Smith Medical Clinic was established in 1985 by Dr. Cathcart Smith and his wife, Nancy, in an 8-foot wide trailer with office and medical equipment from Dr. Smith's former medical office. Initially, Dr. Smith recruited five retired doctors and a dozen nurses to volunteer at the clinic. This volunteer model has become a Smith Clinic tradition. Today, over 200 volunteers working in two locations provide complete medical care for over 2,000 low-income, uninsured, Georgetown County residents a year-for less than $250 per patient per year!
Volunteers are always needed in all areas. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are excited to have you join our team! All skills needed. Special projects available.
Refer a Patient!
Don't let people go without care. If you know someone who lives in Georgetown County, doesn't have medical insurance and their household income falls below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, please tell them about us.
Donors are delighted to learn that we provide complete medical care for less than $250 per patient per year. Patient Partners annual giving program was established to allow donors a closer connection to care by "sponsoring" a patient or family with a gift of $250 or more. Patient Partners is the foundation for the clinic's continuing ability to provide medical care for our vulnerable neighbors.
