Health Care Network has been a service like no other! The office is small which makes it a more intimate experience for the patients. There is always a need and work to be done, and the staff assists in translating and helping the volunteers provide quality care. I would recommend Health Care Network to anybody.

I am a current board member and so impressed with the effort of staff and volunteers to meet a need for medical care in our community. Serving those less fortunate is a calling and Health Care Network delivers services with the highest level of professionalism and dedication. The Racine community is a much better place because of Health Care Network and other non profits in the area.

I have been a member of the HCN Board of Directors for several years now and it is a very well run organization. Alison and her team have been addressing a major gap in the Racine community by providing healthcare services to underserved communities. Without the HCN, there would be thousands of people not receiving healthcare services.

The Health Care Network is a huge asset for our community in Racine. The leadership, staff, and volunteers are dedicated to serving their patients compassionately. I've been on their board for over a year and I've always been impressed with what great stewards they are of their resources. Also, the significant amount of partnering they do with the region's large healthcare organizations lets them have an expanded footprint with more specialty options and allows them to stretch their funds much further.

I have had the privilege of being the manager of the Wisconsin Association of Free and Charitable Clinics for a little over a year. The work done by Health Care Network Inc is nothing short of amazing. The staff and volunteers that shape this organization are very driven and passionate in the work they do. They not only help serve the people in there community but the executive director is also more than willing to help other free clinics across the state with issues or question they themselves may have. This is an outstanding organization.

I first heard about what the healthcare network does in the community from a friend who uses their services. From this referral I got the dental care that I cant afford if not for the healthcare network. It is very good that such an organization exists in this community. Forever I am grateful for the work that they do for me.

The Health Care Network is an integral part of health care in Racine. Since the inception in the late 1980's the Health Care Network has been pivotal in caring for families not covered by heath insurance or medicaid. Our family has always provided financial assistance to this most worthy non profit organization. Racine is a better place with the help of the Health Care Network.

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 am a volunteer and find it personally rewarding to provide dental care to Racine’s underserved. Staff are especially helpful making my contribution possible. Without this facility emergency rooms would be more crowded and necessary oral care unavailable.

I first became aware of Health Care Network over 10 years ago when a family member needed medical assistance. At the time I was so happy my loved one could receive the help they needed. Fast forward 10 years and Health Care Network is in my sights again as an organization I refer fellow community members to. They have a dedicated staff that treat their patients with dignity and respect and an amazing group of volunteer providers. Their new office space is welcoming and is sure to help patients feel cared for and respected.

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!

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.

I am privileged to volunteer at HCN as a Chiropractor. I see first hand the dedication and hard work of the staff, directors and many volunteers. They have always made me feel welcome and are eager to help me share my skills with the needy patients there. Racine, WI is very fortunate to have this facility.
