This is an inspiring story by a retired pediatrician living in Hilton Head who found that half the island's population had no health care beyond the hospital emergency room. He saw the large number of retired doctors, dentists, nurses and other health care providers as a unique resource to set up not just a free clinic but a clinic with both high ideals and high quality care. It took years to accomplish but since he shared the business plan and organizational skills with the public, the are now nearly 100 "Volunteers in Medicine" free clinics in the U.S. I am the medical director for one in Mifflinville, PA. We have ~2700 people with no insurance who look to us for health care.
