Humana gives to Community Connections program

Humana Inc. gave $200,000 to Community Regional Medical Center's Community Connections program.

Humana gift helps Community Connections reduce emergency visits

Kasey Kure, 33, used to visit Community Regional Medical Center’s emergency department about once a week because of seizures and other medical problems. He lived occasionally on friends’ couches, but mostly on the street or in a shelter and he didn’t have a regular doctor or money to pay for medication – until he met Xochitl Valenzuela, an outreach specialist with the hospital’s Community Connections program.
