The Medina Health Ministry is changing its name, but not its mission: To provide free health care to the working poor.

People too often misunderstood the name, Dr. Kim Bowen told the Medina Gazette. So this month they renamed the organization, which saw its first patient in 2004, to something everyone could figure out — Free Clinic of Medina County.

The clinic’s new executive director, Nancy Peacock, said the group is trying to tell more people it is there to help, the newspaper reported.

“One of the problems is that people don’t know the free clinic exists, so we are trying to reach out to companies and nonprofits that have people working for them but can’t provide benefits,” Peacock told the newspaper. “We are signing them up and giving immediate treatment for whatever needs they have.”

To get help at the clinic, you must be a Medina County resident, have a job and either have no health insurance or a high deductible, the newspaper said. People with incomes up to 250 percent of the federal poverty guideline qualify.
