The Summit Community Care Clinic ("Care Clinic") was established in 1993 as a one-night-a-week walk-in clinic staffed entirely by volunteers and managed by Summit County Public Health. Care Clinic was founded to address the need for primary and preventative health care for people who are uninsured and have low incomes. Over time, Care Clinic has expanded and now provides primary and preventative health care, behavioral health and oral health, regardless of a patient's ability to pay. In 2004, Care Clinic obtained 501(c) 3 status and in 2006, moved into the Medical Office Building located next to the hospital in Frisco. In 2015, Care Clinic received a new designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center. Care Clinic provides integrated care Monday-Friday from 8-5 pm.
SCCC currently has a full Medical, Dental and Behavioral Health Clinic in Frisco as well as six School Based Health Centers serving Summit, Lake and Park County.
