                              C.A.R.E. Clinic - 350 x 180

    C.A.R.E. stands for “Community Access Rehabilitation for Everyone”. We are a student run pro-bono physical therapy clinic for under-served individuals in the rural community. Students in the physical therapy graduate program at Saint Francis University, along with  guidance from  professors of physical therapy, work as a team to provide individualized care for each patient.  

    Mission  

    The C.A.R.E. Clinic intends to provide free, high quality, patient-specific rehabilitative care to all members of the community that do not have reasonable access to other services.  

    Our Vision

     The C.A.R.E. Clinic is a student run rehabilitation clinic that incorporates a multi-disciplinary approach toward serving underinsured individuals from the surrounding area. The clinic will emulate the Franciscan mission and goals while providing students the opportunity to enhance their skills as practioners, managers, and leaders in their community. 

    Who Qualifies?

    The C.A.R.E. Clinic is open to patients who are either uninsured or underinsured. Individuals who do not have physical therapy benefits or those who have exhausted their number of visits for the calendar year may also be eligible. Patients must fall below an income threshold to qualify for services at the clinic. Call today to see if you qualify for free physical therapy!
