"We are so appreciative of MetTel's support and partnership approach," said Dennis Walto, Executive Director, Children's Health Fund. "MetTel is committed to exploring ways to help Children's Health Fund by leveraging MetTel's strengths and Children's Health Fund's expertise. We look forward to working side by side to identify the most relevant and sustainable solutions for the children we serve."
"MetTel carefully assessed several non-profit initiatives and was won over by Children's Health Fund and what they're doing for underprivileged children across America," said Marshall Aronow, CEO of MetTel. "For us, this isn't about a short-term contribution, but a long-term partnership where we're not only providing financial support, we're also working together to expand access to health care through integration with the latest technology."
MetTel has not only focused on sponsoring the organization, but also wants to help Children's Health Fund reach more children through telehealth solutions, which deliver healthcare, health information or health education through computers, tablets as well as other mobile and wearable technology. With MetTel's Telehealth and Mobile solutions, Children's Health Fund would be able to leverage secure and reliable communications technology to connect doctors with children that are in need or underserved, such as those living in rural areas.
About Children's Health Fund
Children's Health Fund was created in in 1987 in response to an unacceptable situation. For thousands of kids packed into New York City's homeless shelters, their chance for the future was dim. That inspired singer/songwriter Paul Simon and pediatrician/child advocate Irwin Redlener, MD, to do something life-changing for these children. Adequate medical care was an essential first step in helping them to be healthy and ready to learn, to have dreams and the hope of achieving them. Today, Children's Health Fund has 50 mobile clinics, each a "doctor's offices on wheels," serving hundreds of locations across the country. And, over the past 29 years, the organization has grown to support over 250,000 health care encounters annually for disadvantaged children.
