Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic


Named for Broadway’s beloved caricaturist, The Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic was established in 2003 with a $500,000 grant from Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS to address the immediate needs of members of the entertainment community who are uninsured or underinsured.

People in the entertainment industry work in uncertain careers and may not make medical care a priority, ignoring symptoms, concealing diagnoses and putting off treatment. The Hirschfeld Clinic provides necessary medical services and works to prevent illness and emergency room visits that result from neglecting health care.

The clinic provides primary and specialty care, health screenings and patient education. Lab testing provided through the clinic is free to uninsured patients.  

Primary care at the clinic includes routine preventive medical care, ongoing management of medical problems and urgent sick visits. Preventative care includes flu vaccinations, mammograms, prostate exams, breast examinations, tuberculosis and diabetes screening, blood pressure and cholesterol testing, vision screening and a lot more.

“Thank you so much for all the kindness, time and medical services made available to me at the clinic. What a dream come true for so many of us trying to make a living as performers, going from job to job yet seldom putting together the weeks required in any one year for union coverage. Having no health insurance, I could not be more grateful."

- Client, The Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic

“Thank you so much for your care and sharing your time with me. The coupling of your skills, compassion and generosity is greatly appreciated, particularly when I was in such pain. For everything that’s being done and made available at the Hirschfeld Clinic, I am so grateful.”

- Client, The Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic
