Cone Heart Care Team Annual Heart and Vascular Patient Care Benefit
On Friday, November 8th, join the Cone Heart Care Team as they host the 3rd Annual Heart and Vascular Patient Care Benefit.
This fund was organized in 2016 for patients of the Cone Health Heart and Vascular Center. Physicians, PAs, nurses and social workers all knew that a missed appointment often meant more than a patient forgetting to come. Their experience taught them to look deeper for answers. Many patients face struggles with day to day living. These struggles can make getting to an
appointment impossible. The healthcare providers at the Heart and Vascular Center learned to look for other signs of struggle as well. Missed refills on medicine and weight gain or loss are just a couple of signs that can point to patients having difficulties meeting his or her own needs. These needs are not met by standard medical care.
In the past, frustrated by not being able to help, the cone healthcare team donated money and goods to help patients, but not in an organized way.
They made a decision of making it their mission to develop a permanent fund that would be available for all patients in need who are served by the Cone Health Heart and Vascular Center. These providers understand that social factors in patient’s lives have a profound impact on their health and that the success in treating patients is connected to meeting all of their needs. What resulted was the creation of the Heart and Vascular Care Fund, with the idea that all donations will go towards patients in our community
