Lucas Oil Stadium hosts free medical clinic until Wednesday

The four-day clinic offers many free health services, including radiology tests, mental health services, and even free haircuts.

INDIANAPOLIS — A mega medical clinic opened Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium and over the next four days the clinic will provide medical, dental and general wellness services — all free of charge.

The clinic is sponsored by Pathway to Health, a nonprofit organization that works with volunteers, donors, partners, and the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide free multi-specialty clinics. Clinics provide free medical, surgical, dental, eye, radiology, and other medical and non-medical services.

“We don’t require payment. We don’t need insurance. We don’t need ID,” said Julie Bryson, Pathway to Health’s chief medical officer.

Pathway to Health and its partners expect to treat approximately 6,000 patients during the clinic at Lucas Oil Stadium. It’s a colossal undertaking that was set in motion by more than 2,500 volunteers.

Due to the pandemic and other financial hardships, Bryson said the needs are great in the community. They hope to use the clinic to fill the gap.

“Some may not be living the most healthy lifestyle. I think it’s getting better, but we’re still going to be able to reach people who are in that situation,” Bryson said. “Maybe they haven’t had health care for a few years or maybe more. We hope, in that case, to lead them on the right path to get better.”

The clinic also focuses on general wellness with mental health services, chaplaincy, clothing, haircuts, legal services, minor procedures, massage, pediatrics and more.

“Most people, if they work, can have medical insurance. But a lot of people don’t have dental insurance,” said dental health speaker Lynelle Marcos.

Organizers said the clinic is a way to live out their faith and serve those in need.

“The important thing for us is to give back to the community,” said Ivan Golubic, president and CEO of Pathway to Health. “As a faith-based organization, we have our beliefs. But that doesn’t mean anything unless we act on them. We want to make sure we serve without prejudice to people’s beliefs, people’s values, or what their cultural background is.”

The clinic will be open until Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. There’s no need for insurance or ID, and the only service that requires pre-registration is dental work. More information on registration can be found online.
