Success Stories

Integrated Health Network

EPHT funded the first initiative of the St. Louis Integrated Health Network (IHN), an alliance of primary and specialty medical care providers that work with the underserved population of St. Louis. The project was to develop a marketing campaign that would promote healthcare providers to these difficult-to-reach patients.

IHN used printed materials, advertisements, special events, and digital media to communicate its message. Research conducted at emergency departments during the 4th quarter of 2010 showed a 60% increase in referral requests for IHN healthcare providers.

Mental Health America of Eastern Missouri

In 2010, EPHT provided funding to help Mental Health America of Eastern Missouri (MHA-EM) increase the capacity of its Representative Payee Program.  This program serves clients with chronic mental illness who are required to have a representative manage income from benefits such as Social Security.  MHA-EM’s staff works with these individuals to secure housing, develop a monthly budget, and create a stable environment that allows them focus on improving their mental health.

MHA-EM used its grant to purchase updated computer software and add a full-time staff member.  In the past year, they have increased the number of clients they serve by 20%, completed over 10,000 financial transactions on behalf of their clients, and organized 531 budget meetings.

St. Patrick’s Center Healthcare Wing

EPHT provided funding to St. Patrick’s Center to help create a healthcare wing within their Partnership Center where homeless and impoverished individuals could have access to primary healthcare, routine dental care, and chiropractic services. The Healthcare Wing includes exam rooms, offices, file space, and a dental lab. Nearly 1,500 clients received services in 2010.
