Via Christi Health will host its first Wichita Medical Mission at Home: A Day of Free Healthcare on Saturday, April 14, 2018.
The Day of Free Health Care is offered in collaboration with Wichita State University, the City of Wichita, and dozens of other community providers and organizations.
Free healthcare services will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 9:30 a.m. and continuing until everyone who has registered by 3 p.m. has been seen.
Last year’s event was the inaugural Day of Free Healthcare in Wichita.
Services will include:
- Medical testing
- Medical care
- Dental, vision and hearing screening
- Foot care
- Community services
- Connection to follow-up care
Some people are not able to get the medical care they need for themselves or for their families. The Medical Mission at Home seeks to reach individuals who are uninsured and need access to healthcare services.

Hundreds of volunteers are organizing to make the mission a success. Community partners include:
- City of Wichita
