“Health Care Access Now provides a vital service to our community,” said Tony Woods, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Deaconess Associations, Inc. (DAI). DAI is the parent organization of Deaconess Associations Foundation. “They work with the most vulnerable members of our population to eliminate barriers to health care, and we wanted to show our support for this work in a meaningful way,” he said in awarding the grant. Explains Judith Warren, CEO of HCAN, “We address the social needs of complex patients who do not fit into the routine way of delivering health care. These are persons who have experienced trauma, loss, homelessness, poverty and disconnectedness from the health care systems due to cultural and lifestyle differences.” More than one in three HCAN clients (37 percent) are covered by Medicaid and more than half (54 percent) lack health insurance.
