Physicians Reach Out (PRO) is a network of volunteer providers donating free, comprehensive care for low-income, uninsured residents of Mecklenburg County since 2004. This extensive network of 1,600 providers ensures access to a primary care doctor, as well as many different specialists including cardiologists, oncologists, psychiatrists, orthopedists, dentists and much more, serving more than 4,000 patients each year. Each year, they donate more than $33 million in medical services and save the community $10 million in uncompensated hospital and emergency room care.
Care Ring also focuses on those external factors that affect health. We have a case management team comprised of nurses and social workers who work with clients to ensure they have transportation to appointments, understand their diagnosis and medication regimens, and are connected to resources for identified social needs that affect health, such as housing, food and utility assistance.
