ICON Eyecare is a proud supporting partner of Denver Health’s mission. We are pleased to continue its mission of providing world class ophthalmology care by funding a $200,000 gift to Denver Health, which will become an integral part of Denver Health’s newest community health center in southwestern Denver, scheduled to open in April 2016.
In addition to the capital contribution, ICON Eyecare also announced its new ‘365 CommUnity’ initiative whereby ICON Eyecare’s Doctors and Care Team associates will donate 365 days of volunteer care to community health systems like Denver Health that serve low-income underserved patients in Colorado and Texas.
“ICON Eyecare is a valuable member of the healthcare community in Colorado,” said Art Gonzalez, CEO of Denver Health. “We are inspired by their heartfelt commitment to our mission. This is not just a financial commitment; this is a volunteer effort that can be a model for other health systems in Denver and beyond.”
“From the moment we shared our vision for the Southwest Family Health Center, it was evident that ICON Eyecare cared deeply for Denver Health’s mission to provide care to underserved patients,” said Paula Herzmark, Executive Director of the Denver Health Foundation. “Our partnership is an opportunity to showcase how we can work together to improve the health of our community.”
“This is a transformational moment for ICON as we become a bigger, more impactful healthcare provider in the state of Colorado,” Rick Anderson, founder and CEO of ICON Eyecare said. “Our entire care team is devoted and passionate about improving medical outcomes and patient experiences and this gift to Denver Health is an extension of the promise we make to our community.”
