Bob Mann Medical Clinic
Dr. Bob Mann Medical Clinic
For more than 20 years, the Dr. Bob Mann Medical Clinic has provided quality health care at no cost to low-income residents of Arlington, the Tarrant County portion of Grand Prairie and surrounding communities of Kennedale, Mansfield, Pantego and Dalworthington Gardens.
In August, 1986, Mission Arlington® began by offering Bible Studies in low-income multi-housing communities. It was evident that they’re needs went beyond spiritual. The Dr. Bob Mann Medical Clinic opened in response to this need.
Up until 2001, the clinic operated 6 hours per week. In September 2001, we were able to hire a Nurse Practitioner to direct the clinic full-time. This leadership position has improved the clinic’s efficiency and ability to provide quality health care. Andrea Wilson has served as our Clinic Director since 2001.
Through 2009 the clinic was open twenty hours per week on average and saw over 140 low-income and homeless children and adults weekly. In January of 2010, the Lord helped Mission Arlington® to open the clinic full-time, Monday through Friday each week and on Tuesday evenings. We anticipate being able to see many more patients each week.
The clinic is a collaboration of medical doctors, nurses, churches, pharmacies, drug supply companies, retired medical professionals and other interested volunteers. The Executive Director of Mission Metroplex®, the Board of Directors, the Mission Metroplex® Medical Advisory Committee, and the Dr. Bob Mann Medical Clinic Director oversee the program.
The Dr. Bob Mann Medical Clinic is one of the few alternatives for many Arlington area residents who cannot afford insurance or proper medical care.
Currently, we are experiencing a growth in the number of people who need medical services. Most pressing is the immediate need for volunteer doctors to expand the resources of the clinic and meet the needs of the increasing number of patients.
We need doctors and nurses from every field to assist us in serving the medical needs of the underserved population. The Mission Arlington®/Mission Metroplex® Medical Clinic provides quality health care and medical education to promote health.
The Clinic also assists patients in accessing available health care programs in the community. The clinic opens each morning, Monday-Friday at 9:00 a.m. and stays open as long as volunteer doctors are available. The clinic also opens on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. For more information, contact Andrea Wilson, FNP, Medical Director or Jean M. Richerson, Clinic Administrator at 817-277-9597

Financial Support: With available funds, the clinic would be able to hire additional paid personnel, allowing them to accept more new patients each week and reduce waiting time for visits. In order to continue providing the highest level of medical care possible, we also need funds to purchase and provide medicines and other non-reusable equipment.

The clinic is located at the Mission Arlington main offices and opens to see patients on a first come/first serve basis at 9:00am Monday – Friday, and at 6:00pm on Tuesdays. When volunteer doctors are available, the clinic will be open at other times as well.
