Las Vegas Emergency Physicians Conference Attendees Select Miracle Flights as Winning Charity
LAS VEGAS, – MassMedia Corporate Communications is proud to announce that TeamHealth, the country’s leading provider of outsourced hospital-based clinical and administrative services, will contribute $25,000 to Miracle Flights, a charity that provides free commercial airline tickets so children and their families can obtain special medical care.
“It is truly an honor to represent a company whose work saves countless lives every year and whose charitable endeavors make the world a better place to live,” said Kassi Belz, president of MassMedia. “TeamHealth has a long tradition of community stewardship, and that corporate spirit comes shining through again with its donation to this worthy cause.”
Las Vegas-based Miracle Flights received the most votes from attendees at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) conference, held October 16-19 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Visitors to TeamHealth’s booth not only discovered how TeamHealth delivers the highest quality staffing, administrative support and management across the full healthcare spectrum, but also learned about the critical work performed by five different Las Vegas-based charities.
Attendees then were encouraged to choose a magnet from the voting board and deposit it into the collection box corresponding to the charity of their choice. Miracle Flights received the most votes among the finalists which also included, Sunrise Children’s Foundation, Three Square Food Bank, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
“TeamHealth’s generous contribution will expand our mission to fly seriously ill children and their parents to medical specialists and treatment appointments around the country,” said Miracle Flights CEO Mark E. Brown. “The donation translates to more than 32,000 air miles and helps ensure access to critical care for children and adults with serious
and rare diseases.”
