Casa de Salud
Saint Louis University School of Medicine students volunteer at Casa de Salud, a premier health care resource for the foreign-born community of metropolitan St. Louis and part of the infrastructure that welcomes people of all origins to our region. Casa believes that a diverse and inclusive community is the bedrock of a vibrant and prosperous region and that when we provide access to quality health care with integrity, compassion and respect; we help create a dynamic and culturally rich community from which everyone benefits.
Located on the campus of Saint Louis University, Casa offers a variety of services for people who are uninsured or who experience significant barriers to accessing care, including primary care for illness and injury, mental health counseling, case management, care coordination and home health visits. SLU is a partnering organization with the non-profit, with our faculty members serving on Casa de Salud’s Board of Directors and joining SLU students in volunteering at the clinic.
Students who give time at Casa make a significant difference in the lives of the foreign-born and the underserved, which results in better health and prosperity for our region.
