The mission of PediPlace is to make healthcare a reality for every kid. How do we do that with so many uninsured and underinsured children? Well, we have to start at the local level and PediPlace does that. Instead of going to an emergency room just when they are sick, PediPlace gives the kids in its area a doctor's office to go to when they are sick or well. It accepts kids with Medicaid, kids without insurance and even kids who have insurance but it has high deductibles or it otherwise leaves them exposed. I have been proud to have been a part of PediPlace for seventeen years in one capacity or another whether its volunteer, donor or board member. When you go into the office and see how kids are treated the same as you would at any doctor's office across the country, you see that it is possible to make healthcare a reality for evey kid.
