It all started in the early 1960s when the dream became a reality for a group of five Christian physicians practicing in rural southwest Michigan who had a heart for medical missions. They formed Southwestern Medical Clinic, P.C. with the goal of supporting and collaborating with each other. Starting out by offering the furloughing medical missionary a place to train, readjust, and reenter and enter U.S. medical practice, it has grown to become a group with a multi-faceted and unique ministry to medical missions and missionaries around the world. Since our founding, we have maintained a Christian ministry practice combining a private business structure with a heart for Christian mission. Our focus is serving Jesus Christ through medical care, domestic and foreign missions, and Christian witness. We focus on treating and serving patients in need who may not have access to other providers, while also delivering the best available care to everyone in the community.
