The Sid W. Richardson
Foundation of Fort Worth
has presented a $25,000 grant
to Texas Tech University
Health Sciences Centers to
assist in the development of a
Rural Health Care Delivery
System now being established
by the School of Medicine
(TTUSM).
In notifying the school of
the grant, Executive Vice
President for the Richardson
Foundation Valleau Wilkie,
Jr. said the purposes of the
Board in approving the grant
are:
1. To help provide
sufficient staff for the project
in its intital stages,
2. To indicate our interest
in and approval of the
project, and
3. To lead the' way for
other funding agencies within
the state that might develop
an interest in the program.
“We believe that the
program can provide a viable
model for both rural health
care delivery in areas
seriously underserved and
important training for family
practice physisians,” Wilkie
concluded.
“We greatly appreciate the
support of the Sid W.
Richardson Foundation in
helping us develop a program
which we hope can serve as a
visible, effective model in
dealing with the problems of
rural health care,” Richard A.
Lockwood, M.D., vice
president for the Texas Tech
University Health Sciences
Centers, said in accepting the
grant.
“This is concrete evidence
of confidence in the concept
of cooperation between
academic institutions and
local communities to solve
this most critical problem.
Hopefully support by the Sid
W. Richardson Foundation
will encourage other
philanthropic institutions to
seriously consider the same or
similar projects,” Lockwood
said.
The first phase of Tech
Medical School’s Rural
Health Care Delivery System
began operating last fall at
the Crosby ton ^Clinic in
Crosbyton, Texas. It is a joint
project of the medical school
and the community.
The project will result in a
network of care centers with
centers with communications
and transporation links that
will serve a multi-county area.
The area has been selected
because a nucleus of care
facilities exist which could
effectively be augmented by
TTUSM efforts.
The Rural Health Care
Delivery System will use a
graded care method for
serving sparcely populated
areas.
The comprehensive
primary care center is staffed
by faculty and resident
physicians. Smaller centers
can later be established in
surrounding communities and
supported by physicians from
the comprehensive center.
Communication and
transportation links will allow
these centers to receive
secondary and tertiary
support, consulatation and
emergency guidance from the
medical school in Lubbock.
When it becomes fully
functional^ the project will
accumulate the' data base
needed for program
modification and adaptation
to other rural circumstances
and locales.
C enters will provide
primary care services for
medically ■ underserved
populations, and will train
undergraduate medical
students, resident physicians
and other health professionals
in the delivery of health care
in rural settings.
The plan calls for full
involvement of local people
in planning and executing
their own system of health
care.
Texas Tech University
School of 'Medicine was
created by the 61st Texas
Legislature to address
problems of health care
delivery in primarily rural
West Texas and to develop
education programs
emphasizing primary health
care. The Rural Health Care
Delivery System
incorporates both of these
objectives.
