Something from Church Health
Rivers Powers, GSL Liaison
Church Health is a charitably-funded, faith-based organization located in the Crosstown Concourse in Midtown Memphis that provides comprehensive healthcare and health services to individuals with little or no access to affordable healthcare. Grace-St. Luke's supports Church Health through an Outreach grant. In the last year alone, Church Health encountered more than 54,000 patient visits and extended training, education and outreach to countless individuals and organizations.
With the generous support of volunteer providers, donors and community partners, Church Health works tirelessly to improve health and well-being so that people can experience the full richness of life.
The Model for Healthy Living serves as the cornerstone of care and outreach. Joy or pain of any kind inevitably affects overall health and well-being. A balanced, healthy life encompasses faith, movement, work, emotions, nutrition, friends & family as well as medical care. Recognizing the relationships between all these parts of our lives, the Model reflects the realities of our everyday lives—families, jobs, schedules—and reminds us of areas we may neglect.
A donation to Church Health helps someone see a doctor, manage diabetes, recover from a fall, overcome addiction, return to work, care for their families, reclaim hope. And smile.
