Our Mission

San Bernardino Free Clinic (SBFC) is a student-run clinic that offers free services to the San Bernardino community as well as the Inland Empire. In partnership with Well-One Health and UC Riverside School of Medicine, we provide much-needed medical assistance to those who lack access to proper medical care and address the health disparities of the San Bernardino County.

Our Community

San Bernardino County is the largest county in the United States, with a population of two million living in diverse geographic and civic environments. The county ranks 50th out of 56 California counties in health factors. The health problems facing this region make it imperative that we give priority to the health needs of our community.

Our Mission

To use a holistic and sustainable approach to address the health disparities of the San Bernardino County and to provide much-needed medical assistance to people who lack or are unable proper medical care. With this, SBFC seeks to improve some of the more common health problems in San Bernardino and will intervene to challenge health disparities and chronic diseases.

Our Vision

Integration of a variety of healthcare specialties as well as taking a holistic approach of healthcare to serve medically disadvantaged populations. Educate and empower our patients and community members to ensure sustainability and the clinic’s long-term success. It is our hope to continue to grow and provide quality care to our underserved community for many more years to come.
