HCC Hosts First Annual Piccadilly
Dinner & Auction

Event Honors the Late Melanie Corporon

The Health Care Collaborative (HCC) of Rural Missouri is hosting their first Annual Piccadilly Dinner and Auction, Saturday, November 17, 2018, 5:30 p.m. at the Higginsville Senior Center, 101 West 21st Street. The event honors the late Melanie Corporon, a former HCC employee whose passion was helping underserved individuals move out of poverty. Proceeds for the Great Gatsby themed event support HCC’s Project Connect events and its warehouse. Both help connect underserved and uninsured individuals with needed resources.

“Funds raised will help sustain our community warehouse and Project Connect programs. These initiatives provide direct support to individuals and families who need help with meeting basic needs. It also allows us to connect them with resources that provide health care, through our Live Well Centers, as well as connect them with support services,” said Suzanne Smith, HCC’s Director of Network Development.

HCC Brings Rural Rides to
Lexington Residents!

HCC Partners with Missouri Rural Health Association and Feonix HealthTran to Provide Free Rides to Medical Appointments for Lexington Residents and Live Well Community Health Center Patients

Volunteer Drivers Wanted and Asked to Apply

The Health Care Collaborative (HCC) of Rural Missouri and its longtime partner, Missouri Rural Health Association (MRHA), are collaborating to bring ride-booking transportation services, similar to Uber, to rural Lafayette County. Funding is provided by the Health and Wellness Board of the City of Lexington, Missouri. Free rides to medical appointments are offered to residents living within Lexington city limits, and patients of the Live Well Community Health Centers. Individuals living outside of Lexington city limits have the option to self-pay. The goal of the program is to close one of the largest barriers to receiving quality health care: transportation. Health care providers interested in helping their patients secure transportation to and from medical appointments should contact HCC.

Individuals in need of rides to medical appointments may contact Chris Carney, 660.251.0751.

Drivers Wanted!
