Established in 1972, the Lake Superior Community Health Center has grown from a one night per week "free clinic" into two full-time health care clinical sites providing comprehensive primary care. The Center's mission is to improve access, particularly financial access, to primary health care through the provision of clinical care, health education, screening, assisted referrals and advocacy.
