Hispaniola Medical Charity

How We Began

Dr. Dennis Gore and Dr. Umbert Hart began their medical training at University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, TX in 1980. Dr. Gore is now a General Surgeon on faculty at UTMB and Dr. Hart is an anesthesiologist in private practice in Bryan, TX. Both doctors have participated in medical missions during their years in practice. After the death of Dr. Hart's father, who was also a physician, Dr. Gore encouraged Dr. Hart and friends to form an organization that could help provide medical and surgical care to the indigent people of the island of Hispaniola, the home of Dr. Hart's family. They formed Hispaniola Medical Charity (HMC) which is now a 501(c)(3) and is collecting monetary donations as well as medicines, medical and surgical supplies and equipment.
