Funding

The clinic is funded by a variety of sources, the largest being a collaborative project grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Division of Nursing to investigate interprofessional health care team development and outcomes. The second major funding source comes from VUSN to pay for operational costs not covered by the HRSA grant.

To assist in covering the costs of services to uninsured patients, the clinic belongs to a consortium of safety net providers that offer free or low-cost health care.

The clinic also receives donations from private sources including the Memorial Foundation, which helped purchase diagnostic testing equipment and covers a large percentage of indigent lab fees and the Boulevard Bolt, a Nashville-area 5K held on Thanksgiving Day each year.
