Any medical center/clinic/hospital ...etc that is not public is considered private.
Public means it belongs to the federal or state government.
Also, generally speaking, when we say private clinic in USA we mean small clinics.
For example Cleveland Clinic is practically a "private clinic" however, we don't mean such huge institutions when we say private clinics, we usually mean small clinics. Such clinics are typically found in suburban areas rather than large metropolitan cities.
