Wickenburg, Arizona (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
The Meadows trauma and addiction treatment center in Wickenburg, Arizona, will honor National Military Appreciation Month this May through support of the USO’s Operation Enduring Care.
In recognition of the service members who keep our country safe, for every inpatient admission during the month of May, The Meadows will make a donation to the USO in its drive to raise $100 million for Operation Enduring Care, which supports wounded warriors and their families.
A nonprofit, congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities. The USO is not part of the U.S. government but is recognized by the Department of Defense, Congress and President of the United States, who serves as Honorary Chairman of the USO.
“Working with active duty service men and women and their families is an honor we take very seriously,” said Patricia Evans, Chief Marketing Officer for The Meadows. “The goal of Operation Enduring Care – to embrace and accelerate healing, fulfillment, and a reconnection to life and relationships off the battlefield – is not unlike what we work to help our patients discover at The Meadows. We are proud to contribute to this cause.”
The Meadows is privileged to be a TRICARE Preferred Provider of behavioral health and substance abuse inpatient services with an emphasis on trauma, PTSD and addictive disease disorders to active duty military members, veterans and their dependents of the TRICARE West Region.
“The Meadows has a long history of working with TRICARE beneficiaries as a non-contracted provider,” said Jim Dredge, Chief Executive Officer for The Meadows. “We are tremendously proud to help serve the health care needs of service members, veterans, and their families, and would be happy to help determine eligibility and benefits that can be utilized at The Meadows. We are committed to helping military beneficiaries and partnering with all aspects of the TRICARE healthcare alliance.”
