St. John Health System, a part of Ascension, will host its first Oklahoma Medical Mission at Home: A Day of Free Healthcare on Saturday, March 30 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Eastland Baptist Church Family Life Center, 2001 S. 129th E. Ave. in Tulsa.
The event is part of Ascension’s Medical Mission at Home program and is presented in collaboration with Good Samaritan Health Services, In His Image Family Medicine Residency and dozens of community providers and organizations.
Free services available to the community will include:
- Medical care, health screenings and immunizations
- Pregnancy tests and ultrasounds

- Car seat checks (10 a.m. to noon)
- Health insurance information and enrollment assistance
- Community resources and health education
- Connection to follow-up care
More than 250 clinical and non-clinical volunteers have signed up to participate.
“As a Catholic health ministry, St. John has always prioritized our Mission of serving those most vulnerable in our community,” said Bill Weeks, St. John Health System’s Chief Operating Officer. “Medical Mission at Home is a tangible way for us to serve by bringing these services directly to those who need it.”
As a lead-up to the March 30 event, St. John Health System associates will also be invited to donate diapers, formula and new shoes March 1-27. Items collected will be available to Medical Mission at Home attendees.
“Our associates are compassionate and they love to give,” said Ron Tremblay, St. John Health System’s Director of Spiritual Care. “The diaper, formula and shoe drive will be an opportunity for those who may not be able to volunteer at Medical Mission at Home to show their support for our community.”
