The Noor Community Clinic, also known as the “Muslim Clinic Of Ohio(MCO)” is the first free clinic established by Muslim Physicians and Health care professionals in 2010. It took about 2 years to establish this clinic, and it is a partnership between the Wexner Medical Center of the Ohio State University and the Muslim Clinic Of Ohio. The 2-year long efforts and negotiations to establish the clinic were lead by Dr. Malika Haque, a Pediatrician at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, College of Medicine, The Ohio State University. Dr. Malika Haque is also the Medical Director of the Noor Clinic and Chair Advisory Board of the Muslim Clinic Of Ohio.
The Noor Community Free Clinic is held each Wednesday evening between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm at Rardin Family Practice Center located at 2231 North High Street Columbus Ohio 43201. The clinic sees patients by appointments only. The clinic sees only uninsured and underserved patients. Patients with any type of health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid need to seek health care with private doctors, hospital clinics, etc. For medical emergencies, all patients should be referred to the ER or Urgent Care. The clinic is run by Physicians, Nurses, Medical Assistants, Medical Students, and other volunteers. The clinic doors are open to patients from all faiths and cultures and not just to Muslim patients. The Noor Community Clinic is not just a place for health care but also a place for research, teaching, training, and learning for medical students.
