About Us


Providing Hope and Healthcare for the Uninsured

The Clinic was founded in 2003 by the Pensacola Bay Baptist Association to meet the needs of the uninsured and medically underserved in Escambia County, Florida. It was originally planned as a dental clinic, but with dental services and equipment extremely expensive, a medical clinic was more realistic with available funding. In the early days, there were more volunteers than patients.

Today, hundreds of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and volunteers help provide free health care to the medically underserved of our community. One full-time and two part-time employees are paid out of Clinic funds. All others volunteer their time on behalf of the Clinic. A Board of Directors sets policy and is ultimately responsible for the organization.

Since 2003, Health and Hope Clinic has provided over $15,000,000 in healthcare services and 18,000 patient/provider visits. Our goal is to provide accessible and equitable primary and preventative care to those in need. At Health and Hope Clinic, we rely on the generosity of our contributors and volunteers to accomplish our mission of “providing health and hope to the hurting.”
