Catherine Washburn Medical Association
The Catherine Washburn Medical Association (CWMA - formerly Memorial Association) was formed in 1971 in memory of Catherine Washburn, a Lopez resident. The CWMA began by raising funds for the original clinic building, which was completed in 1974, and has continued to provide financial support for operations, several expansions, and much needed state-of-the-art equipment.
CWMA is the partner behind the clinic.
This website is funded by CWMA and is intended to bring a greater awareness of the role played by CWMA as well as serve the clinic itself by providing basic information about the staff and services available.
