Meet Dr. Gates
Dr. Zane Gates - Chief Medical Officer, PeopleOne Health
Dr. Zane Gates was raised by a single mother in an Altoona housing project. Despite childhood struggles, he grew up to complete pharmacy school, and then medical school, at the University of Pittsburgh. After medical school and a residency in internal medicine, he returned to Altoona, opening his own free clinic in a van to provide care to the working poor. After partnering with Altoona Regional Health System, this evolved into Partnering for Health Services, providing access to free health care to approximately 3,500 individuals in Altoona each year. All the while, he was focused on inventing a new model for providing better healthcare at a lower cost. That model eventually became PeopleOne Health.
