UCNI and Brain Tumor Center Thank Interim Healthcare, Walk Ahead Platinum Sponsor

With the second annual Walk Ahead for a Brain Tumor Cure only two days away, the University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute and UC Brain Tumor Center wish to thank our platinum sponsor, Interim Healthcare.

Interim Healthcare employs more than 75,000 healthcare workers at 300 franchise locations around the United States. Its nurses, therapists, aides and other health care personnel serve approximately 50,000 people each day. In the Greater Cincinnati region, where Interim Healthcare is celebrating its 40th year, 800 employees serve approximately 3,000 people every day.

“Walk Ahead is a wonderful cause, and we are thrilled to be one of your main sponsors,” says Cheryl Hastings, Interim Healthcare’s Regional Vice President. “We have provided services to many clients with brain injury and other neurological diseases and disorders, and we have worked with University Hospital for well over 20 years.”

Interim Healthcare’s motto — “When it matters most, count on us” – reflects its mission: to help clients with routine or complex medical care while allowing them to stay out of institutions and in the comfort of their homes. That home-based medical care can range from physical and occupational therapy to chemotherapy and even ventilator and tracheotomy care.

“We are one of very few companies left that does home ventilators and tracheotomies, some of higher-tech services,” Ms. Hastings says. “Some patients with brain tumors may need to be on a ventilator for short period of time, or even on a chronic long-term basis, and we can provide that service to them at home. Ninety-nine percent of patients want to stay at home with their family and not in nursing home.”

Interim Healthcare serves patients of all ages, from the elderly to babies. One-third of its patients are pediatric. Interim’s Greater Cincinnati region covers a wide swathe that includes six counties around Cincinnati, eight in Northern Kentucky, 10 in Southeastern Indiana and eight around Dayton.

Gold sponsors of Walk Ahead are Fund Evaluation Group and Miller Valentine Group. Silver sponsors are dunnhumby, Merck & Co. and Trauth Dairy.
