Corporate and Social Responsibility
Pioneer has been embracing social responsibility in many ways and we have also been engaging our employees in several “sustainability” projects over the past year.
Our current efforts of Sustainability and Social Responsibility are in place today living through the primary mission of Pioneer Physicians Network. We are aligned to Corporate Responsibility initiatives through our support of local foundations such as the American Heart Association and the Arthritis Foundation; and, Akron Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The primary mission of Pioneer Physicians is to provide optimal, high quality medical care in a cost effective manner. We strive to be health care leaders and maintain the highest standards of professional practice in medical teaching, practice style and the implementation of management and primary care services to meet the changing delivery structures of the future in healthcare.
Pioneer commits to being advocates for our patients, families, and caregivers and to manage care by coordinating patient education, quality assessment and improvement and accessibility and accountability to our patients. With transparency and honesty we have engaged our patients and their families and at the same time have engaged our employees to “give back” to the community in a socially responsible manner.
There are many objectives which support our mission statement. Three objectives that stand strongly in alignment with our corporate responsibility initiatives are:
- To maintain convenient, patient-oriented healthcare services that are delivered with maximum efficiency, economy and timeliness based on sound business principle
- To develop information systems, linkages and management services in order to gain a competitive advantage in operational efficiency and cost: the extent of services and product lines will be based o changing needs and network requirements
- To establish and maintain an environment that is conducive to education, research and training in order to appeal to patients, physicians and providers of care
Pioneer Physician Network is leading the Northeast Ohio healthcare community in efforts for the continuous improvement through support of various community foundations and initiatives, and our active role as healthcare leaders. We are committed to responsible leadership in addressing the social, ethical and environmental issues that affect our organization and our office communities. This commitment aligns with our success which is a direct result of the effectiveness of our relationships with our various stakeholders such as shareholders, care team members, and most of all our patients.
We “give back” to the community through our serving of the “underinsured and working poor population”. The Pioneer clinicians and many of our clerical staff became some of the first volunteers to cover Faithful Servants Care Center, a 7 day a week free clinic. Heading from our day services at our private offices over to the clinic located in Tallmadge Ohio – our clinicians see patients each evening including Saturdays and Sundays. Our lab provides services and with a joint venture the local pharmacies who provide vouchers for medications.
A beneficial service we have been able to provide is access to several specialists in Orthopedics, Obstetrics, Gynecology, Optometry, and Dentistry who may provide services at no charge in their private offices upon referral.
The clinic started in 2012 through the donations of many volunteers and church support committees. Today we have over 300 clinical and clerical support staff. To be eligible for services the clinic accepts all age groups with minor, urgent and acute illnesses and injuries. Care is free to individuals with no insurance and income at or below 200% of poverty level.
One way that we realize a true community giveback with the clinic is through the Cost Savings to patients and the savings of the general costs of HealthCare. On a monthly basis, the clinic receives monetary support from donors and organizations for the following services – Bloodwork; Aerosol Treatments for Asthmatic patients; antibiotics, Diagnostics – especially MRI’s which are very expensive and also to cover the cost for a patient that might not be able to pay their bills – utilities may be covered for a day.
