GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Veteran's Day 2015 officially marks the launch of the Patriot Promise™ Foundation, aimed at ensuring veterans receive the best medical and mental healthcare available. Founded by Bob Taylor, the President and CEO of Alliant Healthcare Products, the foundation is committed to raising funds to identify gaps in veteran healthcare and fund the research, development, procurement, and delivery of innovative medical technology and mental healthcare to the veteran community.
Veterans need every advantage they can get when it comes to their healthcare. "It's a tough situation," states Taylor. "Veterans are expected to navigate a very complex healthcare system. The procurement process in the Veteran's Administration (VA) is extremely complicated as well. As a country, we need to get beyond simply pointing fingers at the VA and work with them to do what it takes to find and fix any gaps in healthcare whether it's the availability of the latest technology or proactively treating Post Traumatic Stress for vets."
The Patriot Promise™ Foundation will identify healthcare technology that is available in the commercial sector but not available to veteran's healthcare providers. Furthermore, the foundation will use funds created by donations and fund-raising efforts to ensure that every veteran is guaranteed the absolute best healthcare available.
The Veteran's Day launch of the Patriot Promise Foundation is the first step in a long-term vision for the program aimed at transforming veteran healthcare. Patriot Promise concerts, fund raising events, nationwide advertising campaigns, social media blitzes, and merchandise sales will provide necessary funding and contribute to the success of the program and the viability of the Foundation.
Donations made to the Patriot Promise Foundation will be used exclusively to raise money to research, identify, support, and deliver proactive and technologically advanced healthcare treatments for veterans, with a key focus on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
