We are proud to be the ONLY free health care clinic in Monroe County
Founded in 2003 by Sandy Yankow, M.D., the Good Health Clinic's mission is to provide free medical care to needy residents of the Upper Keys, Monroe County, Florida. The Good Health Clinic (GHC) was initially limited to the provision of secondary and tertiary specialty medical care. The scope of practice grew to include primary care in 2007, enabling the delivery of complete healthcare to the growing population of uninsured residents of the community.
Dr. Yankow, having closed his private practice in 2006, became the provider of both general medical and gynecology care at the GHC. As a result of his willingness to serve the community post-retirement by attaining proficiency in primary care, along with the solid support of Baptist Healthcare South Florida and Mariner’s Hospital, the initial primary care recipient was seen in April of 2007.
Sacrificing personal health in order to pay rent or put food on the table is unthinkable. The passion and commitment of the GHC staff is to provide the highest quality healthcare to all patients without a time limit.
