Thousands of free medical services and procedures have been provided to Middle Tennesseans through Saint Thomas Health’s Medical Missions at Home. Created as a project of the Ascension Health Leadership Formation program, these day-long community health events provide needed primary and specialty care and services.
Our Medical Missions started out small, but determined. Now we are much larger and ever more determined to serve those who are the poorest among us and uninsured in an interdisciplinary, holistic, reverent manner. Every place we go, every place we are invited, we are standing on holy ground, sacred ground…the poor and vulnerable are among us. We enter as volunteers…we leave as missionaries. God is present…among us, through us, and in us as we serve “our masters…the poor.” Truly we see the face of God in the poor and vulnerable at every mission where we serve.
