As a free medical clinic serving uninsured and underinsured low income individuals in Addison County, the Open Door Clinic provides essential medical care to individuals of many backgrounds. Approximately 30% of their patients are Limited English Proficiency (LEP) patients requiring assistance of medical interpreters to facilitate communication and thus insure high quality medical care. Although they have access to telephonic interpretation, they rely most heavily on volunteer medical interpreters available for in-person interpretation at clinics and referral appointments. The Open Door Clinic is located close to campus at Porter Hospital!
