Via Christi Hosts Free Health Clinic

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Hundreds packed Mueller Elementary School for a day of free health care. 

"I'm very grateful for this," said Carrie Moore. 

Like Moore, those without health insurance were able to get their hearing checked, teeth cleaned, and more at Via Christi's Second Annual Medical Mission At Home.

"I got a lot of different help today on several different issues," said Moore. "I had my vision checked, I had my hearing checked, I had blood work tests done." 

Via Christie Health CEO Michael Mullins says he's thankful for Wichita State University, the City of Wichita and all the agencies that helped make the event possible. 

"I think it shows the solidarity of a community wanting to help other community members," said Mullins. "W"e're grateful to have an opportunity to do something that could make a difference in the lives of folks."

Some of those lives include the Nichols-Wenman family. 

"It means a lot that they're helping people that need it, basically  the people that don't have insurance and stuff like that, that need the medical checkups," said Destiney Nichols.

After positive feedback from patients, Mullins says they look forward to hosting the clinic again next year.

"From folks that have left, they've been very pleased; they've been very grateful for the access," he said. "By the fact of us taking it out to the community opposed to having them want to come to us just shows we care."
