Family Health La Clinica
- Hospitals & Clinics
In the 1960s, a group of health professionals and migrant advocates in cooperation with church leaders got together and began providing free health services to migrant farmworkers in some of the church halls. This ultimately resulted in La Clinica de los Campesinos being formally organized in 1972 as a non-profit Wisconsin corporation. That same year, La Clinica secured federal funding and began delivering primary health care services in Wild Rose, Wisconsin, under the guidelines of the Migrant Health Center Program.
In the mid-1980s, La Clinica initiated its outreach program providing migrant mobile health services and a voucher program. Under a formal agreement, the voucher program pays participating health care providers for services they provide to migrant and seasonal farmworkers who work and live too far from La Clinica's health center in Waushara County.
