Since 2011, PATC has provided over 2,100 patients with their specialty and surgical needs. Our most common referrals are for general surgery (hernias and gallbladders), gynecological surgery, orthopedics, gastroenterology, and ENT services. Many of our patients have lost or are in danger of losing their jobs due to their medical condition. We coordinate the physicians, hospital, anesthesia, and all ancillary needs that are all donated to the patients. In addition to their medical needs, we assess how PATC can assist with their primary care and social service needs. To date, PATC, has coordinated over $18 million in free, donated medical care to Tarrant County's low-income uninsured.
Since our medical services are donated, our programs costs are minimal. Your donations help cover the staff to administer the program, translation and transportation services, office expenses, and the occasional out of pocket expense that PATC may need to cover for a patient. The average cost of one patient completing our process is $1,000.
