The El Dorado Multispecialty Medical Group (EDMMG), takes community health to heart. On the heels of one of the most difficult years for healthcare, the group of providers donated $10,000 to Marshall’s Community Care Network (CCN), through Marshall Foundation for Community Health.
When you don’t feel well, it can be difficult to navigate your medical journey. Marshall’s CCN assists chronically ill patients with healthcare coordination and management, in-home care, medical supplies, and volunteer health coaches, at no cost to the patient.
“The future of high quality healthcare will require a focus on promoting health, rather than reacting to illness,” says Scott Vasconcellos, MD, President/CEO of EDMMG. “CCN removes obstacles that often prevent patients from receiving the routine and preventative care they so desperately need. That’s an effort that deserves all of our support.” He continued, “As a local cardiologist who manages many patients with chronic illnesses, I’ve had several of my patients benefit from the CCN’s services, which improved their overall health, and avoided the potential need for hospitalization. The EDMMG board of directors also wished to express our sincerest gratitude for the important work being done at both Marshall Foundation for Community Health, and Marshall’s Community Care Network.”
“This is what community health means,” expressed Jamie Johnson, Executive Director of Marshall Foundation for Community Health. “When volunteers, organizations, providers, and the community come together to support our most disadvantaged, health outcomes improve and lives can be changed. We are extremely grateful to our donors; it is gifts to the community like this that make valuable programs like CCN possible.”
