Originally formed as New Springs Community Clinic, PAX Community Health was founded by Dr. Laura Voss in connection with New Springs Community Church. A Free Medical Clinic had been a dream of Dr. Laura for many years and has now come true with the help of many people, Hospitals and Organizations.
PAX Community Health is a totally FREE clinic serving the basic medical needs of the community around it.
Reminder: We offer free sports and camp physicals!

Q. What made you want to start a free clinic?
A. I saw a need for not only those without insurance but for those with high deductible plans needing help with basic primary care. For many just seeing the doctor and getting labs costs too much for their budget but they may only need a 4$ med from the pharmacy.
Q. What do you like to do in your spare time?
A. Travel , hiking , gardening and scrapbooking
Q. What would you say to those considering volunteering?
A. Volunteering for a free clinic is rewarding in so many ways. It’s great to help others, but it is also fun to work in a clinic without all the paperwork hassles. Our doctors and nurses feel like this is what they were trained to do. They get frustrated with insurance companies and other administrative burdens.
Q. Tell us something interesting we might not know.
A. I have a 3 legged pet goat named Lily.
