– and Saves PHC Thousands of Dollars
People’s Health Clinic began on a wing and a prayer –funding from the Eccles Foundation bought a medical van and off they went – seeing patients around the two counties a couple nights a week.
And now look at the Clinic you’ve all helped build – housed permanently in a great facility and seeing over 7,000 patient visits last year. The Clinic has grown up, and there are myriad details that are important to attend to. Procedures and policies need to further the Clinic’s mission and protect patients, volunteers and staff, while keeping up with current federal and state laws.
Nann Worel, Executive Director, knew last summer that the Clinic’s Employee Handbook needed an update. At the same time, Casey Bailey, Vice-President of The Houston Group, a human resources consulting company, was on her way towards People’s Health.
She had recently moved to town and wanted to become involved in a local cause. Through the Utah Foundation, Casey found our Facebook page and was intrigued.
So, as you can probably guess, Casey called and introduced herself, met with Nann, and offered to do the update. “I wanted to be selective about how I got involved – filling a need I had the skills to meet. When I met Nann and saw her passion, I was eager to help.”
On August 3, Casey presents the newly completed Employee Handbook to PHC staff. Nann says, “I know there are so many regulations in human resources that are constantly changing, and it is tough to keep up, unless you are (or have) an HR person. With Casey volunteering her time, the Clinic saved thousands of dollars, and now we know we are in compliance and taking care of everyone we are responsible to.”
Acts of kindness and commitment like this enable People’s Health Clinic to do so much for so many.
