Welcome to CharisHealthCenter.org
At the Charis Health Center we provide primary health care for uninsured residents of Wilson County, TN. We operate similar to a regular doctor's office with the main difference being that we are staffed primarily by volunteers. If you live in Wilson County, you do not have health insurance coverage, you are eligible to be a patient.
The State of Tennessee has awarded $60,000 grant to Charis Health Center for 2013-2014. This grant is awarded through Safety Net Funding which represents medical encounters at the Center for the year. In 2012, Charis Health Center provided 2,263 medical encounters to the uninsured in Wilson County. We have estimated 2,489 in 2013.
Operations for the Day Provided by Baptist Healing Trust. You can provide the Center Operations by donating a one time donation of $950 or a cumulative total of that amount or higher. Please contact Karen Rudzinski, Director of Development at 615.504.1905 for more information.
