One of the family.
The best thing about HCMC, according to Alma de Cortez, is that we treat everyone like family. It's why she chose to have her three kids here and continues to bring them to the Pediatric Clinic for ongoing care. Enrique, Sergio, and Samantha value their close relationships with primary care provider and Nurse Practitioner Holly Pike, who makes them feel comfortable and cared for at each visit. "I saw the caring and attention they gave me and my kids, and it inspired me to give back," said Alma, who also volunteers at HCMC. She dedicates time at the on-site Food Shelf as well as the Children's Summer Meal Program, which provides free breakfast and lunch to kids in the downtown campus cafeteria. Alma refers to the kids she serves as her kids, too. "I enjoy talking to them and seeing them laugh, smile, and be happy."
