The People's Hospital


How do medical staff offer care and hope to patients and families when patients' needs become embroiled in the semantics of citizenship status, financial resources and obstructions of bureaucracy outside of hospital walls?

The People's Hospital is the story of how Ben Taub Hospital and the Harris Health System provide excellent and affordable healthcare to Houston's most vulnerable population. Nuila shares the history of Harris Health System by examining the stories of patients that have received care through it - from Rogelio, a twenty-something undocumented immigrant from Mexico recently diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease, to Roxana, a Salvadoran woman who appears in ER after a life-saving surgery resulted in her developing dry gangrene of her arms and legs as a complication, and many more.

These are extraordinary stories in which doctors are tied up with complex moral questions about money vs healthcare, and patients manipulate their health conditions in dangerous ways in order to be eligible for lifesaving treatment that they cannot afford.
