MEND Free Clinics in Pitt County
Through MEND, local medical professionals, medical students, and other volunteers staff three free clinics that together offer several weekly opportunities for uninsured patients from not only Pitt County, but also Greene and Beaufort counties as well.
If residents from other than those three counties come to one of the Pitt County free clinics, MEND case-management will attempt to link those people to free or reduced-fee clinics in their own area.
The three Pitt County free clinics are located in different parts of Greenville, affording patients better opportunities for access.
Originally known as the Greenville Community Shelters Clinic, this free clinic is run by ECU BSOM students and volunteer physicians, and is open to any member of the public. Appointments are not taken; service is entirely walk-in, on a first-come, first-served basis. Typically eight-10 patients are able to be seen per open hours per day.
Hours: A General Clinic is held every Monday, and a Women & Children's Clinic every other Thursday, each from 6:45-8:30 p.m.; see posted schedule for actual days. The clinic is closed on holidays.
Location: 207 Manhattan Ave., Greenville.
Staffed by volunteer community medical providers and nurses, the clinic offers wellness checkups and referrals for additional services. Periodically, eye exams, sports physicals for athletic participation, and other exams may also be performed. Spanish interpreters are available.
Hours: Every second Sunday of the month, from 1-3:30 p.m., and every fourth Tuesday of the month, from 6-7:30 p.m.
Location: The Branches, 1400 Red Banks Road, Greenville.
