The Hope Clinic is a free medical facility located in Jasper, AL. The clinic is located in a former doctor's office in Jasper.
Since the Jasper clinic first opened its doors in January 2006, a small paid staff and an army of volunteers have provided quality primary care and preventative medical services in a positive, loving, and caring environment.
The Hope Clinic is a true community effort with support coming from individual citizens, the Walker Area Community Foundation, area churches and Walker Baptist Medical Center. Its design is to help individuals who simply fall through the cracks: our hardworking neighbors who can't afford health insurance.

Employee Benevolent Fund
As a faith-based ministry, employees of Baptist Health System answer the call of healing and caring for those in need. The need may be a fellow employee whose home has burned, a patient who has no money to buy medications, or a broader need addressed by a local social agency in the communities we serve. The call of compassion to help another is heard.
In 1964, that compassion led employees of Baptist Health System to establish an Employee Benevolent Fund (EBF). The goal of EBF is to promote employee interest in financial support of various approved charitable agencies, emergency relief programs in the community, and for emergency assistance to fellow BHS employees and patients at our hospitals.
EBF funds are distributed through various EBF committees, which are responsible for administering the contributions. These committees as well as the EBF Executive Committee are made up of BHS employees.
Since its inception, EBF employee volunteers have helped countless numbers of co-workers, patients, local charitable agencies, emergency relief programs and organizations of the United Way.
The passion to care for others is particularly strong in BHS employees. Our commitment to answer the call often takes us beyond the boundaries of our hospitals and office buildings. The Mission 2020 fund was created to support this commitment.
The sole purpose of the Mission 2020 fund is to provide financial grants for BHS employees who are personally involved in Mission-related volunteer activities. Since its inception in 1992, over 200 grants have been awarded; most for medical mission trips overseas.
Through Mission 2020, the Baptist Health Foundation has had the privilege of partnering with projects in Russia, Nigeria, Guatemala, Israel, Germany, Romania, Argentina, Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, Brazil, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Belize, Venezuela, and more. Partnerships within our borders include Habitat For Humanity, Magic City Harvest, Young Teen Asthma Camp, various church building projects, and others.
The work of the Mission 2020 Fund is made possible through the generous gifts of BHS employee and the Employee Benevolent Fund. Funded projects address human needs-physical, mental, or spiritual - as reflected in the BHS Mission Statement.
