About Philip Kong, FNP-C

Family Nurse Practitioner

When did you start working for Christ Community?

September 2019

Why did you choose to join Christ Community?

I chose to join CCHS because of its mission and vision. The most important thing to me in this life is Jesus Christ. He is utterly amazing, and I get to share the hope found in him everyday and I’m allowed to be myself around patients. It’s a huge privilege for me to be able to do this at CCHS while also providing affordable, quality primary health care to the underserved. Growing up, I rarely ever had the opportunity to go to the doctor because my family couldn’t afford it. Health was a source of tremendous stress because if we ever got sick, we didn’t know how we could make ends meet. Now being able to help patients in this is so rewarding.

Also, for the opportunity to learn and work with so many amazing healthcare providers and staff. It’s great when you have a work family.

Where did you go to school?

What is your favorite Bible verse?

“Fear not, for I am with you;
