SERVICES Holy Cross Clinic

In 1982, the Sisters of the Holy Cross and Saint Agnes Medical Center saw the need and joined together to create the Holy Cross Clinic Holy Cross Clinic at Poverello House at Poverello House. The Clinic provides free medical and dental services to the poor and homeless of our community. The only eligibility requirement is that patients don’t have medical insurance and pick up a ticket from Poverello House at 11:00 AM Monday through Friday. The Clinic staff includes a full-time Nurse Practitioner. The rest of the medical team is made up of dedicated Saint Agnes staff and volunteers who donate their time to fill this crucial need in the community.

Last year there were nearly 5,500 medical exams and 1,000 dental visits at the Holy Cross Clinic. The Clinic is open Monday through Friday from 1-5 p.m. and when other specialty medical and dental services are available. Those who volunteer include: physicians, dentists, nurses, physical therapists, hygienists, translators, clerical personnel, nursing students, pre-med students and medical assistants.
