Opening of a free medical clinic serving uninsured adults in Lompoc | Local News

A free walk-in health clinic specializing in serving uninsured adults will officially open June 17 at 1111 E. Ocean Ave. in downtown Lompoc.

Savie Health, a volunteer-run nonprofit organization modeled after the SLO NOOR Foundation in San Luis Obispo County, will be made up of Lompoc-based doctors and nurses who volunteer their time, as well as a part-time executive director and a bilingual clinic director, according to an announcement.

“I understand the need in the community, based on the patients I see in my practice with no insurance and nowhere to go,” said Lompoc cardiologist Dr. Khawar Gul, who donates his time to Savie Health. .
