AmeriCares and Boehringer Ingelheim Open New, Expanded Free Clinic to Help Families Hit Hardest by Economic Hardship

ds meet, the newly unemployed and many others," said Karen Gottlieb, Executive Director, AmeriCares Free Clinics. "With increasing demand, this new facility couldn't open at a better time and should be upheld as an example of the tremendous benefit of communities working together to provide for those most in need."

Providing Essential Healthcare to Thousands of People in Need

Since opening in 1997, the AmeriCares Free Clinic of Danbury has delivered $12 million worth of medical services to more than 6,500 patients. Today, the clinic has more than 3,500 patient visits annually, making it AmeriCares' busiest clinic. The larger facility will enable the clinic to serve more patients. Currently, there are three AmeriCares Free Clinics in Connecticut, operating in Norwalk, Bridgeport and Danbury.

"I probably wouldn't be alive today if it wasn't for the clinic. I am uninsured, and yet I have a primary care doctor, a urologist, an oncologist, a radiologist and even a pulmonologist at one of the top hospitals in the country," explained a patient at the Danbury clinic. "I never could have afforded this kind of treatment on my own. I have never seen such dedication or kindness at a medical facility."

An Ongoing Commitment to Patients and Families

In addition to providing the funds to make the new Boehringer Ingelheim AmeriCares Free Clinic possible, Boehringer Ingelheim also funds the Boehringer Ingelheim AmeriCares' mobile outreach program to increase access to healthcare in Danbury and surrounding communities. In addition, Boehringer Ingelheim has supported AmeriCares international programs.

The company provides free medication to the clinic and provides volunteer support, including a Boehringer Ingelheim physician who sees clinic patients on an ongoing basis.
