What happens when the church meets the city's needs?
we're here to find out.
WHO WE ARE
We are the local church. We are nurses, doctors, college students, dentists, stay at home moms, and retirees. We are men and women who believe our God wants to do something big in our city and each day we ask Him to use us. As we open the doors to our clinics every morning, we see Him work miracles in our midst.
We're Watermark Health. How can we serve you?
what God is doing through Watermark Health...
meeting physical needs
We provide acute care services through our two clinics in Dallas and Collin County to the uninsured and underinsured. Services are free of charge, only requesting a nominal donation so that patients have buy-in for their care. In 2018 we saw over 10,000 patient visits and saved the residents of DFW over $10.7 Million in urgent care services. Men and women that would have ended up in the ER for non-emergent needs found the access to healthcare they needed in our facility.
mobilizing and empowering the local church
We intentionally leave space for volunteers to cover roles crucial to operations. One study indicates that 94% of patients desire that their medical staff would discuss spiritual things with them, but a majority of Christian healthcare workers feel intimidated or ill-equipped to share their faith. Within our four walls, medical professionals are learning how to not only live out their faith through acts of service but how to articulate the reason why they do what they do.
engaging souls with the power and love of the gospel
We believe that every person who walks through our doors has innate value, dignity, and worth because they were made in the image of our Creator. As we care for their physical needs we're able to also care for spiritual ones. Patients leave grateful to have found a safe place to not only get the resources and education they need for their health, but to also meet staff that cares for the entire human that they are. We have the privilege of watching God change lives in our midst...our staff and volunteers included!
