What: 25th Anniversary Celebration Dinner
When: 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 14,
Where: Crowne Plaza Hotel, 401 W. Summit Hill Drive, Knoxville, TN.
Dr. Tom Kim, the staff and volunteers at The Free Medical Clinic of America are getting ready to celebrate a significant milestone, and we would like for you to join us.
Twenty-five years ago, Dr. Kim began providing free medical treatment to men and women in the Greater Knoxville area. For approximately 12 years, he did so after normal business hours at his private oncology practice. On July 1, 2005, he closed his practice and launched The Free Medical Clinic of America where he has been serving uninsured working Americans ever since.
In February of this year, the clinic welcomed its 15,000th new patient – quite a milestone in itself. We know how much our patients appreciate the care they receive at The Free Medical Clinic. We hear from them almost daily as they thank us for being there for them, whether it’s treating them for common illnesses such as the flu or upper respiratory infections or helping them cope with ongoing health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure or thyroid issues.
The clinic has also benefited Knox County and Knoxville government to the tune of more than $20 million. That’s roughly how much it would have cost taxpayers to reimburse hospitals for treating these uninsured patients in the emergency rooms.
We want to celebrate with you these 25 years of service by the Free Medical Clinic to the Greater Knoxville and East Tennessee Community, where it has been an honor and privilege to care for our working folks who are without health insurance. Please join us if you can. If you cannot attend, you can still help by sponsoring one or more of our volunteer honorees.
Thank you for the many ways you have supported The Free Medical Clinic through the years. We hope to see you at the celebration dinner.
