Marillac leaders John Whiteside, chief medical officer, and Executive Director Kay Ramachandran leave the main office just south of St. Mary’s Hospital. Marillac now serves 7,600 patients and the designation will allow it to grow to as many as 12,686 patients over the coming years.

Marillac Clinic, with a long history of providing medical care to the uninsured, will move to nearly double the number of people it serves with its new designation as a federally qualified community health center under the Affordable Care Act.
