharmacy to receive the 1st 30 days of prescribed medication free. We also provide diabetes management and free cooking classes starting every other month.

The RotaCare Pittsburg Free Medical Clinic at St. Vincent de Paul provides our patients comprehensive assistance. With more than 86 percent of patients living at or below the federal poverty level, we try to connect patients in need with resources in the community.

With fully volunteer medical and non-medical assistance from physicians, nurses, translators, social workers, and other professionals, the clinic relies heavily on financial support from the community. We invite you to support our mission to the serve our neighbors in need of urgent medical care with a tax-deductible donation.  All you need to do is indicate that your donation is for “Health and Wellness.” We appreciate your support!
