For a number of years, Synergy Billing has been honoring Community Health Heroes. Many Community Health Centers bear the names of pioneers who devoted their lives to improving access to health care and serving our most vulnerable populations. We believe the stories behind these names are inspiring and instructive, and we wanted to share them with our friends and colleagues. We want to review those stories and inspire you, too.
Community Health staff members have always been devoted to the mission we share: Assuring that every American has access to quality, affordable health care. During the past few years, their service has risen to unimaginable heights.
As a nurse, administrator, mother, humanitarian,
and champion for healthcare,
Jessie Collins Trice, BSN, MPH,
thrived on involvement and service.
Dr. Drew’s importance to modern medicine is incalculable. The storage of blood, in plasma form, has saved numerous lives. This form of storage is still used by the American Red Cross today.
Mr. David Herndon Raines was noted as a businessman, community builder, and philanthropist.
Mr. Raines was responsible for the construction of the First Negro Church in the Herndon community.
Ms. Mary Eliza Mahoney attended the Phillips School in
Boston, one of the first integrated schools there.
The emphasis on morality and humanity at Philips may have inspired Mahoney’s interest in nursing.
