A resolution recognizing the 30th Anniversary of Siloam Health.

WHEREAS, this year, Siloam Health celebrates its 30th anniversary of serving Nashville's uninsured, underserved, and culturally marginalized populations neighbors in need, changing lives, families, and communities along the way; and

WHEREAS, in recognition of 30 years of health care in Nashville, Siloam will kick off a year-long celebration. Throughout the year, the community is invited to reflect on Siloam's history as they recognize special milestones and key events that have resulted in a volunteer-supported clinic that provides affordable, high-quality health care to Nashville's most medically vulnerable; and

WHEREAS, the mission of Siloam Health is to serve those in need through healthcare, with patients coming from more than 80 countries and speaking over 70 languages; and

WHEREAS, Siloam's Community Health efforts expand its mission beyond the four walls of the clinic, empowering immigrants from all over the world who now call Nashville home. Siloam's education initiatives are changing the face of health care by training medical students across a variety of specialties in the art of culturally sensitive, whole-person care; and

WHEREAS, over the years Siloam Health has had a front-row seat to amazing stories of hope and healing from its patients. Those stories helped to drive Siloam's mission forward and has enabled them to grow and expand. In 2005, Siloam found a home in a new clinic located in the Melrose area of Nashville; and

WHEREAS, the key elements to the success of Siloam Health have been and always will be their love and compassion for their patients, and their committed resolve to deliver essential healthcare to Nashville's uninsured and underserved patients; and

WHEREAS, it is fitting and proper that the Metropolitan Council recognize the 30th anniversary of Siloam Health in Nashville.
