The emergence of COVID-19 this year has made one thing clear: The health of our entire community is at risk when the most vulnerable among us lack access to good care.
It has also caused disruption, fear and isolation for many. In this holiday season, please hold in your hearts the patients and friends who have suffered. Your support has and continues to lift them up.
We'd like to introduce you to Tricia. She's just the kind of patient your donations can help.
Years ago, Tricia leapt to defend her beagle when it was suddenly attacked by a Great Dane Bullmastiff. She was injured, but she had no health insurance. So Tricia went home and bandaged 13 puncture wounds on her hands by herself.
She could never have imagined the fiery pain she would face in the years ahead.
By 2018, Tricia was in constant pain and losing hand function due to inflammation of those old injuries.
That’s when a referral to Project Access Northwest made all the difference. Tricia was able to see a specialist and receive life-changing surgery to treat her carpal tunnel syndrome — at no cost to her.

For more than a decade, we have teamed up with community partners and sponsors to remove the barriers and increase access for all to medical and dental services. In an ever-changing health care environment, our core competence in care coordination remains critically important — and an important element of all our programs. From Premium Assistance to our new Health Home program, we constantly evolve to meet the needs of patients.
By ensuring that a specialist sees a patient with the right paperwork, imaging and lab reports, we create an efficient visit, maximizing the use of a specialist’s time. We often hear from providers that they wish all patients were managed as well as Project Access Northwest patients.
By helping patients find care in a provider’s office instead of a hospital emergency room, we help improve efficiency, lower costs and improve patients’ continuity of care.
By enabling patients to continue their insurance coverage through premium assistance, we help them continue to access the care they need while helping hospitals manage their charity care
A recent study of our gastroenterology patients revealed that $325 in care coordination returns $3,480 in treatment—a 1070% return on investment!
Whether it’s a new hip or knee, a gastroenterology procedure, or treatment for a painful and infected tooth, providing desperately needed specialty care can change someone’s life. Patients who get they care they need are often able to return to work and take an active part in family life. Our donors help patients “get their lives back again.”
Project Access Northwest is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Your financial support enables us to keep this important community service available for those in need.
