Who is eligible to receive services at the SNHC?

We serve uninsured, adult patients. In addition, we cannot provide vaccinations to patients referred to us by employment agencies. If you have insurance, see our resources page for clinics providing services for a reduced fee based on your ability to pay.

Am I expected to pay anything toward the cost of my visit?

Your visit to SNHC is free. If the physician prescribes you any medications, we work hard to keep the cost of the medication low or free of charge. If we cannot provide you with a particular service, we will refer you to another health center that offers that service at a reduced cost based on your ability to pay.

Do I need to make an appointment?

Appointments are not required, but we cannot guarantee that you will be seen if you do not make an appointments. Walk-in patients are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis, and we cannot see more than 9 patients each Saturday due to limited staff.

To make an appointment, call 314-275-0657.

Who will see me at the clinic?

The clinic is staffed by Washington University physicians and medical students. Nurses from the Family Care Health Center assist with lab tests and vaccinations.

What can I expect from a typical visit?

When you arrive, let the receptionist you are there for the Saturday Neighborhood Health Clinic. Patients will be seen in the order that they arrive, so please be prepared to wait. When the medical team is ready to see you, you will first be seen by two medical students. These student doctors will ask you questions about your health and about what brought you into the clinic. They will then perform a physical exam based on your symptoms. The student doctors will report this information to the physician. The physician may also perform parts of the physical exam. If you need any laboratory tests, they will be performed at this time. The student doctors and the physician will talk to you about their findings and discuss potential treatments. You will then be discharged home with any necessary prescriptions and a referral for a local primary care provider.

How many times can I visit the clinic?

The primary goal of the SNHC is to guide our patient through the process of finding a long-term primary care home. However, we recognize that there may be constraints on our patients preventing them from receiving care elsewhere, so you can visit the clinic as needed while you do not have insurance. We will assist all patients in finding and making an appointment at a local Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).
