The Full Story


The Association of Philipino American Physicians of Delaware was organized in 1974 to promote the professional growth of its members, to sponsor medical missions to the Philippines, and to support civic and charitable activities in the United States. After decades of practice in Delaware, four pioneering Philipino doctors became aware of the lack of quality medical care for the low income and uninsured. Drs. Vicenta G. Marquez, Venerando J. Maximo, Jose Pamintuan, and Basilio Bautista decided to bring the medical missions project to their adopted state of Delaware. The founders identified a location that is accessible to public transportation, negotiated the use of free space for a clinic at Modern Maturity Center, and raised funds through private donations. They organized a group of medical and community volunteers and forged a partnership with other health providers in order to provide access to health care to the uninsured and needy patients in Kent County, Delaware. On October 7, 2003, the Hope Medical  Dental Clinic was officially opened for business and served the first eight patients.
