Partnering with Providers to Vaccinate Members
On March 4, LIFEPlan CCO and Utica-based Upstate Family Health Center held a COVID-19 vaccine clinic where 80 vaccines were administered to members. LIFEPlan employees Fran Burnham, Greater Mohawk Valley Regional VP, Carrie Loubier Assistant Clinical Director, and Greater Mohawk Valley Regional Liaison Ronald Loubier were on site to assist Upstate nursing staff with the administration.
With ongoing collaboration between Upstate and LIFEPlan, 150 vaccines have been administered in 3 separate clinic dates. The Utica facility provided ample handicapped parking which made access easy.
Members, caregivers, and staff who received vaccines expressed their gratitude. We share the hope of speeding up the return to activities they enjoyed prior to the onset of COVID-19 restrictions.
Our thanks to Upstate Family Health Center. We would especially like to thank CEO John Milligan and Clinical Nurse Manager Rich Williams who initiated the collaboration. We appreciate them for working with us to meet the needs of our members.
