Our Story

Enhancing Lives

Mercy Medicine Free Clinic was originated on strong Christian values held by Dr. N.B. Baroody, Dr. Earl Jones, Dr. Myers Hicks, Dr. Harry S. Allen Jr., and Dr. James Owen.

These founders’ beliefs and commitment to providing healthcare to low income and uninsured individuals of Florence and Williamsburg counties while maintaining Christian principles of love, faith and compassion have guided our path for more than 20 years.

On October 25, 1994, Mercy Medicine began operation and saw medical patients every Tuesday morning at the Manna House in Florence, SC. Four years later the clinic relocated to Lighthouse Ministries.

In 2013 the clinic moved to our current home on 500 South Coit Street and in 2005 under the guidance of Dr. Thad Davis and Charles Greene widen its mission to also cover basic dental services.

After two decades of heartfelt work, Mercy Medicine Free Clinic has become an established medical center and still holds true to the founders’ vision. In 2017 more than 1600 office visits and 230 dental visits resulted in each life being touched with professionalism, love and caring. Each life touched by one of these visits is only possible due to the commitment of our volunteers, supporters, donors, staff and each of their prayers.

After twenty years, Mercy Medicine Free Clinic continues to fulfill the vision of its founders. In 2017, the clinic had 1677 medical visits and 230 dental visits onsite. Many of our patients were seen offsite by medical and dental specialists as well. This would not be possible if it were not for the support from all the wonderful administrative, medical, dental, and spiritual volunteers who gave over 4200 hours of their time in 2017.  We are blessed with brilliant partners, and gracious donors.
