Clinic Details:Public Health has had a presence in southernmost Illinois for over 50 years. Minutes from meetings which are on file at our administrative office indicate that as far back as the early 1930's, personnel from the State of Illinois were working with local communities to provide the basic public health services we often take for granted such as safe drinking water, controlling communicable diseases (in those days it was tuberculosis and polio), and helping women have healthy babies. When we are doing our job, it's easy to forget why public health is so important, but next time you drink a glass of water or eat in a restaurant, remember how our job is protecting your health. The seven counties served by Southern Seven Health Department, including Alexander, Hardin, Johnson, Massac, Pope, Pulaski, and Union, cover 2003 square miles, which is slightly larger than the state of Delaware. We cover more geographic area than any other health department in the State of Illinois. According to the 2010 census, there were 69,008 people living in the seven counties.

Details: The Clinic was established in 1993 through the efforts of our local medical society, hospitals, businesses and religious organizations in order to address a growing need for medical services for those who fell through the cracks of the local healthcare delivery system. In the early 1990s, local hospital leaders saw people repeatedly visiting the emergency departments for complications of chronic diseases and illnesses because they could not afford office visits and medications and had no insurance coverage. They pulled together a group of community visionaries who believed everyone deserved quality healthcare without the barrier of cost. After touring the Will-Grundy Medical Clinic in Joliet, IL, Dr. Robert Reardon, Sr. and the committee brought this free clinic model back to McLean County and they created the Community Health Care Clinic. The Clinic began as a 100% volunteer-run clinic and saw its first patient in March 1994.
