Who We Are

Our Mission

The Community Medical Clinic of Aiken County is dedicated to improving the quality of life of impoverished, uninsured residents and the working poor of Aiken County by providing ongoing healthcare and guidance in a professional setting.

Committed to Community Health Since 1998. Learn About Our Journey and Values.

The clinic was originally formed in 1998 by Area Churches Together Serving (ACTS) and was named the ACTS of Caring Clinic. After the clinic began operating under the direction of its own board of directors, the clinic changed its name to the Free Medical Clinic and practiced out of the nursing building at the University of South Carolina-Aiken. Then in 2007, the clinic moved to its current location at 244 Greenville Street NW and the name was changed to the Community Medical Clinic of Aiken County. The CMCAC is an United Way of Aiken County agency and a member of the South Carolina Free Clinic Association, a group created to support and assist each other in improving the quality and availability of health care to the medically underserved through the effective and efficient management of free medical clinics and expanding efforts to other South Carolina communities. Our Funding comes from:
  • United Way of Aiken County
  • Foundations
  • Local churches
  • Civic organization
  • Individual donations
  • Grants
  • Fundraisers
We are more than a band aid for our patients. We provide them hope and a hand up to help them get back on the path to better health. We believe that teamwork and inclusion are the heart of valuing diversity. We strive to make sure that all voices are heard. Our approach to treating our patients is a whole person approach. We tailor their healthcare plan to their individual needs and encourage their input to ensure that their culture and values are taken into consideration when addressing their health. This allows us to know how best that we can work together. Within the clinic, we feel that cultural diversity enriches the work environment and makes us stronger as a team.

Our Need

According to the South Carolina Institute of Medicine and Public Health, 16.8% of South Carolinian adults are uninsured. In Aiken County, that number is even higher, clocking in at 19% of adults under the age of 65.

It’s no secret that having health insurance increases access to critically important medical care, especially when it comes to preventive services that identify and prevent chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

But not everyone is fortunate enough to have access to affordable healthcare, even with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Though the ACA has made healthcare available to millions of Americans since its passage in 2010, there are income restrictions that prevent many patients from taking advantage of these affordable plans. Many of our patients who come to seek health care from us do not meet the income requirements to access health care through the ACA.
