St Ben’s offers a primary care clinic and community outreach programs, and is affiliated with Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital andpartners with  Health Care for the Homeless Milwaukee. St. Ben's nurse practitioner-managed services aim to provide respectful and comprehensive health care to all our clients.

St Ben's Clinic is staffed by nurse practitioners, social workers, registered nurses, volunteer doctors and volunteer receptionists.  Our outreach programs are conducted by registered nurses and social work staff.

The clinic may see walk-in patients, but those with appointments are given first priority. You MUST have an appointment to see a doctor.
