About Us

In 1997, the mission committee of First Presbyterian Church, Bristol, TN 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 communities could help was to start a free clinic. The initial planning meeting for the health center was attended by one hundred people.

The Healing Hands Health center opened just eighteen months later. Healing Hands Health Center provides services for our working, uninsured neighbors at no charge: medical care and much needed medications; dental care including exams, x-rays, cleanings, extractions and fillings; chiropractic care; eye exams and eyeglasses; psychological and spiritual counseling services.
