How We Began…

FRIENDS IN NEED Health Center Inc. opened its doors in 1995 when community leaders identified the need for healthcare services for the medically underserved people living and working in the greater Kingsport area.  The community agencies involved included Wellmont Holston Valley Medical Center, Junior League of Kingsport and several local churches.  From those humble beginnings, the organization has grown from 500 patient visits in 1995 to an anticipated 6,000 patient encounters in 2017.
