CARE Clinic is an integrated safety net clinic that exists to improve access to affordable health care for low-income residents of Goodhue County. The goal of CARE Clinic’s VISTA project is to improve access to dental care. Our dental clinic provides restorative, preventative, and urgent dental care to residents who otherwise would not have local access to oral health care. The clinic accepts state subsidized insurances or charges a nominal fee for uninsured patients. CARE Clinic ensures that no patient is turned away due to inability to pay. C.A.R.E.

In addition to the dental clinic, an integrated clinic continues to operate weekly, providing medical, dental, mental health care, MNsure assistance resource connection, telehealth, COVID-19 testing and vaccination.
