Ministry in Motion Mobile Health Outreach
Tomorrow's hospitals won't just have four walls - sometimes they'll have four wheels.  Mobile Health Outreach Coordinator Kathy Ferrell shares how bringing good health to the community is a core ministry for Saint Thomas:
Ministry in Motion, Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital’s Mobile Health Unit, is a reflection of our Mission which calls us to improve the health of individuals and communities with special attention to the poor and vulnerable. This Ministry is a core strategic commitment within our annual Care of Persons Living in Poverty and Community Benefit Plan. Our goal is to help achieve access to health care, helping individuals overcome barriers and obstacles. Saint Thomas Rutherford, as a faith-based health care institution, is motivated by the principles of Human Dignity and Common Good. These principles are shared by our collaborative partners: The Guidance Center, Primary Care & Hope Clinic, and Saint Thomas Emergency Medical Services.

Ministry in Motion is in service 4 – 5 days each week. We are happy to answer questions at any time. Please contact Kathy Ferrell, or 615-396-4693, for additional information.
