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.”
A Health and Hope Clinic prayer partner would be pleased to pray for any special need you may be facing. Faith in the Lord provides a foundation of strength to face any situation. Your request is a sacred trust and is kept confidential. There is never a charge for this service.
The Clinic has one full-time employee (executive director), and two part-time employees. All others volunteer their time on behalf of the Clinic.
Our dedicated and capable Board of Directors sets policy and is ultimately responsible for the organization.

Health & Hope Clinic is able to sustain the needs of our community through partnerships with organizations like Americares, a non-profit disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization providing immediate response to emergency medical needs and supporting long-term health care initiatives for people in the United States and around the world.
The mission of the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics is to ensure the medically underserved have access to affordable health care. The NAFC and its members are dedicated to ensuring that their patients receive quality health care. To quantify and qualify the care provided at the Free and Charitable Clinic network, the NAFC formalized a set of Quality Standards for member organizations. NAFC Members voluntarily submit information to the NAFC on the various policies and procedures they have in place to attain their standards rating. Each organization attests/pledges that they successfully incorporate these standards within their organization.
