This month’s Customer Spotlight shines on Shawnee Christian Healthcare Center. They have been in the spotlight all month after winning the GLI Inc.credible 2018 Non-Profit of the Year Award where they were up against 4 other local non-profits.
In her acceptance speech at the award ceremony, CEO, Phyllis Platt, was almost speechless. She said that the Center was honored to be part of GLI and a part of the group of non-profit candidates nominated for the award.
The key to the success of the Center is the incredible group of team members who see people and possibilities in the west end of Louisville and who really work hard every day to transform lives. Here’s a little more about the Center in Phyllis’ own words.
1. Tell us about your company and what you do.
Shawnee Christian Healthcare Center (SCHC) is a community health center providing medical, dental, behavioral health, and school-based health services in Louisville’s west end. SCHC is a small non-profit organization that serves about 4,000 community residents each year.
Our mission is to provide high-quality healthcare from a holistic perspective with the goal of transforming the health of the neighborhood. We wrap around our patients by providing physical, social, behavioral, and spiritual support that empowers patients to fully engage in their own healthcare.
2. What drew your company to make a connection with Unified Technologies?
Our CFO had previously worked with Scott Diamond at Unified Technologies and had found them to be responsive, provide good service, and focused on customer needs. The fact that Unified Technologies also supports their own employee’s engagement with the company was a plus as well.
3. How has partnering with Unified benefited you and your company?
They gave us a state of the art solution for telephone systems at next to nothing cost because of our nonprofit status. As a result, we have an excellent system and very good support at a reasonable cost.
4. If you could describe Unified in one word, what would that be?
We are so excited to be working with this incredible organization. Check out volunteer opportunities here.
