In late 2012, the leadership of QuestCare found themselves brainstorming how to give back to the community from some of their business’ success. After discussing the possibility of a non-profit clinic, Dr. Matthew Bush, ER Physician and principal within QuestCare Partners, connected with leadership at his home church, Watermark Community Church to partner together on the endeavor.
“While the QuestCare team offers medical expertise, we did not know a lot about meeting needs in an underserved community,” said Dr. Matt Bush. “Watermark is the first organization we talked to about the Clinic and from there the partnership began.”
With the help of QuestCare’s medical expertise and Watermark’s church body, men and women through the church and community were quickly mobilized to make the clinic happen.
Real estate agents, city officials, community leaders, and construction teams came together to select our first clinic's location and make the build out possible. Housed in the middle of a strategic area of need in East Dallas, the clinic was able to see thousands of people in its first year of opening. ithin a few short years our first location had reached maximum capacity and we started to consider what might be next.
As we sought wisdom from key partners, prayed, and planed we came to the following conclusion.
It was time to grow beyond our original four walls.
