Free Medical Clinic



In August of 2011, the Scott Christian Care Center opened a free medical clinic thanks to Dr. Tom Kim of the Free Medical Clinic of America. His family taught him to follow the example of Christ and become a light to the world. While practicing in Knoxville, Dr. Kim was moved to action when he saw the needs of the uninsured, and he founded the Free Medical Clinic of America. Since then, he started three free clinics in the surrounding areas including the clinic at the Center.



Purpose:
The Free Medical Clinic at Scott Christian Care Center seeks to provide basic medical services to individuals who lack any access to medical insurance. This Clinic is a free clinic and there is no co-pay, charges for exam or lab work.

Clinic Hours:
