Mercy Place is a free outpatient clinic affiliated with St. Joseph Mercy Oakland, which provides comprehensive health care, treatment and prevention to uninsured people who do not qualify for other health care alternatives. It is located in downtown Pontiac, and although most clients come from the Pontiac area, the clinic serves select, northern Oakland County zip codes. The free clinic is supported by volunteer physicians who donate their time and generous donors who endorse the Mercy mission of caring for all, regardless of their ability to pay.
Mercy Place exemplifies our Mercy mission and values, which emphasize justice by working for the common good through advancing the health status of the community. The mission especially takes steps to ensure that the needs of the underserved are addressed.
