April 17, 2019

Henry Schein Medical and Henry Schein Cares Foundation, Inc. (HSCF) has entered a multi-year partnership with Children's Health Fund (CHF) to help the nonprofit organization increase its reach in bringing healthcare services to U.S. children who would otherwise not have access.

Since its founding in 1987, CHF has helped expand access to comprehensive primary care; reduce health barriers to learning; respond to the needs of children impacted by major health crises; and improve the health and well-being of children through advocacy and public education efforts.

Henry Schein Medical announced in a press release that it is pairing up with HSCF to provide a combination of cash and in-kind product donations valued at nearly $525,000 over four years. This donation will include a wide range of medical and dental products to support CHF's mobile medical clinics and pediatric programs at the following 12 locations:

·    Children's National Medical Center, Washington, D.C.

·    Community Pediatric Programs at Montefiore, New York, NY

·    Dell Children's Medical Center, Austin, TX

·    Family Health Services, Twin Falls, ID

·    Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, Memphis, TN

·    Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, San Francisco, CA

·    Phoenix Children's Hospital, Phoenix, AZ

·    Teen Xpress at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, Orlando, FL

As part of the agreement, said the release, each site had an opportunity to request a custom product mix to meet their unique needs, ensuring Henry Schein's donations were strategically allocated to fulfill the most critical patient needs by location.
