Dayton-based Insurance Provider Donates $10,000 to Nursing Facility Staff amid Crisis
(DAYTON, Ohio – April 24, 2020) – CareSource, a leading multi-state managed care plan, announced Thursday a donation of $10,000 of gift cards to CPAN (Comprehensive Post-Acute and Long term Care Network of Skilled Nursing Facilities) to support nursing facility providers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The announcement was made by Stephen Ringel, Ohio Market President at CareSource.
The gift will enable CPAN to recognize nursing facility staff including nurses and aides, social workers, therapists, activities staff, support staff, maintenance and case managers; all of whom are working to support health needs and socialization to residents during this crisis. CPAN is a provider network of over 300 skilled nursing facilities within the State of Ohio and has been a long-time partner with CareSource.
“Our team was thrilled to learn CareSource was providing our organization such a generous number of gift cards that we could provide to some of our facilities who are facing challenging needs in their day-to-day operations with their residents and staff,” said Carol A. Turni, CPAN CEO. “I am impressed by the support CareSource is providing our organization and specifically to the skilled nursing facilities that have been hardest hit by the COVID-19 health crisis in Ohio.”
The Dayton-based health plan has pivoted their charitable resources to support both front line health care providers and to meet the variable community needs around social determinants of health. In March, CareSource announced its initial commitment of $500,000 to help meet immediate needs related to the coronavirus pandemic.
“CareSource is proud to support the front line staff in the post-acute nursing facilities through our partnership with CPAN,” said Ringel. “Our health care providers are the strength of our communities and we thank them for their commitment.”
