Donated health care products will help expand access to care for homeless, uninsured, and underinsured patients served by Eva's Village Medical & Dental Clinics.

The primary medical clinic at Eva's Village provides care to Eva's clients and individuals who are uninsured or underinsured in the Paterson community.

The philosophy behind Henry Schein Cares is a vision of 'doing well by doing good.'

Eva’s Village announced today that it has received a donation of health care products under a grant from the Henry Schein Cares Global Product Donation Program. Through this program, Henry Schein, Inc., the world’s largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners, provides recipient organizations with several health care product donations valued between $5,000 and $25,000 over the course of two years.

The grant will enable Eva’s Village to more effectively carry out its mission and expand its ability to provide care to homeless, uninsured and underinsured patients who use its primary medical & dental clinics. Henry Schein Cares aims to expand access to health care for underserved and at-risk populations around the world by promoting wellness, prevention, treatment and education; providing emergency preparedness and relief; and building health care capacity.

In 2016, Eva’s medical and dental clinic provided care for 5,208 patient visits, an increase of 82.5% since 2012. “Donated medical supplies make a significant impact by allowing us to allocate more resources to treat patients and help us meet increasing demand for services in our community,” said Clinic Administrator, Janiene Diaz-Fasano. “We are grateful for the ongoing assistance we receive from Henry Schein Cares,” she said.
