This was a big week for Plum Health DPC – we received a grant from the Motor City Match Program! This brings us one step closer to delivering affordable, accessible healthcare services in Detroit.
Crain’s Detroit Business wrote an article about the event (http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article/20161028/NEWS/161029834/nnamdi-food-and-health-businesses-win-motor-city-match-grants), and here’s what they said about Plum Health DPC:
Plum Health Direct Primary Care, $50,000: This health care facility provides an alternative to the traditional fee-for-service model. Direct Primary Care emphasizes wellness, prevention, communication and personalized patient relationships. For a monthly fee, members receive primary health care services that are tailored to their needs. These might include annual checkups, urgent care services and direct and unrestricted access to their doctor through calling, texting, emailing or in-person visits. The business is planned for 607 Shelby St. in downtown Detroit.
Additionally, Local 4 News in Detroit (WDIV) wrote an article about and created a video of the Award ceremony (http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/motor-city-match-helps-detroit-entrepreneurs-put-small-business-plans-into-action#).
Here’s what they said: “Six Detroit entrepreneurs are putting their small-business plans into action after the Motor City Match program awarded them thousands of dollars to get started. Mayor Mike Duggan made the announcement Friday morning.”
An article from the Michigan Chronicle (http://michronicleonline.com/2016/10/28/round-5-businesses-bring-new-services-arts-to-detroits-neighborhoods/) wrote about the award and quoted Mayor Duggan:
“Quality restaurants, health and wellness providers, arts centers are exactly the types of establishments that people expect when they think of a strong community,” said Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. “These Detroiters are proving that our neighborhoods are great places to start a business.”
This is another step in the journey toward bringing affordable, accessible healthcare services to Detroit and we will continue to work diligently to deliver these services.
