Community Health Care, Inc. would like to sincerely thank the following organizations for their generous support in providing quality health care to people in need
in the Quad Cities area:
In From The Cold of the Quad Cities, Inc.
Community Health Care’s homeless patients recently benefited from a $1,800 grant awarded by In From The Cold of the Quad Cities, Inc. This award will be used to provide direct services to CHC’s homeless patients. Patients that cannot afford prescription medication, specialist co-pays or transportation costs will be provided financial assistance to ensure they are able to receive the care they need. Being able to provide financial assistance will have a direct impact on CHC’s homeless patients by decreasing cost barriers to care, encouraging additional patients to receive care, encouraging on-going care and improving overall health and well-being. CHC knows that patients that receive on-going care, rather than intermittent, acute care, are more likely to have better health outcomes, less emergency room visits, fewer hospitalizations and a higher quality of life.
Rauch Family Foundation
Community Health Care was awarded a $1,000 grant award to provide pediatric waiting room furniture at its Rock Island dental clinic. Visiting the dentist can be an anxiety-producing activity for children. Having an inviting and fun space that will take their mind off waiting for the dentist is an important piece in providing successful dental care for children. Thanks to the Rauch Family Foundation, CHC will be able to purchase a child-size table and chair set and wall-mounted activities for its waiting room, helping to create a welcoming environment for children.
