Maryview Saves the Day

Robin was so concerned that she called Maryview Healthcare Center from her hospital room. The hospital doctors who were evaluating her diabetes and resulting foot ulcer and fracture saw nothing they could do to help and were recommending her for discharge.

Knowing that her diabetes was getting out of control and that the pain in her foot was increasing, she rushed from the hospital to the Maryview Healthcare Center.

There, volunteer doctors helped fit Robin with a splint and crutches so that she could get off of her sore foot. She was also offered free medications from the Center’s medication assistance program. Free diabetic testing strips helped Robin better manage her diabetes.

Thanks to places like Maryview and to their funding partners like the Virginia Health Care Foundation, patients have a place to go when they cannot receive care elsewhere.
