St. Joseph's Medical Clinic Providing Compassionate Care For People In Need For Over 35 Years.

St. Joseph's Medical Clinic opened in 1977 and is one of approximately 1,200 Free and Charitable Clinics throughout the country, since the 1960's, that have been filling the gap for those who "fall through the cracks" in our broken health care system. Free and Charitable Clinics will remain an important part of the country's safety net, even after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Our clinics receive little to no state or federal funding and therefore we rely heavily on the generosity of individual donors, foundations and grants as sources of funding.

Compassionate, Responsive and Creative

Jessica-OsenbruggeThe need continues to provide health care to the uninsured and low-income residents of Waukesha County. For 38 years, St. Joseph's Medical Clinic, Inc. continues to provide a "safety net" to meet the medical care needs of families and individuals who are struggling to afford their healthcare costs. The clinic is expanding the ability to serve patients by raising the eligibility level to 250% of poverty level. The Board of Directors recognizes that food, childcare, gas and housing costs continue to rise thereby creating challenges for community residents to meet all of their basic necessities including visits with the doctor and medications.

Additionally, the clinic is responding to the continued need by creating a new leadership structure that will support expanding the clinic's primary care services. In January, the Board of Directors approved an operational enhancement in moving the clinic's mission forward by bringing on a new Executive Director and creating a Clinic Manager position.

Jessica Osenbrügge is appointed Executive Director of St. Joseph's Medical Clinic effective June 1, 2015. Jessica brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the clinic. She has served in a variety of positions at the Dr. James E. Albrecht Free Clinic in West Bend, WI, including as Business Operations Coordinator. She participated in the community's Latino Health Outreach Project Steering Team through Casa Guadalupe Education Center, Inc. Since 2014, Jessica has been serving as Vice President of the Wisconsin Association of Free and Charitable Clinic, a state-wide non-profit organization with a mission to support and strengthen the state's 70+ free clinics.
