About the Hoya Clinic
The HOYA Clinic is a nonprofit free clinic. Consistent with Georgetown University’s spirit of cura personalis, or care of the whole person, the HOYA Clinic was founded as a dream in the minds of several Georgetown faculty members committed to serving the homeless population of the District of Columbia. With the philosophy of providing holistic care for the underserved and advocating for better health outcomes among those who have no advocates, the HOYA Clinic first opened on Sept. 18, 2007, and was housed within the old D.C. General Building starting December 18 of that year until 2018, when the facility was closed.
The HOYA Clinic reopened on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019, at The Triumph, a Community of Hope temporary housing facility in Congress Heights in Southeast Washington. Managed by Georgetown School of Medicine students with clinical oversight by Georgetown faculty physicians, HOYA Clinic provides quality health care to clients at The Triumph free of charge.
The clinic is supported by a grant from the DC Department of Health, the School of Medicine, and MedStar Health. For now, the clinic will see clients on Tuesday evenings. Other activities of the HOYA Clinic include wellness workshops and health education to improve health literacy of its clients.
To date, the HOYA Clinic has provided for almost 2,000 patient visits. Our student volunteers dedicated thousands of hours of service to make that possible. The HOYA Clinic is a small step forward to help with the healthcare crisis in DC, and one that when combined with other small efforts around the city, result in a tremendous improvement.
