Make A Difference
With one in five Americans lacking health insurance, there are many people suffering with unmet medical needs.
The Free Medical Clinic of America is built upon these words from Christ about serving the least, the lonely, and the lost. Founded in 1993 by Dr. Tom Keun Kim, this Christian mission serves the working poor who can’t afford medical insurance by providing totally free healthcare services. This care is provided to those who are often the ones that most desperately need medical attention but have no way to pay for it.
The Free Medical Clinic of America is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization that uses 100% of financial contributions to provide medical care for the medically uninsured working members of our community.
Dr. Tom Kim, a physician specializing in Internal Medicine and Hematology-Oncology, is originally from North Korea. He managed to escape with part of his family during the Korean War at the age of six. His family eventually moved to the United States, and in 1979 Dr Kim came to Knoxville with his goal of “repaying his debt to America for the gift of a new life.”
Dr. Kim was raised in a strong Christian environment, where he was taught to follow the example of Christ and become a “light unto the world.” He believes that all people are challenged to love their neighbor as Jesus commanded. This includes providing our poor neighbors with the healthcare they deserve, and not simply relying on the government to respond to this need.
