You have removed all the borders from everything on line 62 of healthcare/styles.css

* {
    border: medium none;
    outline: medium none;
    text-decoration: none;

You could add something like this to get borders just on the inputs:

input.wpcf7-form-control {
    border: 1px solid #999

Change to this:

input.wpcf7-form-control, textarea.wpcf7-form-control {
    border: 1px solid #999999;

Or more simply, this:

.wpcf7-form-control {
    border: 1px solid #999999;
