Cascade Comprehensive Care, Inc. and Cascade Health Alliance will celebrate the company's 25 year dedication to the Klamath Basin community with an anniversary celebration on August 26.
The 25th Anniversary Extravaganza will feature water slides and other inflatables, games, snacks, and other giveaways at Veterans Memorial Park at 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on August 26. In addition to the fun and games, event attendees will get the chance to learn more about Cascade Comprehensive Care (CCC), Cascade Health Alliance (CHA), and other community organizations. This is a free event, open to the public.
This celebration is a continuation of other activities CCC and CHA have undertaken this year to mark this milestone anniversary. Earlier this year, the company made over $1.2 million in donations to various projects and groups, and the company staff participated in a $30,000 park improvement project at Mills-Kiwanis Park in June.
"We are excited to host this event to promote health education and wellness for the community," said Tayo Akins, CCC and CHA's President and CEO. "The future looks great as we work collaboratively with our community partners to build a healthy community for the population we serve. We thank all our stakeholders for ensuring the success of this event."
Klamath Comprehensive Care was incorporated in 1992 by Klamath County primary care physicians to serve Medicaid enrollees under the state's new managed care initiative, the Oregon Health Plan. The company became Cascade Comprehensive Care (CCC) in 1995. In 2012, CCC started Cascade Health Alliance (CHA) as a subsidiary to lead its application to become one of Oregon's coordinated care organizations (CCOs) and subsequently began operating as a CCO in 2013.
Today, CHA serves more than 17,000 Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid) members in Klamath County, and the company and its staff are proud of its long history in the community.
