Allied Anesthesia Physicians Volunteer to Help Orange County’s Uninsured
Date:8/5/2013

Orange, CA (PRWEB) August 05, 2013

Once again, Allied Anesthesia physicians will join a team of health-care professionals providing free, low-risk, outpatient surgeries to some of Orange County’s neediest residents on Surgery Saturday, Sept. 7.

Paul Yost of Allied Anesthesia said five to seven Allied physicians participate in the event, coordinated by AccessOC, every year.

“It reminds me of why I went into medicine to begin with, to use my skills to provide needed services in the community,” Yost said. “It’s like Winston Churchill said, ‘We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.’”

Since 2007, AccessOC has mobilized more than 600 volunteers to provide more than 400 uninsured patients with surgeries and procedures valued in excess of $5 million. The procedures not only improve patient health but their quality of life as well. Many of the patients have been unable to work due to their medical conditions.

Doctors perform a variety of surgeries including: hernia repair, cataract, biopsies, gallbladder and minor gynecological.

About 30 patients are treated several times a year at five different hospitals after being screened for eligibility by participating community clinics in Orange County where about 20 percent of adults are uninsured.

“Patients are incredibly grateful for getting the procedures,” Yost said. “Some have waited months or even years for help.”
