Henry Schein has announced that it has awarded its fourth annual Henry Schein Cares Medal in the Dental category, recognizing three nonprofit organizations and naming Rochester, New York-based United Cerebral Palsy Association of the Rochester Area (CP Rochester) as “Best In Class.” The Henry Schein Cares Medal recognizes organizations that demonstrate excellence in expanding access to care for the underserved.
CP Rochester was recognized for its commitment to serving the health care needs of people with developmental, intellectual, and acquired disabilities, and their families, living in Monroe County, New York, and for its Family Dental Center (FDC) in particular. CP Rochester opened the FDC in 2008 after determining that people with special needs in their area had limited access to oral health care for a number of reasons, whether a lack of accessible facilities or resouces to train dental professionals to care for special needs patients. The FDC offers fully accessible facilities and dental operatories, and is staffed by specially trained personnel ready to address each patient’s unique needs.
An independent panel of 15 judges selected CP Rochester as this year’s “Best In Class” medalist from a field that included fellow medalists La Maestra Family Clinic (San Diego) and Community Healthcare Network (New York). Each medalist receives a $10,000 cash award from the Henry Schein Cares Foundation.
