Bill Grimes and several of his PA students from UK

Students from the Physician Assistant Program at the University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences provided two beautiful UK baskets for our annual Fish Fry and Auction which was held on October 5th.  They are also doing other fund raising for the NewHope Clinic.   Many thanks and blessings to all these wonderful young people who are demonstrating the goodness and altruism that is so necessary to be good health care providers.  They will graduate in 2020.

These PA students are also spending time with the staff of the NewHope Clinic learning how to be compassionate and competent health care providers.   These groups are from both the Morehead Campus (at MSU) and the Lexington Campus (at UK). 

"Bringing Hope and Care, one patient at a time"

Have Insurance?  Deductible too high?

Can't afford to go to the Doctor ?  

Maybe we can help.   We are now seeing patients who have insurance but cannot use it because they can't afford the co-pay and/or deductible.   Come and see us any Thursday at NewHope Clinic, 41 S. Court Street, in Owingsville, and we will discuss your situation and help you out if we can.  

We are here and are eager to serve the health care needs of the local people who simply cannot afford it.  



Kroger Community Rewards

Now you can donate to NewHope Ministries, Inc., by registering (Or re-registering - which is necessary yearly in August) your Kroger Card and designating NewHope as your organization.

Here is how to do it:  go to  and register your Kroger Card and then go to Community Rewards and pick NewHope from the list of charities.  NewHope is listed as number DH807.

Now everytime you use your Kroger Card, Kroger will donate part of your purchase back to NewHope.  This is so much easier than using your Kroger Gift Card and having to put more money in it everytime you went to Kroger.   Just using your Kroger Card when you shop will be enough to donate to our cause.  It is a Win-Win situation.

Article - Starting a Free Clinic in a Rural Area by Bill Grimes


NewHope Clinic is a free clinic owned and operated by NewHope Ministries, Inc.  NewHope Ministries is a non-denominational Christian ministry which was instituted to provide access to health care for the un-insured citizens of Bath, Rowan, Morgan, Menifee, Montgomery and surrounding counties.  The present building at 41 S. Court Street in Owingsville was renovated over a three month period from July to October 2000.  There was a tremendous amount of community support, hours of personal volunteer labor,  sweat, tears and prayers of many citizens of Bath and surrounding counties.

In 2007 the clinic expanded into an adjoining building and added more exam rooms.  This building and the existing building were given to us by the Salt Lick Deposit Bank at no charge.  Salt Lick Deposit Bank has also paid all of our utilities since opening day in October of 2000.  Since Peoples Bank has purchased the Salt Lick Bank, they have continued to give us this building rent free and have continued to pay our utility bills.  THANK YOU PEOPLES BANK!!

 A Special Thank You!!
