2016 Healthcare Hero Award
We are excited to announce that on July 15 at the Carnegie Hotel in Johnson City, the medical volunteers of Healing Hands were awarded a 2016 Healthcare Hero award by The Business Journal of the Tri-Cities Tennessee/Virginia. For over 18 years, the clinic has relied on an impressive group of medical volunteers including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and lay volunteers. Over 47,683 volunteer hours have been logged at a value of $1,096,709 since the clinic opened. Through the medication assistance program with pharmaceutical companies and a well-stocked sample closet, prescriptions have been provided for free or for a nominal processing fee at a value of $22,237,570. Without the tremendous help of our volunteers, we would not be able to provide this much care.
