We track and monitor diseases, conduct extensive health education and outreach, provide and connect people with care, enforce food safety and air quality laws and regulations, prepare for public health emergencies, and more - all with the goal to ensure the conditions in which every Knox County resident can be healthy.

Details: Cherokee Health Systems is committed to ensuring every Tennessean has access to effective, high-quality care. We don’t think anything should stop someone from getting the care they need, and that’s why we make our services available to anyone who needs them. We offer a wide array of comprehensive health services, including primary care, behavioral health, dental, and pharmacy. All of our services are available to children, adults, and seniors who have coverage through private insurance plans, coverage through state programs like TennCare or CoverKids, and those who have no insurance coverage. We proudly offer sliding-fee scales to those who meet certain household size and income guidelines.
Details: For over 36 years, Hope Clinic has been at the forefront of care for women facing the toughest choices combining practical care with a merciful, non-judgmental approach. We put the client first. We equip her. We help all individuals involved choose health. We bring them point to hope and healing with a mind, body, spirit approach. Hope Clinic was founded by a group of community leaders, pastors, priests, physicians and volunteers to meet the unique needs of women in unplanned pregnancies in a safe and confidential environment. We began by offering pregnancy tests, options counseling by trained lay volunteers, and free maternity and baby items. We were founded on the belief that a women’s life should be valued just as highly as the child she carries and we continue to hold to that belief. While our services have expanded through the years, our commitment to her has stayed true.
Details: Free Medical Clinic provides no-charge primary care and wellness services to low-income, uninsured residents of Anderson, Morgan and Roane counties who otherwise would not have access to the medical care they need.
Details: The Helping Hands Clinic, located in Morristown, TN, is a free clinic providing primary healthcare to the people who live or work in Hamblen County and who do not have medical insurance.

Currently we provide primary care to over 2500 patients at no charge to the patient. We employ one nurse practitioner but apart from that, all the providers at the clinic are volunteers and receive no compensation for their work.
Details: Volunteers in Medicine, Chattanooga, Inc. (VIM Chattanooga) is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) primary care clinic. Volunteer physicians and nurses provide free medical services to financially eligible adults who are uninsured.

Our patients are why we exist. And every person we serve, be you a patient or a volunteer, is worth the care we give.
Details: FRIENDS IN NEED Health Center Inc. opened its doors in 1995 when community leaders identified the need for healthcare services for the medically under-served people living and working in the greater Kingsport area.

From those humble beginnings, the organization has grown from 500 patient visits in 1995 to an anticipated 6,700 patient encounters in 2019. To an anticipated 15,000 patient expected in 2020.
