As a nurse, Janna Gardner understood the critical difference that high quality medical care can make in the life of a person: between life and death, or employment and disability. As a person of faith, she felt a passion to treat every person with God-given dignity and worth. Faced with the reality that healthcare and wellbeing was simply out of reach for far too many of her neighbors, she founded Healing Hands Ministries in 2005 to provide compassionate, accessible, quality medical and dental care in the Dallas community.
The Healing Hands Ministries of today is a rich medical home capable of caring for a patient through their lifetime. Our medical home is built on relationships rather than logging transactions. Healing Hands Ministries is creating an ecosystem for empowered health by improving access and delivery of healthcare, providing education to help maintain improved lifestyles and inspiring others to take responsibility for their own health.
