What was once a storage facility on the Islamic Center of Cleveland campus in Parma has been transformed into a new free health clinic for all.

Quietly open now for the past couple weeks, the Cleveland Ibn Sina Clinic was developed by the Northeast Ohio Muslim community to provide health services for any person who is uninsured or underinsured.

"Healthcare is not a privilege for some, it is a fundamental human right,’ is not just a slogan but the very foundation of our mission,” Dr. Mansoor Ahmed, Medical Director of CISC, said in a statement. He is joined by more than 20 local physicians who have signed on to volunteer their time at the clinic.

“There are far too many people in our communities who do not have the medical coverage they need and are reluctant to seek the medical care that they need," Ahmed said. "This must change and by joining the ranks of the Ohio Association of Free Clinics, we want to do our part to realize the dream of everyone having the same healthcare services offered to them, as any other human being.”

The clinic (6055 W. 130th St.) is officially hosting its grand opening Wed., March 27 at 5 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house where people can tour the clinic and mosque. After that, the clinic will be open on weekends from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., taking walk-ins and appointments alike.

Call 440-644-0581 to make an appointment or for more information.
