BSP Free Clinic

doctor with patients

The BSP Free Clinic is dedicated to providing free quality specialty healthcare services to the uninsured and medically underserved in our community. Patients are referred to the BSP Free Clinic by healthcare providers from all over South Central Wisconsin.

Lack of access to primary care is only the first of many problems faced by the medically underserved. In the long run, lack of preventative and primary care can lead to more serious health complications requiring specialty care - something that is often beyond the reach of the uninsured.

Founded in 2001 as The Benevolent Specialists Project (BSP), the BSP Free Clinic has served the community for more than a decade. Since opening its doors, the clinic has provided specialty care to more than 10,000 patients.
