CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Ibn Sina Clinic, a branch of the Islamic Center of Cleveland, is opening its doors and offering health care to individuals without insurance.

The Cleveland area is known for world-renowned medical institutions, but many residents cannot afford the care. Cleveland Ibn Sina Clinic will serve as bridge between those individuals and health care facilities in the area.

“'Healthcare is not a privilege for some, it is a fundamental human right,’ is not just a slogan but the very foundation of our mission,” stated Dr. Mansoor Ahmed, Medical Director of Cleveland Ibn Sina Clinic. “There are far too many people in our communities who do not have the medical coverage they need and are reluctant to seek the medical care that they need.”

The Parma-based clinic will offer free health care services to community members who are without insurance or are underinsured. Cleveland Ibn Sina Clinic will serve anyone in need of medical assistance, regardless of race, gender, religion, and ethnicity.

An opening ceremony is scheduled for March 27 at 5 p.m.

Cleveland Ibn Sina Clinic is located at 6055 West 130th Street in Parma.
