Al Rahma Community Clinic
The Al Rahma Community Clinic is coordinated by the Muslim Physicians of Minnesota in collaboration with the Muslim Community Center of Minnesota in Bloomington located in the building adjacent to the mosque. Officially opening on February 26, 2008, the clinic was started by Dr. Bibi Swalehah Khoyratty, a hematologist/oncologist practicing in the Twin Cities area. The goal of the clinic is to provide medical care to all those who need it, serving the underinsured and uninsured, an initiative inspiring other Muslim and religious groups. In recognizing the work of the clinic, the Al Rahma Clinic was featured in Minnesota Medicine Magazine March 2010 Issue, “Mosques on a Medical Mission.”1 The clinic, open Saturday mornings from 9am to noon, is open to serving all, regardless of religion, country of origin, race, creed or sex, and is dependent on fundraisers, donation and volunteer physicians, medical assistants, and community and social care specialists. Within two years of its opening in 2008, the Rahma Community Clinic has served around 200 patients with over 700 visits.
The clinic provides free doctors consultations and visits, including written prescriptions, and appointments can be made either through the website, www.rahmaclinic.org, or by calling the clinic directly at 952-431-3433, though walk in’s are always welcomed. Laboratory tests and x-rays are available as well, through a third party vendor, at a discounted rate as hospitals in agreement with the clinic only charge the cost of the test.2
