Keeping doctors safe: Valley Family Health Care benefits from donation of PPE supplies


As health-care workers at health centers across Idaho continue to combat novel coronavirus COVID-19 on the front lines, the Idaho Primary Care Association has come through to support them with the help of the Oregon-based Cambia Health Foundation. The foundation created a $200,000 grant for the purchase of personal protective equipment by the Association. Benefiting locally is Valley Family Health Services.

At an unpacking event at its Payette clinic on Friday, Valley Family Health CEO Tim Heinze expressed gratitude for the donation of these supplies. Valley Family Health is one of 16 nonprofit health-care providers in Idaho to receive from these donations.

“They are constantly looking out for ways to support the community health centers in the state,” Heinze said.

Delivering the supplies to their clinic was a small team from the Idaho Primary Care Association, which in Payette was joined by CEO Yvonne Ketchum-Ward, who expressed excitement.
