The nonprofit Living Healthy Community Clinic served a record 875 clients in 2009, including 478 first-time users. These record numbers occurred even though the clinic successfully enrolled more than 300 patients in Wisconsin's BadgercarePlus for single adults without children.

Founded in 1995 by Winnebago County's Department of Health and Human Services and University of Wisconsin Oshkosh's College of Nursing, the clinic meets the needs of Winnebago County's uninsured population.
