Islamic center turned into free clinic for community

A mosque in northern Ohio has converted its spare rooms into the region’s first free clinic.

The Cleveland Ibn Sina Clinic is located inside of the Islamic Center of Cleveland in Parma. Although the facility is being run by 20 different Muslim doctors volunteering their skills, its doors will be open to uninsured patients from all religions and walks of life.

All of the clinic’s services will be free of charge – the only thing that patients will have to worry about is the cost of prescriptions. Furthermore, the facility will be financing their operations through monthly fundraisers and donations.

The clinic, which was sponsored by the Muslim community, will only be open on the weekends. The doctors will be traveling from across Akron and Cleveland in order to volunteer at the facility on a rotating basis.

In addition to offering primary care services, the clinic will also offer treatment for sleep disorders, asthma, allergies, respiratory medicine, and mental health conditions.

Dr. Mansoor Ahmed, who is one of the doctors volunteering at the clinic, told WEWS-TV: “We have the ability, we have the potential, we have the resources. Giving a little bit of your time, I think, goes a long way in making a difference in people’s lives.”
