Saltzer Medical Group donates to local homeless program

(Caldwell) – Saltzer Medical Group will present a check for $10,000 to the C.A.T.C.H. of Canyon County program on Tuesday, January 5th, 2009 at 215 E. Hawaii Avenue in Nampa. The donation will be presented to City of Caldwell Mayor Garret Nancolas at 2p.m. Members of the public are invited to celebrate this gift and hear about the success of C.A.T.C.H. in fighting homelessness amongst families in Canyon County. A portion of the gift will be used to serve families in the Boise C.A.T.C.H. program.

“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of Saltzer Medical Group and their employees and can’t thank them enough for the contribution they have made to needy families in our community,” said Mayor Nancolas. “This donation will assist us in providing rental assistance and much-needed case management, ensuring that our clients can begin supporting themselves and their families.”

“Saltzer Medical Group encourages employee involvement in charitable organizations by matching 100% any donations made by their physicians,” continued Mayor Nancolas. “Wouldn’t it be great if other businesses could implement programs like this in their own organizations? What a difference that could make to our families.”

“Saltzer Medical Group is proud to support the CATCH program. As a group we agreed that CATCH is an organization that fits the mission of Saltzer Medical Group because they not only impact individual families, but entire communities,” added Dr. Tom Patterson, chair of Saltzer’s Business Development Committee. “We encourage other businesses and individuals to support this worthwhile cause.”

C.A.T.C.H. of Canyon County was formed in July of 2009 and is based on a successful housing program created and administered by the City of Boise, in partnership with business and faith-based communities. The program, which provides housing and intensive case management to homeless families for up to six months, has had great success in helping their clients find employment, address the issues that led to the homeless episode and learn tools to achieve self-sufficiency. Government entities donate in-kind administrative support and the rental assistance and case management is funding by private business donations, grants and financial support from churches around the valley. The Canyon County program is currently serving thirteen families, with a total of 46 men, women and children. Those interested in learning more about C.A.T.C.H. can contact Christy Thomas, Program Coordinator, at 455-7138.

Family Practice

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Family Practice physicians can help with all aspects of care, maintenance and preventative services whether it be biological, clinical, or behavioral. Family Practice physicians are specialists in pediatrics to geriatrics and everything in between. In addition, many family practice physicians perform minor surgical procedures.

Many patients feel the benefit of a family practice physician is the relationships that are built by the entire family visiting one physician.
