CareSource Foundation Announces New Focus on Closing Care Gaps, Driving Quality
DAYTON, Ohio, Jan. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareSource, a nonprofit multi-state managed care plan, released a new strategic direction for the CareSource Foundation. Under the leadership of the foundation’s CEO Dan McCabe, the shift places more emphasis on supporting innovative programs that close health care gaps and drive quality outcomes across all its markets. The change has been in the works for over a year.
“This system-wide transformation is the result of over a year of work by members of our CareSource and Foundation Boards, and staff from across our company to hone our giving strategy in a way that would help move the needle on critical health issues,” said McCabe, who also serves as CareSource’s chief administrative officer. “Additionally, CareSource has committed funds that will allow the foundation to both maintain our investment in our home state of Ohio while investing in all the states we serve. We’re looking forward to collaborating with current partners and the opportunity to work with new partners across all our markets on innovative programs.”
Through strategic grantmaking, the foundation will be investing in programs that improve health equity, health outcomes and health literacy in communities where CareSource members reside. CareSource also plans on investing in programs that create a vibrant community where people want to live, work and play to attract and retain top talent and help residents lead healthy lives.
The new strategy also incorporates an overhaul of CareSource’s employee volunteer program. The foundation will provide small gifts to qualified nonprofit organizations where CareSource employees either serve on boards and committees or volunteer their time.
“CareSource employees serve as ambassadors for many organizations across our markets, lending their skills and knowledge to various initiatives, committees and boards,” McCabe said. “This provided an opportunity to evaluate and refresh our approach, giving CareSource the ability to honor our employees’ commitment to their communities through the foundation.”
