I am a former board member and longtime donor to Health Care Network. HCN is a well run organization that benefits all of the Racine County community. Those who benefit directly from the health appointments are the most obvious winners, but we all benefit from less emergency room and walk in clinic visits by those that are able to see doctors as illnesses occur and not wait until illnesses have become catastrophic.

The staff at HCN is an amazing group that run a quality organization on a "shoestring" budget. I am very proud to be a Health Care Network donor.

My first experience with Health Care Network came about when several friends asked for volunteers at a Hawaiian Luau fundraiser in 2003 and 14 years later, I am now a proud donor, volunteer and board member of the organization. Health care is a privilege that many of us are fortunate to have and for those who don’t, Health Care Network steps in. Our community doctors, dentists, nurses and health care professionals donate their own time and willingly share their knowledge to provide expert care and treatment to clients. Alison and her wonderful team treat clients with respect, professionalism and compassion as they help clients navigate the sometimes challenging health care system. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year showcases Health Care Network’s excellent work and commitment within our community!

This is the 30th anniversary of the Health Care Network. This organization has been an integral part of Racine's nonprofits. The number of individuals they have served through has been vital for these individuals who could not have coverage elsewhere. This is a great organization and will always have an important part in our community..

I have been a volunteer provider for medical/surgical services since 1990. It has been a very gratifying experience. The mission to serve those patients in our community who are most vulnerable when they do not qualify for employer provided insurance or government provided assistance. The patients have always been very grateful.

I have been rewarded with hugs, cheers, and tears. Of all of the 100s of patients that I have had the pleasure to take care of over the years, the most reporting one was a woman in her late 40s who was working in housekeeping for a local hotel. Her employer did not provide any health insurance and her income was too great to qualify for governmental assistance. She developed a pulsatile mass in her neck and was found to have a carotid body tumor. She needed surgical resection and vascular reconstruction. I was able to enlist the services of a partner who was also a volunteer provider and who was expert in this area. Patient had a successful surgery and very successful outcome. The best part, however, was about 6-8 months later when I was exiting an elevator in the hospital and low and behold, she was there in a hospital provided housekeeping uniform. She proceeded to tell me that she was so grateful for the care she received and arranged through the Health Care Network that she chose to apply for a position in the environmental services department of the hospital. She was hired and therefore had access to health insurance, and subsequently retired from the hospital organization some 15 years later.

In addition to being a volunteer provider, I have been happy to serve as a Board member for the past 5 years and will be completing my 2nd and final term next year as an active board member. It has been a privilege to continue to support this organization and continue its Legacy from its inception. It clearly deserved the recognition as one of President George W. Bush's "1000 Points of Light" .

The staff here is always professional and courteous. I've donated to this amazing agency a few times and each time the staff makes sure I understand how valuable the donations are. I'm never made to feel out of place when I go in as even the Executive Director goes out of her way to welcome and thank everyone. If anyone is looking to volunteer or donate medical or office supplies, I strongly recommend giving to Health Care Network.
