“So many people are without medical insurance and have nowhere to turn. HIS gives these people hope for the future. Every day, there is a success story from the clinic. Hospital emergency rooms do not have the capacity to handle the poor and uninsured. The cost is too exorbitant for hospitals to treat these patients, creating more financial struggles and loss of jobs. HIS provides the community with a resource that is a win-win for everyone.”
Lonna Wiersma
HIS Board Member & Executive Committee Secretary


A medical mission in your backyard.


HIS brings Christ’s healing to the medically uninsured and underserved through the collaborative provision of medical and dental services, counseling and spiritual care.


HIS was established in 1996 by a group of local physicians, nurses, social workers and business people looking to serve underprivileged women with faith-centered medical care within the city of Grand Rapids. The mission quickly expanded to include all those without access to health care. A non-profit 501(c)3 health care center located in the Burton Heights since 1998, HIS has become a trusted resource for medical care and counsel in the West Michigan community.


Fueled by the dedication, energy and expertise of 130 volunteer physicians, nurses, interpreters, and support staff and a small but ambitious staff, HIS provides exceptional care and services to over 2,000 patients a year. HIS is supported by an active Board of Directors, comprised of dedicated members from the Grand Rapids region, that directly supports HIS operations, oversees fundraising and upholds the vision and mission of the organization. HIS is a team of dedicated and knowledgeable staff members and volunteers who are committed to providing for your physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
