The mission of the Primary Care & Hope Clinic is to improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve by providing excellent and compassionate care, accessible to all.


Statistics show uninsured patients often fail to obtain preventative health care, as well as primary care for routine illnesses because they have no consistent point of health care access.


Too often, the lack of access causes uninsured patients to develop advanced diseases and seek treatment in the most expensive, accessible environments.

The Primary Care & Hope Clinic provides a medical home for the uninsured that consists of the sustained and integrated delivery of preventive, acute, chronic and behavioral health services. As a primary care safety net provider, the Primary Care & Hope Clinic assumes ongoing responsibility for health maintenance and disease management, emphasizing continuity of care over the entire spectrum of health care services.


The Primary Care & Hope Clinic strengthens the mission of providing accessible, affordable health care for the uninsured by combining the efforts of volunteers, businesses, educational, civic, religious, professional and governmental institutions. By involving the entire community, the Primary Care & Hope Clinic can operate as a responsible steward of its charitable resources while providing quality, affordable healthcare for the uninsured and underserved.


The Primary Care & Hope Clinic was developed in 1992 by a group of concerned citizens who saw a need to increase and improve access to healthcare.  Services encompass not only the physical examination but provision of lab work, x-ray diagnostics, behavioral health services, medications, and social services.


The clinic is located in a 27,000 square foot facility, the Community of Hope, which was completed in September of 2008. The current facility provides the infrastructure necessary to expand services to the uninsured and underserved in our community.


The growth and expansion of the Primary Care & Hope Clinic is the result of generous community support, strong partnerships, flexible operating structure, fiscal accountability, and a dedication to the mission to provide healthcare to the medically uninsured and underserved.


The facility was completely funded through donations from the community including 2.4 acres of land donated by the City of Murfreesboro and a grant from the Christy Houston Foundation.
