Stocks in this article: GE

“We believe that forming and maintaining community partnerships removes silos from health care services. Moreover, we believe our new partnership with GE along with the company’s business knowledge and volunteer support, will only enhance the number of people we can serve and ultimately improve health outcomes,” added Bill Tendle, Executive Director and CEO, Southside Community Health Services, Inc. “We are very excited about this opportunity.”

Developing Health is a partnership between GE Corporate Citizenship and the GE Corporate Diversity Council. Modeled after GE’s successful philanthropic program Developing Health Globally™, the program was launched in New York City in October 2009, and has since expanded to 37 cities, supporting 108 health centers with $38.9 million and 106,000 community service hours. GE employees in the Twin Cities are committed to community service. In 2012, GE Volunteers contributed 7,800 community service hours in the Twin Cities alone.

The Developing Health Globally (DHG) program was launched in Africa in 2004. This philanthropic program has helped to upgrade medical infrastructure and build human capacity in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. The program so far has invested more than $80 million in key areas like biomedical repair, maternal and child health, trauma and surgical care. Additional information and news on Developing Health Globally can be found on www.developinghealthglobally.com.
