WILLA CARSON HEALTH AND WELLNESS CENTER

Willa Carson Center serves approximately 4,000 uninsured and under-served patients, provides medical services to all of Pinellas County, with 30% coming from outside of the North Greenwood Community.  Services are focused on non-emergency primary health care, treating conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, asthma and other chronic illnesses.  There are also free-to-the-public monthly education classes and a community outreach program.

The Center’s primary source of funding is through grants, in-kind donations and fund-raising events.  Major funding over the past three years has been provided by the City of Clearwater Community Block Grant, Pinellas County Social Action Funding, Morton Plant Mease Foundation, Pinellas Community Foundation, Allegany Franciscan Ministries, Florida Association of Free and Charitable Clinics and Gulfcoast N. Educational Center. We have also formed great partnerships with the Black Nurses Association and Turley Family Health Center.

TESTIMONIALS

After volunteering at the Willa Carson Health and Wellness Center I feel like im making a difference in my community. To be able to help give someone the gift of health is an amazing feeling. To know the struggles some of these individuals go through im truly blessed knowing that im apart of something bigger than myself.

Jeff M, Clearwater

I was referred by Mease Dunedin Hospital by a social worker because I had no insurance. I had a heart arrhythmia and I needed to see a doctor. My cholesterol was high and I was having trouble breathing. I came for appointments twice per week at the Willa Carson Center and my arrhythmia decreased by half within two weeks, and my cholesterol came down too. Josephine (ARNP) saved my life. They are great and they accept anyone. I am grateful for the help.

Helen R, Clearwater

I really liked the STEPS FORWARD program. It taught me to be mindful of my daily steps which led me to make better choices about what I eat and when.

Tyna M, Clearwater

I have been volunteering on the Board of Directors for the past three years. It’s rewarding to play a role in helping individuals gain access to quality care, regardless of their income. It’s also rewarding to be a part of a legacy started by a woman who persevered to bring the health care center to the North Greenwood Community.
