Quantum Health Receives 2021 Smart Business Pillar Award for Community Service
January 4, 2021- Columbus, OH - Smart Business Network - On behalf of everyone at Medical Mutual and our co-founding partner, Smart Business, we welcome you to the 12th annual Pillar Award for Community Service.
The Pillar Awards recognize companies whose employees have gone above and beyond to invest their time and resources in supporting our community.
Last year at this time, no one thought a global pandemic would alter the world as it has. Medical Mutual, like you, had to react and adapt quickly. And like this year’s award winners, in the face of unprecedented turmoil and change, we held fast to the belief that we have a responsibility to support our neighbors in need throughout Ohio.
We are proud of the ways our company and our employees have dedicated resources to provide relief through the pandemic, but it is truly an honor to be in the company of such outstanding organizations that exemplified community commitment — organizations that gave back in remarkable ways through charitable giving, volunteering, pro bono support and more. We are pleased to join Smart Business in honoring the exceptional contributions these businesses have made, because we know that a united business community is far greater than the sum of its parts.
Clearly, this past year of unexpected change has not dampened our spirit of community. If I’ve learned anything, it’s that there’s no challenge we, as a community, can’t overcome. We are all in this together.
On behalf of Medical Mutual and Smart Business, we congratulate all our 2021 Pillar Award recipients.
Quantum Health partners with nonprofit organizations that focus on improving the health, wellness and vibrancy of the Columbus community.
Quantum Health is one of the most enthusiastic supporters of LifeCare Alliance’s annual gala, Big Wheels, sending employees to the event to inspire them to support LifeCare Alliance’s programs — like Meals-on-Wheels — beyond the event. Quantum Health believes in the Meals-on-Wheels program so much that it purchased a delivery van to help reach more individuals.
Quantum has had a long philanthropic relationship with local and national organizations and believes so strongly in giving back that it grants team members five days off, with pay, per year to volunteer with a philanthropic organization. And if an employee wishes to participate in a nonprofit organization’s event, Quantum Health contributes $100 in support of the employee’s efforts.
In 2020, the company best exemplified employee-driven community service, philanthropy and volunteerism by continuing to encourage employees to be involved in the Central Ohio community. While many companies discontinued or paused their Meals-on-Wheels routes, Quantum continued its route. That ensured there was no disruption in services on the days that Quantum employees volunteer and allowed LifeCare Alliance to focus route recruitment efforts elsewhere.
Through employee-driven efforts, Quantum Health also donated personal care items to LifeCare Alliance’s Groceries-to-Go Pantry, which serves individuals who are low-income and living with active cancer. After donating to LifeCare Alliance before coronavirus swept Central Ohio, Quantum provided another grant to cover the increase in demand of its health and nutrition services.
