Published: October 20, 2020

St. Martin's Healthcare Clinic of Garrett has received a gold rating from the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics in recognition of its commitment to providing quality care to patients and families.

NAFC quality standards include policies and procedures related to the following areas: administrative, enhanced access and continuity of care, identifying and managing patient population information, planning and managing care, providing self-care support and community resources, tracking and coordinating care, and measuring and improving performance.

"This wouldn’t be possible without the support of the NAFC, our board of directors, the 15-year leadership of Tammy Stafford, and the hundreds of staff members and volunteers who share our passion for quality health care for all and have served with us since 2005," St. Martin's stated in a press release.

"It is the mission of St. Martin’s Healthcare Services to offer quality health care to those individuals without the means to provide for themselves. In this, we strive to help maintain the physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual health of our community." For more information about the NAFC, visit
