Mercy Children's Clinic treats Hispanic children without health insurance

"When 2-year-old Mariana Garcia got a hacking cough, mother Ana Cruz knew where she could take her and it wouldn't matter that they are uninsured and don't speak English - Mercy Children's Clinic."

"The faith-based pediatric healthcare ministry treats children from birth to 18 years of age and encourages care for those without insurance or who are enrolled in TennCare. It's treated more than 4,500 children with help in great part to runners and walkers each year at the Franklin Classic."

"'It's very important because the children get treatment,' Cruz said with the help of Veronica Cropper, the clinic's Hispanic Patient Advocate."
