Executive Director of the Westminster Free Clinic, Lisa Safaeinili, speaks with Our Ventura TV host, George Alger, about the health and wellness services of this community clinic in Ventura County.
The Westminster Free Clinic is a private, non-profit community care center in East Ventura County, serving the working poor and uninsured in Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Westlake Village, Simi Valley, Moorpark, Camarillo, and Oak Park. We also serve as a training site for high school students considering careers in healthcare.
The Westminster Free Clinic is 100% free and serves as a safety-net for those with no other affordable options.
The goal of the Westminster Free Clinic is to provide low-income people with early access to healthcare, and health supporting programs and services, in order to prevent more costly mental and physical health problems.
The clinic is first-come, first-serve, providing access to health care to over 100 patients on Wednesday nights from 4:00pm – 10:30pm.
The Westminster Free Clinic does not take patients with medi-cal, medicare, or other insurance programs.
The clinic provides free medical services, free health and wellness services as well as their unique “Our Teen Healthcare Pathways Internship Program,” which has four key components:
1. Health Careers & Medical Skills Training
2. Youth Leadership Development
3. Wellness Programs & Education
4. Academic Enrichment & College and Careers Counseling
The Westminster Free Clinic supports the whole person to reduce stress and to benefit the overall health of their patients.
