At Servants Heart Clinic, Dr. Tim Irwin serves many roles: board member, volunteer physician, medical student supervising physicians, team leader for various committees, and much more. Outside of his busy practice and other volunteer commitments and his family; Dr. Irwin is the backbone of Servant Hearts Clinic. He continually works to increase quality care for all patients with innovative ideas, especially with utilizing future physicians. Patients are always at the center of all decisions he makes.
Servant Hearts Clinic is a free, faith-based clinic to assist the uninsured or the underinsured in our community. Services provided include medical services (such as urgent care and early disease management), mental health, pastoral care, and social work. Servant Hearts Clinic is open every Monday at 5:30 p.m.
Frani Kieffer, Executive Director of Servants Heart Clinic said, “Dr. Tim Irwin goes above and beyond. He is a respected cardiologist with a young family. Even with his busy schedule, Servant Hearts Clinic is his passion. He is dedicated to the mission of Servant Hearts Clinic and ensuring it continues and thrives. Whether he is assisting with IT issues, recruiting physicians, or taking care of patients who have no other access to health care, Dr. Irwin is making his community a better place for everyone.”
We asked Dr. Irwin to share more about his volunteerism, in his own words.
I have lived here in the Greater Yankton area since 2012
I began volunteering in 2013 and joined the board in 2013
Volunteer work is enjoyable because I worked for a free health care clinic during college, medical school and residency. After moving to Yankton, I immediately started volunteering. Once established with Servant Hearts Clinic I joined the Board of Directors and implemented a medical student model of care to the organization. Providing a free health care clinic while teaching the next generation of physicians is extremely rewarding.
Thank you, Dr. Irwin for your extraordinary efforts.
