Lancaster’s free health clinics provide a full array of primary health care to community members who may otherwise fall through the cracks. In support, Lancaster General Health has collaborated with Water Street Health Services since 1994 and Hope Within Ministries since 2008, providing services such as medications, immunizations, lab work and health screenings.

Last year alone these clinics provided care for more than 2,450 local residents.
