 LEXINGTON, Ky. – March 22, 2018 – Lexington Clinic has been recognized by Intalere, the healthcare industry leader in delivering optimal cost, quality and clinical outcomes, as an Intalere Healthcare Achievement Award winner for Community Impact and Innovation.

The award was received for Lexington Clinic’s groundbreaking work with the Direct-To-Employer program. Lexington Clinic’s Direct-To-Employer program offers customized, premier partnership options for progressive employers in the Commonwealth, and is able to address both preventive care and chronic health conditions of employee populations to improve both employee health and the bottom line.

“In this era of disruptive change within the healthcare industry, it is more important than ever to not only recognize the successful initiatives that providers are implementing to enhance their services, patient outcomes and bottom line, but to also share these best practices with others in order that they too may be successful in their efforts as well,” says Julius Heil, Intalere president and CEO. “Our awards program does just that.

Yes, Mamm! Program Receives $20,000 Grant to Provide Additional Breast Cancer Screenings in Kentucky

Grant will provide breast health care and support for underserved populations

Lexington, Ky. (April 6, 2018) – The Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation, part of KentuckyOne Health, has been awarded a $20,000 grant from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services’ Breast Cancer Research and Education Trust Fund, to continue the Yes, Mamm! program at the Saint Joseph East Breast Center. This program provides mammography screenings and diagnostic services to individuals in need from central and eastern Kentucky.

“This generous grant will help us continue providing potentially lifesaving breast can-cer screenings to low-income, uninsured or underinsured men and women in our community,” said Leslie Smart, president, Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation. “The funding will be used to provide 90 mammograms and, if needed, further diagnostic screenings at no cost to patients. We are thankful for this gift in support of our mission to bring wellness, healing and hope to all.”

Approximately 1 in 8 women, and 1 percent of men, will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. However, with early detection, the five-year survival rate is more than 80 percent. Mammograms are an important tool in early detection, but too often, cost prevents people from getting a screening. The Yes, Mamm! program helps make breast cancer screenings accessible for more people who currently fall through the cracks of available services.

The Yes, Mamm! program was created in 2012, and collaborates with local health departments to identify individuals in need and provide services. Yes, Mamm! has helped hundreds of people across the Commonwealth, with 100 percent of its program funding spent on patient care.
