The Willa Carson Health and Wellness Center (formerly the North Greenwood Health Resource Center) was founded by Willa Livingston Carson, RN to meet the needs of uninsured residents in her community. Her vision was to bring a free, easily accessible clinic to the heart of the North Greenwood community in Clearwater, Florida.
Through her compelling personality, Willa Carson was able to secure volunteers from the community’s churches, various agencies and local government offices. The original Center opened May 4, 1997 in two rooms at 1001 North Greenwood Apartments. Immediately after opening, Mrs. Carson worked tirelessly to secure the additional funding of $300,000 to build a permanent facility for the North Greenwood Community Health Resource Center on city-owned Brownfield property. The Center moved into the new facilities in December 2000.
Services are provided to uninsured adults (ages 18-64) who meet the income criteria. Call us at (727) 467-9411 or email info@WillaCarson.org to see if you qualify.
