RotaCare Bay Area is a volunteer alliance of medical professionals, organizations and community members dedicated to providing free primary, quality healthcare services to uninsured families and individuals with limited ability to pay for medical care. We are volunteer driven and supported solely through locally based philanthropy. RotaCare has 501(c)(3) nonprofit status as defined by the Internal Revenue Service. The RotaCare name is federally trademarked.

Each clinic is run like an urgent medical care clinic. All are intended to treat pain and suffering, although each has a slightly different scope of service depending on the needs of the community it serves. The clinics each serve between 10 and 40 patients per clinic session.

Sponsored by Rotary International and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
