Community Medical Equipment Ministry – White House Church of Christ 

White House Church of Christ located at 205 Spring St., White House, TN would like to announce our new Medical Equipment Ministry created to serve the Sumner County and Robertson County communities.

The Medical Equipment Ministry loans medical equipment Free of Charge to those in need on a short or long-term basis.

We saw a need in our community to aid caregivers and patients with medical equipment to assist in home health care and increase rehab success.

We provide equipment on a first-come, first-served basis. Some equipment and items currently available are lift chairs, wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, potty seats, shower chairs, hospital beds, and more.

We also accept cash donations or good-used equipment.

We have limited delivery services; however, for those who are unable to pick up, please call our office, and make an appointment.

It was rewarding to us, as well as the person donating, to be able to provide a hydraulic patient lift to a family with a special need’ s little girl. With this lift, grandparents will be able to help with her care; thus, freeing up time for the parents. Also, we received a call from a woman whose father was being released from rehab early with 2 broken hips and 3 broken ribs. The insurance company would only provide a wheelchair. We were able to provide her with all the equipment needed for his rehab and care.

If you need equipment, the process is simple. Please come by and fill out an information form.
