Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Volunteers in Medicine Clinic

Hilton Head Island, S.C.



The clinic, which serves about 22,000 patients annually, is the only health facility on the islands of Hilton Head and Daufuskie where underserved and uninsured people can receive free medical, dental and mental-health care. Grant funding, which will support the commission of a local artist to create and install site-specific public art on the clinic grounds, is part of the Health and Arts & Culture programs' Healing Spaces initiative, a pilot designed to create spaces that promote neighborhood health and well-being.
