Who We Are

Sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Augustine, Florida the St. John Bosco Clinic opened on July 1st 1992 and has continuously maintained its service to the Miami-Dade community. The Clinic opened as a response to the growing number of underserved and uninsured individuals who lacked access to basic primary healthcare.

Originally situated at the St. John Bosco Church campus in Little Havana, the Clinic's service delivery grew from one half-day in a small area of a building to its current service of five days per week, nights and weekend access in a large stand-alone clinic. In 2007, the clinic moved to its current location on the campus of Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Allapattah.

The Clinic is supported by SSJ Health Foundation, volunteer physicians and support staff. Philanthropic individual and corporate donors, foundation grants and in-kind support from our generous community partners make it possible to serve our community.
