Judy Gough, Good Neighbor Free Medical Clinic of Beaufort director and CEO.

Good Neighbor Free Medical Clinic of Beaufort has been awarded a $6,000 grant from the Women in Philanthropy, a fund of Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. The grant will be used to expand the clinic’s co-pay assistance for women needing specialist medical services.

Staffed by more than 60 volunteers – physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, and administrative staff – the clinic offers primary health care at no cost to low-income, uninsured adults in Beaufort County. Services include physical exams, treatment for acute illness and management of chronic disease, non-surgical orthopedic and cardiology care, laboratory and other diagnostic testing through the generosity of Beaufort Memorial Hospital and specialist referrals. More than three-quarters of the Clinic’s patients do not qualify for any government health insurance and have no access to affordable care. 

Good Neighbor Free Medical Clinic of Beaufort is located at 30 Professional Village Circle on Lady’s Island. For additional information or to tour the clinic, contact Gough at gnmc1402@gmail.com.
