Our mission is to restore dignity and “Healing Through Love” at mobile clinics, providing free health care and assistance with medications. Mission of Mercy’s success will be measured by our ability to provide health care to uninsured and underinsured working families at no cost to those who seek help at our five South Texas clinic sites.
Mission of Mercy has five mobile clinic locations. Our community partners include First United Methodist Church and Corpus Christi Police Officers’ Association in Corpus Christi, St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Flour Bluff, the Wesley Community Center in Robstown and the Knolle Jersey Farm in Sandia. We have approximately 92 clinic operating days a year usually on Monday and Wednesday of every week.
At each location, facilities are used for patient registration, patient waiting, and meetings with nurses. Patients are seen by physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. Clinics are set up like a primary care physician’s office except that no billing office is required. After registration, patients meet with nurses for evaluation. Nurses, who can perform several tests from our onsite laboratory, screen patients for diabetes, high blood pressure, and other diseases. The patients’ privacy is strongly recognized during the entire visit and process.
