The mission of Healing Hands Health Center is to glorify Christ by providing quality, charitable health care to low income uninsured and underinsured residents of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.
Welcome to Healing Hands Health Center
In 1996, the mission committee of First Presbyterian Church, Bristol, Tennessee read an article in Parade Magazine about the health care crisis in the United States. It stated that one million more Americans go without health insurance each year, and one way that communities could help was to start a charitable clinic. The initial planning meeting for the health center was attended by one hundred people.
Healing Hands Health Center opened just eighteen months later. This October, Healing Hands Health Center will celebrate 25 years of service to our region! Since opening in October 1997, our clinic has provided 100,200 patient visits and dispensed over $42 million in prescription medications.
