The UK Salvation Army Clinic sees eight patients per night on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. until close (roughly 9 p.m.). Patients are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis and may sign up at the front desk of the Salvation Army Hanger Lodge from 4:3p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Typically, we see eight patients per clinic night. Additional patients can be added to the list only if their need is great and the attending physician agrees. The clinic is not well-equipped to deal with emergency conditions, therefore those cases are referred to local emergency departments. All clinic staff—triagers, interviewers, floor managers, and physicians—are volunteers.

In addition to providing basic medical care to patients, SAC also provides several other health services including a nutrition clinic that offers healthy eating coaching, a smoking cessation support group that helps smokers quit smoking, and specialty clinics in pediatrics, dermatology, and ophthalmology.



The Salvation Army Dermatology Clinic will be held monthly. The clinic will serve both adults and children. Conditions we will see include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Screenings for skin cancer
  • Pruritus
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Scabies
  • Head lice
  • Bed bugs
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Rosacea
  • Acne

Call (859) 488-1223 for next clinic date.

Nutrition Clinic

The University of Kentucky Lexington Community Nutrition Clinic (UKLCNC) is a free student-run clinic that focuses on personalized nutrition counseling. Students, under the supervision of a registered dietician or physician, help patients explore their current food choices and give common-sense strategies to help them improve their diet. The goal of UKLCNC is to empower Kentuckians to take an active role in their nutrition, which can ultimately prevent the development of chronic diseases, as well as improve the management of existing diseases.

To make an appointment, please call 859-740-2344 or email
