BSP Free Clinic

doctor with patients

The Benevolent Specialist Project, or BSP Free Clinic, was founded in 2001 by the late Drs. Ernie Pellegrino and Paul Simenstad as well as Dr. Walt Sundstrom. Since then, its volunteer specialists, nurses, interpreters and other staff have provided exemplary care to more than 15,000 patients.

The BSP Free Clinic is dedicated to providing quality specialty health care services at no cost to people without insurance or with insufficient insurance. It's the only clinic of its kind in Wisconsin!

Key Details

  • More than 35 physicians (retired and practicing) volunteer their specialty services.
  • Patients are seen on a referral basis only using our Patient Referral Form.
  • Patients must be at or below 250 percent of the federal poverty level.
  • The BSP Free Clinic is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
  • Interpreters - primarily for Spanish-speaking patients - are available.


In addition to our 50 or so physicians, dedicated nurses, medical transcriptionists, interpreters and support personnel generously volunteer to staff the clinic.
