About Caritas Clinics

Saint Vincent and Duchesne Clinics are doctors' offices for very low-income people who have no insurance and live in Leavenworth and Wyndotte Counties. Often called "safety-net" clinics, Saint Vincent and Duchesne Clinics provide the same services as most family doctors in a welcoming, compassionate environment. The difference is that our patients have no insurance, not even Medicaid or Medicare, and no way to pay for their care.

Saint Vincent Clinic in Leavenworth and Duchesne Clinic in Kansas City, Kansas comprise Caritas Clinic, Inc; affiliates of SCL Health now Intermountain Healthcare, an integrated, not-for-profit system. Caritas Clinics' mission is to, in the spirit of the Sisters of Charity, reveal God's healing love by improving the health of the individuals and communities we serve -- especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

Founded on the belief that health care is a basic human right, the clinics provide services to indigent patients, regardless of religious affiliation, with an emphasis on the values of compassion, respect of personal dignity, and a sensitivity to human suffering.
