Health - Is it Worth a $13 Million Risk?
When big time funders come together to invest in Southeast Raleigh, especially when local funders took a pass, people take note. Upwards of 130 people recently gathered at Shaw University to support Advance Community Health and its transformation into a national model for delivering community health services. However, it was the words of Emily Chen, Program Director for Health Center Financing at LISC, that participants will take to heart.
"Comprehensive care means more than healthcare," said Chen, who flew in to keynote the event from LISC's New York office . "This project illustrates one of our key goals-- to build nontraditional alliances that can help support healthy communities."
In addition to LISC, the $13 million financing package includes Mercy Housing, Kresge Foundation, Capital Impact Partners, and Morgan Stanley. Chen noted that the Raleigh investment marked the first time this collaboration has joined forces on a project of this scope. It speaks to underwriter confidence that this project will enhance property values in the neighborhood. "There is no road map for this kind of work...together, however, we can make a difference," said Chen.
As an example, Chen pointed to Advance's recent collaboration with DHIC to assure those living in public housing have a primary care medical home. "Success on community development really hinges on partnerships," said Chen, adding "It's an example of how public-private partnerships can achieve better outcomes."
I am Advance Community Health
Meet Dr. Jill Wright
Dr. Wright is an American Board of Pediatrics Certified Physician who has been a member of the Advance Team for more than ten years.
Q: Why did you choose to work at a Community Health Center?
A: I enjoy helping my patients and their parents overcome challenges- I really enjoy being able to connect them to the resources they need to get healthy- and stay healthy.
Q: What do you love most about your job?
A: I love when I see the children I work with grow up! There's something so rewarding about feeling like I had some part in keeping them healthy and successful. All of my patients are special to me, but I find it most special when I see patients that have been in my care for over ten years turn into young adults and high school graduates. Many of my patients have gone to college or enlisted in the military and they will occasionally stop by to say hi or send me a message through their younger siblings- there is nothing better than hearing from my former patients!
Q: What are you doing to make a difference in the lives of your patients?
A: I try to listen fully- I want to make sure that I address the full concerns of my patients and their parents. It's helpful for me, too, so that I can use best practices to treat both the medical and underlying issues in each situation. Our team works very hard to make every visit- be it a sick or well child- a thorough one.
