Sharing the Love of Jesus Christ through Medical Ministry.
History: Â Â Â
The Pool of Siloam Medical Ministry began in 2002 as a joint effort by members of two Shreveport Methodist congregations; Faith United Methodist Church, a predominately African-American church in Cedar Grove and Grace Community Church, a primarily Caucasian congregation on Ellerbe Road. Â Â Â Â
The founding board of the Pool recognized that, in spite of the ready availability of state and federally funded health care and social services for selected populations, many people continue to suffer due to lack of medical care. Â The board believed that additional local healthcare services were necessary to improve the quality of medical care by providing a mechanism for education and awareness, early recognition by identification of risk factors and screening, providing basic medical care and maximizing utilization of available services and resources.Â
The focus of our ministry, since inception, has been to develop a primary care clinic that meets the health needs of the uninsured and medically underserved residents of our community. We realized from our experience treating indigent patients, that medications and medical supplies would have to be provided free of charge when necessary to insure patient compliance and improved health.
