About We Care Manatee

We Care Manatee serves Manatee County residents through timely health care services, education, and community outreach. Each day, our providers, volunteers, and staff live our mission to facilitate free medical care to low-income, uninsured residents of Manatee County.

We Care Manatee provides a cost effective, private sector solution to our community’s uninsured healthcare needs by connecting eligible, uninsured patients with volunteer physicians willing to treat them. We do this by providing care through our primary care clinic, breast cancer screening and diagnostic services, or referrals to specialty physicians who volunteer their time and donate free medical services.

We offer four care programs that work together to help our patients receive the critical treatment they need to keep them healthy and out of local emergency rooms.


We Care Manatee was founded by the Manatee County Medical Society in 1999 to address the increasing need of uninsured residents to be seen and treated by a medical specialist. In 2001, We Care Manatee began coordinating care between local physicians who were willing to see uninsured patients in their offices free of charge. In 2002 we incorporated. In the years since then, We Care Manatee physicians have provided nearly $6 million in donated care to patients who would otherwise go without.
