Christ Community Health Services has focused on fulfilling the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the poor, the uninsured, and the homeless in Memphis since 1995. Our goal is to go where the need is greatest to provide quality services in the name of Jesus Christ.
Inspired by our relationship with the source of all healing, Jesus Christ, we serve those in need. As the second largest Christian, federally qualified community health center in the nation, we operate six health centers, three dental clinics, three full-service pharmacies and one mobile medical van for the homeless. We believe that everyone should have access to quality healthcare. All are welcome.
Next month, in this office building on Poplar Avenue near Parkway, Christ Community opens its first center dedicated specifically to women, a one-stop-shop for everything from cancer screenings to prenatal care.
“We are happy about a new group obstetrics program where women go through pregnancy with other women at about the same stage of pregnancy,” said Dr. Donlon.
Bringing the center into reality takes community support and a big boost comes Sept. 28, 2013, with the Sisters in Motion Running Group’s Annual 5K Race.
The man we called Nick Adams died early Friday morning, after a three month stay at Methodist University Hospital. We met him after his transfer from Crittenden Memorial Hospital, where a C.T. scan had revealed a large brain tumor. Nick had wandered into a West Memphis homeless shelter, without memory of where he’d come and uncertainty about his name. He was given a best-guess birthday.
