Methodist Mansfield Medical Center presented the 2021 Community Hero Award to the Linda Nix Clinic, part of Mansfield Mission Center, for providing free health care services to the uninsured in the Mansfield community. The clinic at 901 W. Broad St. promotes physical, financial, and relational well-being to Mansfield resident through a volunteer staff lead by medical director Dr. Darin Charles.

“They saved my life,” said resident Tochia Anikwe.
Anikwe and her daughter Lauren received both medical and dental services and were relieved of a financial burden.
“The center was very helpful to my family as a single mother in providing resources, educational programs, and treating me like a family member," Anikwe said.
“Methodist Mansfield Medical Center’s No. 1 priority is to improve the health of the community,” says Juan Fresquez, president of Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. “We are proud to give back to the community through sponsorships and volunteering in the community.”
