KidGlov, a boutique, full-service advertising, branding and content marketing agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., recently welcomed Charles Drew Health Center’s president and CEO, Kenny McMorris, to its podcast, Agency for Change. The episode explored how Charles Drew prioritizes the health and wellness of the Omaha community.
“Charles Drew is a leader in community health and with locations all across Omaha, including several at public schools and public housing facilities,” said Lisa Bowen, KidGlov’s vice president managing director, and agency expert on healthcare marketing. “For decades, the organization has been focused on providing comprehensive medical care for anyone who needs it regardless of their ability to pay. It was fantastic to learn more about how this group supports the community during their recent Agency for Change podcast episode.”
Charles Drew Health Center was incorporated in 1983 as the first federally qualified community health center (FQHC) in Nebraska. Since its founding, Charles Drew has provided affordable health care in Metropolitan Omaha for individuals and families with limited or no health insurance coverage. True to its mission, the organization remains dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive health care in a manner that acknowledges the dignity of the individual, the strength of the family and the supportive network of the community.
During the Agency for Change podcast episode, McMorris shares just how this organization supports those most in need in the community through programs that uplift and empower those they serve. In 2020, Charles Drew served over 14,000 unique patients through medical, dental and behavioral health care. Ninety seven percent of patients were at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. Although 46% of patients were uninsured, everyone received care regardless of their ability to pay.
“We talk a lot about healthcare and keeping people healthy. But I like to say that this place is really a beacon of hope,” said McMorris. “The population that we have the pleasure of serving far too often are left on the outside looking in. But we can change the community if we put them at the center of decision making in how we provide care.”
