about siloam Family heaLTH CENTER
In 1989, a group of members of Belmont Church in Nashville heard God's calling to find a biblical solution to meet the needs of people with limited resources who were suffering due to a lack of health insurance. From that vision, Siloam Family Health Center was born.
While Siloam began as a neighborhood clinic, today it serves uninsured people from all over Nashville and the surrounding areas. Patients are asked to participate in their health care by making a contribution depending on the services provided and their financial ability.
No one is ever turned away because they cannot afford to contribute to the ministry. Siloam does not bill patients and we do not file insurance.
About the siloam institute of faith, health and culture
The Siloam Institute is an educational initiative of Siloam Family Health Center, whose mission is to create a welcoming, interdisciplinary context for training, dialogue, and research, which bridges the gap among the faith community, the medically underserved and academic medicine.
The Siloam Institute is birthed out of two decades of practical experience in whole-person health care (body, mind, spirit) and student mentoring at Siloam Family Health Center.
The Institute exists to deepen our own understanding and practice of this model and to pass on our core values to the next generation of health care practitioners. In so doing, we hope to engage diverse underserved patient populations, academic training institutions, clinics for the uninsured, and churches and other faith- based organizations.
