How We Began
Dr. Dennis Gore and Dr. Umbert Hart began their medical training at University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, TX in 1980. Dr. Gore is now a General Surgeon on faculty at UTMB and Dr. Hart is an anesthesiologist in private practice in Bryan, TX. Both doctors have participated in medical missions during their years in practice. After the death of Dr. Hart's father, who was also a physician, Dr. Gore encouraged Dr. Hart and friends to form an organization that could help provide medical and surgical care to the indigent people of the island of Hispaniola, the home of Dr. Hart's family. They formed Hispaniola Medical Charity (HMC) which is now a 501(c)(3) and is collecting monetary donations as well as medicines, medical and surgical supplies and equipment.
HMC has helped donate equipment to the clinic named after Dr. Hart's father in the village of Esparanza in the Dominican Republic through willingservantministries.org and www.thesamaritanfoundationdr.com .
Help Us Obtain Equipment
Hospital Ricardo Limardo in Puerto Plata has very limited and outdated equipment. After our mission trip there, we were able to donate a cautery machine and 2 suction machines. We would like to help them obtain more equipment. Current needs are ventilators, anesthesia machines, an air conditioner for the recovery room, another cautery and 2 more suction machines. Please contact us if you can help with procuring or shipping of equipment.
