Sumter Faith Clinic: "The Lord Led Us"

In October 2011, nurse practitioners Mary Wysochansky and Anna Stinchcum founded and opened the Sumter Faith Clinic — a free clinic to treat the uninsured and underinsured in Americus, Ga., a community Wysochansky says has been particularly hard-hit by the economy. Fueled solely by donations, the facility provides basic health care and spiritual support to Sumter County residents.  Wysochansky and Stinchcum, who also work for pay at a nearby health clinic, donate their time to the free Sumter clinic along with a number of other nurses, doctors and support staff. "The spiritual benefits are wonderful," says patient Regina K. Benson. "They will pray with you. They treat you as a person rather than a number.  You’re treated with respect, and no matter that your income is low, they don’t look down on you."

Great point, Terry!

Anonymous, this clinic is based in Americus, Georgia, and not South Carolina. Thank you for enjoying the video!

What a wonderful witness these ladies are providing for "the least of these" as Jesus called them.
We also need to remember what one of the NP's said about how we all end up paying for the uninsured.
