Missions and Services
Wallace Mobile Healthcare was established with a heart of Christian faith and service. Knoxville, TN is our home. We strive to serve the physical and spiritual needs of underserved peoples throughout Eastern Tennessee and the Appalachian region. Many of our Volunteers extend our ministry of caring beyond Tennessee into other national and international communities. From the local family in the midst of struggling with health costs to the child halfway around the world with no basic care, we are there to extend a helping hand.
To this end our mission is to:
Knox County Home Visit Program
Our Volunteer physicians, physician extenders and nurses provide basic
in-home healthcare services to individuals and families who have no health
insurance coverage, and are jobless or working with annual household income at
or below the current poverty level in Knox County, TN. Our healthcare team
members provide care for acute, short-term illnesses and for chronic
conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension. Our Home Visit Program emphasizes patient education to achieve
effective disease management and wellness over time. Our case management
Volunteers will work with the healthcare team to connect patients with helpful
resources throughout the community. Our pastoral care team integrates with the
healthcare providers to support the patient’s spiritual needs. We work with the
pharmaceutical industry and other organizations to provide assistance with
medications. We also strive to assist patients with referrals to specialty care
providers when appropriate.
Homeless Shelter Care Program
As Jesus encouraged us to care for the homeless, Wallace Mobile focuses on the physical and spiritual health of residents in our community’s homeless shelters. Our healthcare providers serve the acute and chronic healthcare needs of shelter clients who have limited or no access to government provided health services. As with our Home Visit Program, education, community resource connections, medication assistance and spiritual care are provided.
Urban and Rural Community Clinics
WMH supports urban Knoxville and rural East Tennessee communities in the nearby Appalachian region where residents have very limited access to healthcare services for economic or other reasons. Our multidisciplinary mobile clinic travels to these communities on a quarterly basis to provide medical care for acute and chronic illness, screenings, health and wellness education, healthcare resource assessments and spiritual guidance and support.
Jesus commanded his disciples to take the good news of salvation
throughout the world. In like fashion,
Wallace Mobile Healthcare intends to share the love of Christ through health
and spiritual care with people groups in need around the world. Each year Wallace Mobile Volunteers have the
opportunity to participate in one or more international mobile clinic projects.
These projects are designed to bring much-needed healthcare and the gospel to
groups of people in Africa, Asia, South America or other locations. Some projects
include a focus on orphan care, while others include a focus on bringing the
latest medical and nursing education to students in underprivileged countries.
