PARK CITY, Utah (KUTV) — The People’s Health Clinic is a free community clinic that takes care of the uninsured in Summit and Wasatch counties.
“What we do is serve as a safety net for people who otherwise would not have access to health care,” said Dr. Mairi Leining, CEO of People’s Health Clinic.
Dr. Leining says many people probably don’t realize there is a big wealth gap in the Park City area. But there are many people in the area who can’t get typical care.
“The majority of our patients are members of the Latinx community,” said Leining. “They’re really the hardworking members of our community who are staffing all of the resorts.”
