Thank you to the Triangle hospitals for providing medical and financial support to Alliance Medical Ministry and our patients.
WakeMed Health and Hospitals works in close partnership with Alliance by funding follow-up care services for patients discharged from the WakeMed Emergency Department, and by providing case management support and digital translation services.
Donald Gintzig, CEO
We are honored to partner with an exceptional organization like Alliance Medical Ministry, whose mission and dedication to this community aligns closely with the work we do at WakeMed. Through our partnership of many years, we have been able to better meet the health needs of those in our community who have limited access to quality care. I am proud of what we have accomplished and look forward to working together for many years as we strive to improve the health of our community.

Blue Ridge Dermatology has supported Alliance Medical Ministry patients for over ten years. In 2017, Alliance directly referred 84 patients to Blue Ridge Dermatology for skin concerns and diagnostic evaluation of skin issues for no charge to the patient.
Kristy Kearns, Practice Manager
For over 10 years, we have been honored to partner with Alliance Medical Ministry in the care of their patients' dermatologic needs. It has been so rewarding to be a small part of their far-reaching contribution to our community. When we were thinking of doing a skin cancer screening for the community, they were a natural partner and exceeded any of our expectations on the evening of our screening with their thoughtfulness, kindness, competency, and efficiency. We look forward to more opportunities to work with Alliance.

Teresa, Alliance Medical Ministry Patient
My husband lost his job and with only my part-time work, we could not afford my medicine. I was so scared that I would get sicker. I was so grateful for FIGS because Alliance Medical Ministry was able to get my medication for free during this crisis.

Dr. Kirk Woelffer, Physician/Surgeon
I got into medicine to help people - to help them feel better! Alliance Medical Ministry allows me to help people feel better, and be better - without the annoying barriers of big pharmacies or big insurance. THAT is good medicine for the patients - and for me, too!
