CMC is embarking on its 21st year as a charitable family practice medical clinic. It was founded on the mission of providing medical care to the uninsured residents of Kershaw County. CMC has grown from seeing several patients a week in one room to having a fully staffed medical facility as well as mobile clinics. Today, CMC has expanded its mission and is leading a collaborative effort to empower individuals to take charge of their own health and well-being.
Community support of CMC has allowed the organization to provide medical care for our neighbors who are underserved or uninsured. Today CMC plays an increasingly broad role as the leader of a collaborative effort to improve population health throughout the county. The clinic itself serves as the medical home to 800 county residents, resulting in some 3,600 patient visits annually.
