WKNO-TV presents a half-hour documentary on the history and impact of an extraordinary Memphis-area health service organization, Christ Community Health Services. Christ Community annually delivers health care to more than 100,000 in some of Memphis' most in-need communities – southwest Memphis, Frayser, Orange Mound, Binghampton and Hickory Hill – through seven medical/dental clinics, mobile medical services and outreach programs.

"Some physicians ask why I chose this, but it's a decision I'll never second-guess," said founding physician Rick Donlon. "For a number of our young physicians, clinical rotations with us during residency altered their trajectory. Some have chosen to care for the needy, and maybe that wasn't their plan before."

Christ Community: A Ministry of Care premiered in May 2010. The broadcast of the documentary is sponsored by Baptist Memorial Health Care; Grinder, Taber and Grinder, Inc; and Tennessee Primary Care Association.
