Salvus Center, founded in 2005, is a faith-based health center that seeks to reclaim the Biblical and historical commitment to care for those who are sick and in need so they might experience wholeness, wellness and healing. We provide medical and dental care to those in Sumner County who are working and have no medical insurance. This is a “hand-up” for those who are working every day to keep a roof over their head and food on the table. Patients pay a fee for their office visit, which is based on a sliding scale determined by family income and number of dependents in the home.
Serving Sumner County
In the ten years that Salvus Center has been in operation, there have been over 35,000 patient visits, and many of its patients have now made the Salvus Center their primary care facility.
We are not a walk-in clinic. Instead, we work to establish a relationship with each patient so that the physical, mental and spiritual needs of the patient can be met and the patient can experience wholeness, wellness and healing. Qualifying family members can also be seen at the clinic.
Salvus Center supports the United Way of Sumner County.
Supported by Community Hospitals & Physicians
As a nonprofit organization, Salvus Center operations are primary funded by nonprofit grants and individuals. Please support our efforts in Sumner County.
Salvus Center partners with both area hospitals, Hendersonville Medical Center and Sumner Regional Medical Center and nearly every specialty physician in Sumner County to ensure that the patient receives total care from examinations to diagnosis to treatment.
The Dental Clinic is located in the Sumner County Health Department in a space leased to the clinic for $1.00 per year by the Sumner County Commission. The clinic has over 20 dentists who donate their time to provide treatment to our patients.
