Medical Mission at Home: A Day of Free Healthcare

Ascension caregivers, including Ascension Via Christi, work to improve the health and wellness of people in communities across the nation, paying special attention to neighbors living in poverty. Our event is made possible through our partners, Wichita State University, the City of Wichita and Newman University, along with other area community non-profit organizations.

Healthcare that leaves no one behind

What’s it all about?

Medical Mission at Home offers spiritually centered care designed to improve your health and the health of our community. Best of all, it’s free, so no insurance is needed. Services will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Last patient admitted at noon.

Most services and activities are indoors. Patients: Indoor patient registrations will begin at 8 a.m. All patients who have registered by noon will be seen.

  • Medical testing
  • Medical care
  • Dental, vision and hearing screening
  • Foot care
  • Community services
  • Connection to follow-up care
  • Check back for more services as the date approaches

Some people are not able to get the medical care they need for themselves or for their families. Our doctors, nurses, staff and community partners will provide both children and adults with a free doctor’s appointment. We will also connect you to community resources and follow-up care.

Why does it matter?

Access to affordable health care remains a challenge for many.

Ascension Medical Mission at Home is part of our national commitment to reach individuals who are uninsured and need access to health care services. It’s about more than one day of care — an Ascension Medical Mission at Home helps connect those who struggle with long-term medical homes and insurance.
