The El Centro medical system covers 22,000 square miles of northern New Mexico, a largely rural and critically underserved area. While providing care regardless of condition or ability to pay, the system itself is at risk. Employees leave continuously, opting for more profitable jobs, and funding for helping the sickest and most vulnerable is dwindling. Meet Matt, Chris, and Leslie. These doctors are devoted to this population, knowing how many lives illness, addiction, and neglect will claim without access to care. THE PROVIDERS focuses on the relationships with the doctors’ patients and their fight to keep the system together. THE PROVIDERS takes no political or judgmental stance. Its incredible power generates from its humanity. While only examining a piece of the healthcare puzzle, its truths are nonetheless vast. In an age conspicuously lacking in heroes, here are three. This stunning documentary makes us grateful they are out there. —C.R.
