Currently providing care for close to 2000 patients; Renewed Hope strives to meet the needs of uninsured and under-insured adults living in Allegan County through providing medical, emotional, and spiritual care in a holistic environment by utilizing the skills of volunteer staff and medical personnel.
Using for its example, the renewal of covenants in the Bible, Renewed Hope renewed it's covenant with the Lord. That promise involved rededicating the Clinic, its staff and volunteers to model themselves after God's calling - to give care and support to those who are sick and in need of healing.

How the Clinic Works
The majority of staff at Renewed Hope are volunteers; from physicians to nurses and some office personnel.
