WHEELING, W.Va. -- 

Wheeling Jesuit University's Free Care Clinic has been operating for about 4 years, but now, there's a new place where you can go for help instead of on campus.

 

A new, easily accessible location is now up and running at Stone Center along Market Street in downtown Wheeling.

 

"We can maintain privacy, a patients dignity and really provide them with the service they deserve, so personally, I’m thrilled. I couldn't be more excited to have our patients be able to come here," said Carrie Abraham, a clinical associate professor.

 

Abraham said they have much more space and can do just about anything a normal clinic can.

 

"We have the basics. We have the exam tables, the treatment rooms, we have our hands which are our largest instrument and right now we have the space to be able to do what we need to do. So we are looking to fill it up," she said.

 

If you're uninsured or have limited coverage, there is no need to worry. The program is free.

 

"It is very helpful. I don't know what I’d do without Carrie and the students because they really do me wonders," said patient Mary Ann Gala.

 

Not only is it a win for patients, but for the students too, taking them outside of the classroom.

 

"It's giving me hands on experience to make me use my knowledge instead of just writing it down on tests and stuff," said Shelby Zelinski, a first-year physical therapy student.

 

The clinic is open on Wednesdays from 9a-12p and on Fridays from 1p-4p. If you're interested in participating, you can contact the clinic by calling them at 304-243-7201.
