Developing Health is a 3-year, $25 million commitment that provides grant funding and employee engagement to selected healthcare centers across the United States, focusing on delivering primary care and access to quality healthcare.

The grant will enable AmeriCares, a nonprofit global health and disaster relief organization, to expand its domestic medical assistance services to over 250 health clinics serving the uninsured and underinsured throughout the U.S., delivering donated medicines and medical supplies to clinics providing primary care services. The Developing Health program helps drive GE’s ‘healthymagination’ initiative—a commitment to help change the world’s approach to healthcare by lowering costs, touching more lives, and improving quality.

”Recognizing a critical need in the U.S. healthcare system, the Developing Health program seeks to fill the gap in access to quality care for underserved communities. Our partnership with AmeriCares is a great illustration of the positive impact that the Developing Health program can make by combining funding with the volunteer support of GE’s people,” said Bob Corcoran, President of GE Foundation.

“We are proud to be a part of the ‘Developing Health’ initiative as it is in perfect alignment with our vision to help more people live longer, healthier lives,” said Curt Welling, President and CEO of AmeriCares. “AmeriCares is committed to supporting free clinics and their critical role in our country’s healthcare system; providing underserved patients with access to healthcare in addition to easing the pressure on over-burdened emergency rooms for primary care services.”

In 2009, AmeriCares delivered more than $20 million in medical assistance to 160 health clinics across the country and plans to double that commitment to $40 million over the next two years. The grant from the GE Foundation will enable AmeriCares to broaden the support it provides to clinics, including best practices research and guidelines to stretching limited resources to increase patient treatment capacity.
