Mission, Vision & Values
Hope Clinic exists to share the love of Christ by partnering with our community to provide quality, compassionate health care to our medically underserved neighbors.
That all McKinney residents have access to quality, affordable medical care.
At Hope Clinic, we are gospel-centered and exhibit Christian values.
Dignity and Respect: Every person who walks through our doors has innate value because they were created in the image of God. We love our patients because Christ loved them first.
“Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.” -Romans 15:2
Integrity: We do what we say we are going to do. We take responsibility for our actions, maintain a growth mindset, admit our mistakes and learn from them. We do the right thing for the right reason, even when it isn’t the easiest thing.
“So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.” -Romans 14:12
Excellence: We deliver excellent health care and maintain our professionalism. We do everything thoughtfully and to the best of our ability. We plan as best we can and take timely actions using available information. We are not afraid to change course as other information becomes available.
“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” -Col. 3:23
Holistic Care: We treat the whole human, not just the medical issue.
“Let us love not merely with words or speech but with actions in truth.” -1 John 3:18
Compassion: We are relational, not transactional, for that is where true community development begins.
“Jesus taught and healed with compassion for all.” -Matthew 4:24
Teamwork: We are all on the same team, and treat each other as such. We give each other the benefit of the doubt. We step up when we see a need. We know that together we can accomplish more than we can alone.
“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.” –1 Cor. 12:12, 26
The Hope Clinic of McKinney is a place where we look to share the love of Christ by providing hope and healing for the whole person. Our vision is to become the full time medical home for over 1,000 uninsured residents in our city. We strive to create a space where everyone is treated with dignity, respect and love while delivering high quality medical, wellness and spiritual care.
Hope Clinic of McKinney saw its first patient in 2017, the fulfillment of a plan that began in 2014 with the recognition of the unmet need for quality care for the uninsured in our community. 12% of McKinney residents are without medical insurance. In East Mckinney where Hope Clinic is located, the need is even higher. In June 2016, a team of volunteers and partners formed to bring our mission of Hope and Healing in McKinney to life. Hope Clinic of Garland, a well-established charitable clinic in Dallas County, welcomed the team into their facility and provided much-needed encouragement and knowledge. We partnered with the Baptist Immigration Center, who generously offered to donate the use of their building to Hope Clinic to use when they were closed. And Empowering Community Health Outreach donated their consulting services to provide vital direction and infrastructure to clinic planning.
Through the hard work of its volunteers, and with support of the community, Hope Clinic began operations one day a week at the Baptist Immigration Center in July 2017 to provide medical services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. By 2018, clinic operations expanded to 2 days. And in September 2019, Hope Clinic relocated to our current location which is a dedicated permanent clinic space on E. Lamar. Our new home allows for increased operating hours and service of more patients. Our vision is to expand operations over the next few years to be able to see patients 6 days a week.
Over 100 volunteers from all across the community have worked together to serve our uninsured neighbors at the Hope Clinic of McKinney. And we have grown to serve hundreds of patients and provide thousands of appointments to patients who otherwise would have gone without care or gone to an emergency room for basic medical care.
We need people like you to serve those who need it most.
