Our Story

The largest faith-based privately funded healthcare organization in the United States, Church Health is the medical home to tens of thousands of uninsured and underserved individuals and families across Shelby County, Tennessee. In fiscal year 2020 alone, Church Health saw more than 18,500 patients and had more than 55,500 patient encounters.

Founded in 1987, Church Health’s mission is to reclaim the Church’s biblical commitment to care for our bodies and spirits. This vision has steadily grown and flourished into a robust model of integrated medical, dental, physical rehabilitation, eye care and behavioral health services, in addition to nutrition, movement and health ministry programs offered on-site and in the community.

With a network of more than 1,000 volunteer providers and partnerships with congregations, health care institutions, businesses and facilities—in Memphis and across the United States–Church Health fosters health and well-being through clinical services, educational resources, family programs and outreach.
