DONATE TO HEALTHCARE NETWORK

Celebrating 45 Years of Care

In recognition of our upcoming 45th anniversary in 2022, we have set a goal to raise $45,000 in 45 days. We ask you to join us in celebrating our history while looking to the future and the ways we can continue to create a safe, healthy and caring community, together.

How your gift will make an impact:

$50 provides a pediatric dental exam for one of thousands of Collier County children who need routine and preventative dental care

$100 provides a counseling session for a resident who is dealing with stressful family situations and hardships due to the pandemic

$250 provides a prenatal care visit for one of many expectant mothers who need prenatal care and support

$500 provides appointment shuttle service for 20 Immokalee residents to medical appointments who do not have cars

$1,000 helps defray the cost of staffing a health screening event for farm workers during the planting and harvesting season

Who You Help

Every day, patients of all ages, backgrounds, beliefs and experiences come to us for care. For many, the journey is not easy. They face a multitude of obstacles such as access to reliable transportation, the ability to take time off from work or other responsibilities, communication concerns, confusion about t

he healthcare system and fear and/or distrust. However, these individuals come to us because they know, at Healthcare Network, they will not be turned away and will always be treated with compassion and respect, regardless of their circumstances.

Patients like Maria.

A resident of Immokalee in her early sixties, Maria has been a patient of Healthcare Network for many years. Living on a limited budget, the organization’s sliding fee discount makes it possible for Maria to access the critical care she needs.

“Not being able to breathe is scary. It started with a nagging cough, tightness in my chest and bouts of fatigue. I kind of put it off, thinking it wasn’t serious and it would go away… but it became more frequent. When my primary care provider at Healthcare Network diagnosed me with COPD, I didn’t really know what it was, but he took time to help me understand and made sure I had the care I needed to stay healthy.

I live with COPD every day. Some days are not so good. On bad days when I have trouble breathing, I get scared and anxious, which makes breathing worse. During a visit with my medical doctor, he suggested I talk with the in-office psychologist.

At first, I was not sure, but I liked that the psychologist’s office was just down the hall. I am glad I went. She made me comfortable and taught me how to manage my anxiety. She also helped me when my mom died… Then COVID got me feeling down… she has helped me a lot over the years.

I come to the clinic for care every month. To me, the nurses and staff are like my second family. I don’t know where else I could go but I wouldn’t go anyway because my doctors here are the best.”

Stories like Maria’s are common in our community. Because of caring people like you, we are able to break barriers to care to ensure the healthcare needs of those who are vulnerable are met.

Your Support Makes an Impact

In 2020, your support was vital to providing essential primary and preventative care while also deploying a multilingual COVID-19 Response Team to address health inequities that became even more apparent during the pandemic. We also found innovative ways to reach our patients, including mobile units and telehealth visits. In total, we provided more than $15 million in uncompensated care.
