Diana Abt  Board Secretary
     It is our honor and a  pleasure to welcome Diana Abt as the new member and secretary of The House Portable Medical Care Board.  
She brings strong qualifications and unmeasured commitment to our team.  And most important, a heart to serve those in need, as a follower of our Lord Jesus Christ.
As the Board of Trustees, we are excited to continue to serve our community in a unique way, and to bring her as  part of our growing team.  We also want to thank Mrs. Brenda Velez, for  her work and support as our past secretary.

     Es un honor el darle la bienvenida a Diana Abt como nuevo miembro y secretaria  de nuestra  junta de directores .  En adición a traer excelentes calificaciones, su compromiso inigualable a servir a los más necesitados se debe a su gran amor por Jesús, nuestro Señor. 
Como miembros de The House Portable Medical Care,  sirviendo a nuestra comunidad, nos honramos con su presencia en este, nuestro equipo.  Mil gracias a Brenda Velez, nuestra pasada secretaria por su gran trabajo y esfuerzo durante su término.

Thanks both for serving in this capacity and make our mission come true.  


Dr. Maribel Aviles, M.D.

 
 



We are excited! We have become an  officially recognized not for profit 501c3 entity by the IRS.  And as such, donations  made to The House Portable can be tax deductible, a help  for you and your family if you want to claim it as you help others.
We have started our Let's Get The House Rolling Campaign, as a way to raise the money to build our "Mobile House"
Visit our Facebook Page soon for details on how you can be part of this exciting and powerful community and medical outreach.
Let's give "Rise to Healthier Communities" together!
Thanks much,
Dr. M. Aviles

We are working hard to bring that mobile to you for ongoing medical health care.  This is wonderful news , as we align ourselves with our vision of reaching you for your medical care!  
This will affect how you schedule your appointments as our last appointment day will be July 3st 2012.  We hope to resume patient care by Winter 2012.
Until then, keep posted via our Website.
Any urgent medical issue should be evaluated and treated at the nearest emergency room.  Try to establish care with another primary care doctor according to your need.
Thanks to all of you for your patience and for trusting your medical care to us,

Dr. M.Aviles, M.D.
Estamos trabajando arduamente en pos de nuestro vehículo móvil de manera que comencemos a evaluar a nuestros pacientes de acuerdo a nuestra visión original:  la de  llegar a nuestras comunidades!
Esto afectará la manera en la cual podrá atenderse con nosotros.  Nuestra última cita disponible será el dia 31 de julio del 2012.  Esperamos contar con nuestro móvil en el Invierno 2012 y comenzar a atender nuevamente, pero mientras tanto debe dirigirse a sala de Emergencia para cualquier problema médico, o establecer cuidado de salud con un proveedor de salud.
Mientras tanto, mantengase informado visitando nuestro Web periódicamente.
Gracias por su paciencia y por su confianza en nosotros,

Dr. Maribel Aviles, M.D.
 
 
As we reorganize and bring all the resources for The House Portable to operate at its full, we will be treating only patients that have been established with us.  We expect to resume evaluation and treatment for new patients by Fall 2012.  Please keep posted; and thanks for your patience.

This is our focus:  that portion of the latino community who may be afraid, impoverished and facing language barriers to access health care.
A community with health disparities in need of a cultural approach and big ears in the planning of their medical treatment.
And contrary to what this picture could suggest, not every of them is bold enough to extend their hands to ask.
This is why we spent our third meeting planning our  5K race fundraiser:   For Them!  We are focused! We are ready!  We want to Run For Them and raise the monies to offer free care, to those who wouldn't be able otherwise.  Would you help us?
Stay  Tuned for event's details, and RUN FOR THE HOUSE!  


¿Nuestro enfoque?  Esa porción de la comunidad latina en los E.U. con escasos recursos,  quizás atemorizados , enfrentando barreras de lenguaje para recibir cuidado de salud y quienes necesitan tratamiento médico tomando en cuenta la cultura y estilo latino.  Y  contrario a lo que esta foto podría sugerir, no toda nuestra gente se atreve a extender su mano para pedir.
Por esta razón dedicamos ésta, nuestra tercera reunión , a planificar el próximo evento para levantar fondos mediante nuestra carrera 5k. " Por ellos... Para Ellos"  queremos Correr y así proveer cuidado médico gratis a quienes no pueden hacerlo de otra forma.  Estamos listos y enfocados.   Intégrate y Corre(o camina) con nosotros en  "Run for The House" .  Mantente al tanto  de los detalles de este evento y anímate a hacerlo por Nuestra Gente, Nuestros Hermanos!

Let's talk about the minimum cost for a PAP smear collection for a patient without insurance:
1.At a Private Gynecologist (with office visit):  $300* minimum
2. At a Private Family Practitioner : $175*
3. At a funded charitable organization:  $20
4. At The House Portable Medical Care: same as #3, only when    we become funded by grants.   
*These prices do not include pathology cost at local laboratory ranging from $75-$125
IN THE INTERIM WE NEED YOUR HELP!  Until we become a  formal  5013c organization we'll need your donations to make it easier for our patients to get it for free!

CONSIDER COVERING THE COST OF A PAP FOR A WOMAN WITHOUT INSURANCE.  WITH ONLY $45 YOU CAN DO IT.  GO TO OUR WEBSITE HOME PAGE TODAY AND DONATE!
