In 1993, We Care Jacksonville, Inc. was organized as a collaborative effort by George S. Trotter, MD, the Duval County Medical Society, Duval County Health Department, local churches, hospitals, and community organizations. The goal was to provide donated health care to uninsured adults living at or below 200% of Federal Poverty Level. As a result, a community partnership of health care professionals, volunteers, and health systems was established. This partnership resulted in donated time, skills and services to those in need of proper medical attention.
Today, with a network of over 500 specialty care volunteer providers, partnerships with the six major health systems in Duval County, collaboration with a network of 11 local free and charitable clinics, and community support, WeCareJax continues to thrive. With over 30 years behind us and many more to go, we remain dedicated to one over-arching goal: Connecting Patients to Compassionate Care.
