Our Mission

The WCCC is a student-run clinic based at Weill Cornell Medical College that provides high-quality, accessible and coordinated medical, psychiatric and women’s services to uninsured adults throughout New York City. Our goal is to extend healthcare access to underserved populations, while also encouraging the spirit of volunteerism and philanthropy among our students, faculty, and staff.

We provide our patients with preventive care, age-appropriate screening, and referrals to specialty and mental health services. All of these are provided at low or no cost to our patients, who make less than 400% of the federal poverty limit. We also provide insurance and social work screening to ensure that all patient needs are met.

We currently hold our medicine clinic once a week and psychiatry and women’s health clinics every 3 to 4 weeks. Last year we had approximately 400 patient visits to the WCCC. In the coming year, we hope both to increase the number of patients we serve and to continue expanding the number of services we can provide to our patients. In order to meet these goals, however, we must raise more funds.

Our annual operating costs are approximately $250,000. While most of these are covered by in-kind donations – time donated by our wonderful physician volunteers, clinic space loaned to us by Cornell Internal Medicine Associates, and negotiated rates for in-network referrals – our effective annual operating costs are upwards of $50,000.

In 2013, we hope to reach more patients by doubling the number of clinic nights offered each year. In order to achieve this goal, we need your help and support. We hope that, like us, you believe that all people deserve access to healthcare, that a person’s income should not determine the quality of their health, and that no one should have to wait to go to the doctor because they are unable to pay.
