FREE MEDICAL CARE
Clinics and counting
In JESUS Name Medical Ministry is a faith based – compassion focused non profit 501(c)3 organization that was established in 2009. We partner teams of licensed doctors and nurses alongside local churches, schools and other available community centers where we bring high quality – no cost medical care to the community.
Our team of medical and non medical professionals are dedicated to helping all people from all backgrounds without exception and regardless of age, race, ethnicity, income, religious affiliation, disability, or any other circumstances. We focus on serving the uninsured, underinsured and any other area of need where we might have a positive impact in helping to foster a healthier community. We believe that a healthy community is a more productive community
In Jesus Name Medical Ministry (IJN) was founded by Dr. Scott Southard in the Northern Nevada and California area more than 14 years ago and has since facilitated more than 200 clinics, cared for over 6,000 patients, and has been able to provide approximately 85 surgeries for people at no cost.
Dr. Southard has the vision to expand the ministry nationally to as many cities as possible in the United States. Las Vegas is the second location and had its first clinic in March 2019.
WHAT WE DO
Once a month, our team heads out to a host church or organization somewhere in the region where we set up a FREE medical clinic for the day. We usually bring 15-20 medical and non-medical volunteers, and in partnership with volunteers from the church, we transform the designated building space into a temporary medical clinic for the day. Multiple physicians from various specialties are often available including Family Practice, Orthopedic, Pediatrics, Allergy, Internal Medicine, Optometry, etc. In some locations, we bring a mobile X-ray unit.
All our medical and administrative personnel involved with the ministry are volunteers who are professing Christians who use their God given gifts in serving The Lord. They are each acting in accordance with the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:40 when He said:
“… Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of
mine, you did for me”
WHY WE DO IT
We do it because we care like Jesus cares. His love for others resides in us. We live out the compassion as He would.
IJN clinics provide FREE medical services to vulnerable individuals and families who go without quality medical care. Individuals who come to us for help are seen without consideration of their financial status, station in life, nationality, or faith. They are seen on a first-come, first-served basis, and are treated with dignity, compassion, and respect, just as Jesus would treat them.
WHO IS IT FOR?
This FREE service is for anyone in need, for people with insufficient healthcare coverage (either insured, underinsured, or no insurance at all).
