DMC is a truly unique health care facility, which has at its foundation, solid Christian principals in every aspect of patient care. I have worked in health care for almost 35 years, and never experienced such truly Catholic/Christian health care, even in the Catholic hospitals I've observed. Every patient and every procedure is treated with the same utmost care to promote healing and recovery. This remarkable health care facility should be held up as a model for all health care institutions.

I have known and contributed to this organization for many years. These are the most selfless professionals to be found in the health care field serving impoverished mothers and infants in their most crucial time of need.

I donate to Divine Mercy Care because I believe in their life-saving mission and because 5 of my six grandchildren were cared for by the wonderful docs and nurses there. When I donate to Divine Mercy Care I know that mothers without money will be given the same loving, competent care that my daughters and daughter-in-law and their babies received, and that nobody who comes to them will be turned away due to lack of ability to pay. Lives of precious moms and babies are saved there, and I want to be a part of that.

Doing God's work in Northern Virginia!! It is important that more OBGYN practices follow their consciences and practice medicine that benefits all their patients, not just the grown ones.

This non-profit allows women to bring their babies to full term when they may not have had a choice and would consider aborting due to lack of resources. May God's spirit stay upon them. All of the staff are devoted to their paitents while money is surley not a concern or even a factor in what they are doing and the services they provide. I will continue to donate funds for their continued work.

Dr. B. and all the staff and doctors at Divine Mercy Care are dedicated to helping ALL patients in need of Ob/GYN care regardless of ability to pay. When other doctors are turning away Medicare, medicaid and uninsured patients, Divine Mercy Care greets them with open arms and the very best of medical care for the whole person. I'm proud to be associated with such selfless giving!

Ourstanding OB-GYN practice. Women travel from five states to have their babies delivered at Tepeyac Family Center. Tepeyac doctors see patients with insurance and those who do not have commercial insurance. The bedside manners of the Tepeyac doctors is something that should be considered as the industry standard.

DMC is an example of what medicine should be and do. They not only give the best of care to women, but also open their arms persons in need of medical care. This is not mandated by a government agency, but by the heart. The staff also prays with their patients ...all patients, born and unborn, are truly cherished by DMC.
