We are pleased to share news about two of our members, Blue Ridged Medical Center and Daily Planet Health Services. Both member health centers received awards from the Virginia Healthcare Foundation.
Blue Ridge Medical Center is the recipient of the Unsung Heroes Award for Teamwork. Unsung Heroes are dedicated volunteers, gracious donors, exceptional physicians, extraordinary teams, remarkable employees and child health champions committed to providing primary health care to uninsured Virginians and those in medically underserved areas. These Unsung Heroes are role models who have provided excellent service, commitment and dedication to an organization that has received a Virginia Health Care Foundation grant.

Daily Planet Health Services is the recipient of the Health Safety Net Innovation Award. As Virginia’s health care safety net clinics and health centers evolve, a growing number have instituted innovative practices to improve the delivery of care to their patients. Daily Planet Health Services has instituted just such a program, “Project IMPACT: Diabetes.” It provides comprehensive interdisciplinary outreach, screening, and diabetes management to the homeless and those at-risk of becoming homeless in the Richmond area.
Congratulations to Blue Ridge Medical Center and Daily Planet Health Services!
