Always on our side

To Deborah Bickel, advocacy means working on behalf of the patient, not the doctor or facility. Be Well”s top priority is to make sure that each member’s desires are understood and laid out clearly and legally so that, if necessary, there is no confusion about what services to provide when called into action. 

Be Well helps us find the best medical care available in the area, helps us and our emergency contacts know what to do in case of an emergency, provides oversight to our health care if needed, and helps coordinate home health care if necessary. This can mean arranging for beds, oxygen, nurses, and other medical specialists. 

Working closely with Dr. Emilio Ramirez, an emergency room physician and specialist, and the new Director of Joya Hospital, Deborah and her team have the depth of knowledge and skill to handle all levels of medical emergencies.
