HMA Client Selected for Health Care Innovation Award

The CMS Innovation Center announced the first group of prospective recipients for the Health Care Innovation Awards Round Two on May 22, 2014. Health Management Associates (HMA) congratulates our client, the Clifford Beers Clinic, for being selected as one of the 12 awardees.

Clifford Beers Clinic, a 100-year old mental health organization based in New Haven, CT, offers a wide array of mental health programs and services to children and families in the Greater New Haven area. They are being awarded an estimated $9.7 million to implement an integrated, trauma-informed, and family-oriented model of care to low-income families experiencing chronic and toxic stress. Their partners include Fair Haven Community Health Center and Yale-New Haven Hospital.

The HMA team of Principal Deborah Zahn and Senior Consultants Melissa Corrado and Robert Buchanan helped Clifford Beers and their partners develop the care model, financial plan, and budget for this project proposal. We are proud to continue working with Clifford Beers to implement this innovative project.
