Since opening the first health center in 1995, Christ Community Health Services has worked to eliminate health disparities and to equalize health care in Shelby County. Today, Christ Community Health Services has seven strategically placed health centers, a dedicated Women’s Center, one Homeless Mobile Clinic, three Dental Centers and four Pharmacies within communities that suffer unduly from medical and economic disparities.
Christ Community offers Primary Care, Pediatric, OB, HIV, Refugee Care and spiritual counseling in all our health centers. Many patients look to Christ Community as their only hope. We walk with them through their healing process, spiritually and physically. To our patients, Christ Community is their sanctuary, our staff their hope, and our willingness to stand with them in prayer their lifeline. Working at Christ Community Health Services is a calling to serve and an opportunity to bear witness to His Glory while serving the underserved.
