Our ministry would be impossible without special help from several community partners. We extend special thanks and enormous gratitude to the following organizations:
St. Mary’s Legacy Foundation of East Tennessee:
The St. Mary’s Legacy Foundation of East Tennessee was formed in 2011 to continue to provide support for the ministry begun by the Sisters of Mercy with the opening of St. Mary’s Hospital in 1930. It was initially made possible through funds provided by the sale of Mercy Health Partners to Health Management Associates.
The St. Mary’s Legacy Clinic is very grateful to the St. Mary’s Legacy foundation for the purchase of our vehicle, the initial operating costs, and a down payment for our new facility.
The St. Mary’s Legacy Foundation seeks to assist the needy and vulnerable of East Tennessee by engaging in general charitable undertakings and endeavors. Learn more by visiting their website.
Knoxville Academy of Medicine Alliance:
The KAMA is a non-profit organization established in partnership with the Knoxville Academy of Medicine (KAM) to promote health education programs that impact the welfare of our community and to encourage friendships among its membership. KAMA has been a regular contributor to the St. Mary’s Legacy Clinic. In 2014 they provided a grant to fund point of care testing for anemia and cholesterol as well as refrigeration for supplies, and in 2015 KAMA provided a grant for a portable EKG machine and supplies. We are grateful for their continued support. Find out more by visiting their website.
