What can a dollar do?
Med Center Health employees give to Employees Contributing To Help Others (ECHO) through payroll deduction, and every dollar raised goes directly to patient care programs at the Community Clinic and The Dental Clinic, the Hospitality House and the Cancer Center.
In 2018, Med Center Health employees reached the milestone of giving $2 million to help improve lives in their communities. Over the past year $167,234 was raised through payroll deduction to help provide the following:
- 3,357 patients helped at the Community Clinic and The Dental Clinic, providing basic medical and dental care to those in our community who would not otherwise be able to afford it.
- 1,350 people with loved ones at The Medical Center at Bowling Green or Commonwealth Regional Specialty Hospital, or outpatients receiving treatment at The Medical Center, stayed at the Hospitality House.
- 75 patient lives changed at the Cancer Center with transportation and medication costs paid for them.
- 4 people received lung cancer screenings.
