Hope Family Health Center provides primary, preventative medical services to the uninsured residents of the Rio Grande Valley. In house medical services are provided by volunteer medical physicians, physician assistants and specialists who have their own practices and see patients at HOPE pro bono to ensure health is provided to those most in need. In-house services include basic medical care, diabetes treatment and education, physicals and non-emergency medical care. Our staff Case Manager, Medical Services Coordinator and our Volunteer Medical Director provide referrals to community medical partners. Referrals may include those to a pediatrician, specialist (gastroenterologist, gynecologist, urologist, etc) referrals, referrals to help identify their ailment such as an x-ray or any other referral our physicians may have that may benefit the patient’s health.
Medical Services at HOPE are on a donation basis. A $5-$10 donation for medical visits are encouraged
Prior to initial visits, patients re required to have lab work completed. Patients may also be referred to specialists or may need additional procedures according to doctor’s orders that cannot be completed at the clinic. The patient is responsible for this cost. However, should any potential, new or current patient need assistance with the cost of referrals or lab work they will be referred to the Case Manager or Director who will attempt to secure necessary funds.
