Med Mission is a ministry of Mission of Hope located in Cayce, South Carolina. We are a nonprofit (501c(3)) clinic that seeks to honor God by providing quality low cost medical care to the uninsured and the underserved in Lexington County, South Carolina.

Our Founder

Med Mission is the brainchild of Dr. Suzanne Schwab, who has worked with a similar volunteer program in Florida. Dr. Schwab saw a need to provide quality health care to individuals who cannot afford or cannot get to medical treatment.

Her desire to offer free check-ups, screenings and treatment for local residents in a caring, Christian environment started in April 2009. She feels it is possible to treat many chronic conditions rather inexpensively, if they can be detected early; thereby avoiding catastrophic care later.

Dr. Schwab is the Medical Director at VIP Health.

Mission Vision

Our Vision is to provide for the medical needs of the uninsured and the underserved in Lexington County while connecting them to existing resources in our communities; to provide patient education necessary for improved outcomes; to share Christ’s love and acceptance; to partner with area churches and hospitals to create a network of volunteers, making this a free clinic.
