Christian Health Ministry

CHM logoThe Christian Health Ministry of White County (CHM) is a 501C-3 non-profit faith based holistic outreach care ministry with a mission of promoting the physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness of the medically disadvantaged in White County.The CHM is located at 104 East Vine Street in Searcy and is open Sunday afternoons, 1 – 5 p.m. New patients need to arrive at the clinic in person by 11 am, and only the first two patients meeting the qualifications will be seen that day. The “medically disadvantaged”, as defined by the CHM Board of Directors, are those who

  1. Find themselves unable to pay for medical treatment,
  2. Have no private medical insurance,
  3. Are not receiving Medicare or Medicaid and
  4. Whose family income does not exceed clinic standards.

Those seeking services at CHM have an opportunity to make a $5 donation. No one is turned away from obtaining services because of inability to pay.

Staff and Operation

CHM2

CHM is staffed entirely by volunteers and operates through donations from individuals, churches & businesses in our community. The heart of

our ministry is the volunteers that make this ministry happen. On a typical Sunday, CHM is staffed by 1-2 Physicians (or 1 Physician - 1 Nurse Practitioner); 2-3 Nurses; 2 Waiting Room Greeters; 2 Office Workers, Pharmacist & 1 Pharmacy Technician. During the week numerous volunteers continue to carry out the ministry mission. All volunteer medical staff are board-certified and hold current Arkansas licenses to practice in the state. In 2004, CHM volunteers provided 3,000+ hours of service.

Our Guests

Over 2,000 visits by patients seeking medical care, medication or counseling occurred in 2004. Majority of the patients that use CHM are considered “chronic” patients, reside in Searcy, are employed and are between 20-40 years of age.

Outreach

CHM’S desire is to meet the basic needs of the whole person (physically, emotionally & spiritually) and to share the love of Christ by serving others. Spiritual counseling & teaching is available, but not required, to those receiving care. Our hope is that, through the services offered by CHM, the “medically disadvantaged” citizens of White County will have an opportunity to attain wellness of the body, mind and spirit. Through these wellness opportunities, we will be able to improve the overall quality of lives and assist in the overall development of better families, employees and citizens of our county.
