Since the Clinic opened, there has been an ever-present, albeit dynamic, need for its services as social conditions have undergone shifts and changes. It has become something of an icon in the area, and has served thousands in a variety of ways during its 50-year history. Its founding principles and structures survive to this day:

Health care is a basic human right and should not be linked to profit.

A great deal of health care knowledge can and should be available and accessible to individuals such that they can have the power to recognize and respond to their own health issues.

Health care should be broadly defined and considerate of the whole being and environment, not simply a response to isolated symptoms.

In keeping with the goals of individual empowerment and the building of healthy communities, locally-based organizations should enable worker participation and responsibility.
