HCA Holdings this week announced an agreement to admit to its 10 Dallas-area hospitals patients from the freestanding ER departments run by First Choice Emergency Room. The latter company, which is based in Dallas, runs 17 facilities in Texas and Colorado.
The agreement aims to ensure bed availability for First Choice ER patients needing acute care services provided by nearby HCA hospitals. First Choice ER transferring patients will avoid HCA hospitals' emergency departments and will instead be directly admitted when non-emergent criteria are met.
The U.S. Small Business Administration and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce are teaming on a pilot program in four U.S. cities — one of which is Nashville — to broaden the impact of the agency’s programs among Hispanic entrepreneurs.
Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce officials recently returned from the 33rd annual U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce National Convention in Los Angeles, at which the announcement of the partnership was announced.
“We are very encouraged and gratified to be a part of this worthwhile effort in Tennessee,” Yuri Cunza (pictured), president and CEO of the NAHCC, said in a release.
The aim of the partnership is to help increase access to lending and counseling for Hispanic small businesses and widen participation of small Hispanic-owned businesses in SBA’s procurement programs.
“The national alliance will help to forge stronger relationships between our Tennessee SBA District Office and the Nashville Hispanic Chamber," Walter Perry, SBA Tennessee District director, said in the release. "It will strengthen efforts to help even more Hispanic-owned small firms succeed, and expand the reach of SBA’s program and services in the Metropolitan Nashville area."
Since 2009, SBA has supported more than 12,000 loans worth $4.4 billion to Hispanic-owned small businesses, with nearly $1 billion in lending in 2012 alone. Spanning the same period, SBA has trained and counseled more than 532,000 Hispanic-owned small businesses through its network of district and field offices, and resource partner network, including Small Business Development Centers, Women’s Business Centers and SCORE. SBA also has helped Hispanic-owned businesses secure $32.7 billion of prime contracts from the federal government, providing a major revenue base.
In addition to Nashville, the pilot partnership will launch citywide programs with Hispanic chambers in Austin and El Paso, Texas as well as Philadelphia. Statewide programs will be undertaken in California, Florida, Ohio and Utah.
The Legal Aid Society has teamed up with Shade Tree Clinic, a venture run by Vanderbilt School of Medicine students, to offer basic legal services — think Social Security issues or housing assistance — to the clinic's patients. As part of the partnership, Legal Aid attorney Chay Sengkhounmany (pictured) is spending time at eight-year-old Shade Tree three days a month.
Shade Tree is a free medical clinic that Vanderbilt medical students have run since 2004. Brad Lindell, a former Vanderbilt medical student volunteer who helped organize the MLP explained, “the idea of adding legal assistance to Shade Tree became clear once I saw the success that my wife’s law firm had with its partnership with a Boston medical clinic. Our patients face many of the same issues that she had seen in Boston. We knew that adding the legal component to our services would help make our medical treatment more successful.”
