Nov. 29, 2021 – MultiPlan Corporation (NYSE:MPLN), a leading provider of data analytics and technology-enabled cost management, and payment and revenue integrity solutions to the U.S. healthcare industry, announces the recipients of its 2021 Rural Health Grant. The three hospitals selected to receive this year’s grants have each submitted creative proposals for addressing the healthcare needs of people in their community.
The recipients of the 2021 MultiPlan Rural Health Grant are:
- Cumberland Memorial Hospital, Cumberland, Wisconsin
- Lavaca Medical Center, Hallettsville, Texas
- Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital, Colebrook, New Hampshire
Cumberland Memorial Hospital will use their grant for their Hybrid Cardiopulmonary Program. This funding will enable the hospital to create cardiopulmonary telehealth kits used for remote communication and monitoring that patients can use from home to continue their cardiac rehabilitation.
Lavaca Medical Center will expand their Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program. Implemented in 2019, this program supports rehabilitation services for cardiac and pulmonary patients within the community. Grant funds will be used to purchase additional equipment to accommodate the program’s growing size and scope.
Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital will use this funding to support the final phase of their “How Pain Works” education program pilot. This program educates middle school children about the perception, reaction and response to pain in an effort to foster healthy behaviors and reduce the potential of substance abuse as a means to manage pain.
