Healing Hands Ministry (HHM) Health is adding new services to its offerings, including expanded programs for women, children, and several additional facilities.

HHM is a medical service charity that seeks to provide “accessible, affordable and compassionate care” to people who might not be insured or unable to afford care. Roughly 52% of HHM’s operating budget comes from taxpayer funding. The federal government issued the organization $4.8 million of grant money in 2021 alone.

The organization will now support a new imaging center that offers mammograms, sonograms, a child’s therapy playroom, dental areas, a nutrition education center, and a new vision center. A new pharmacy will also open up by the end of the year.

HHM Health used to refer people for mammograms and sonograms to other hospitals, such as Texas Presbyterian, but will no longer need to once the new center opens.

HHM Health was founded in 2005 by Janna Gardner and referred to itself as a patient-focused community health center, according to its website. “Healing Hands Ministries was founded to provide compassionate, accessible, quality medical care to the Dallas community,” the website reads.

HHM Health Chief Development Officer Jean Buys explained, “The need for healthcare is huge … People are trying to decide between feeding their children or going to the doctor, so we make both possible.”

HHM Health, with the assistance of federal taxpayer funds, serves more than 15,000 people annually.

The health center recently celebrated a grand opening for its third floor Thursday evening, Lake Highlands Advocate reported.

“Having a mammography machine at this discounted rate is so incredibly meaningful,” Gay Donnell Willis, Dallas council member for District 13, said during the event. “I’m very proud to be here tonight. Busy schedule, no, this is where I need to be.”

HHM CEO Brian Hawkins presented pediatrician Dr. Larry Gray with an award and plaque for having more than 50 years of experience caring for children.

“We started at Healing Hands when it was just a little clinic. I started as a volunteer for the Dallas County Medical Society. We found that the people here were so gracious and grateful,” Gray said during the event.
