Health Assistance Intervention Education Network, Inc. (Haven), based in Southington, received a grant of more than $49,000 from Coverys, a leading provider of medical professional liability insurance.
HAVEN is a non-profit organization providing confidential assistance to healthcare professionals facing the challenges of chemical dependency, emotional or behavioral disorders, or physical or mental illness. HAVEN is committed to enhancing patient safety by supporting the health and well-being of all Connecticut health professionals including physicians, dentists, and allied healthcare professionals.
“We are committed to helping healthcare professionals provide the best medical care and ultimately ensure the safety of patients,” Coverys CEO and president Gregg L. Hanson said in a company press release. “With this grant HAVEN will continue its vital work in supporting the Connecticut medical community, and we applaud and support HAVEN’s essential contributions to this effort.”
Since its formation in 2007, HAVEN has created valuable educational forums and assisted more than 750 healthcare professionals. The organization seeks to ensure respectful and dignified intervention, to provide referral and supportive services for professionals, and to offer an alternative to the fear and stigma which often prevents professionals from accessing personal care.
The grant will further HAVEN’s efforts to support and monitor health professionals as the number of referrals to the program increases.
“HAVEN’s ability to support professional health and well-being is centered on partnerships with those who recognize the importance of our mission,” Haven Executive Director Maureen Sullivan Dinnan said in the release. “We are grateful to Coverys for sharing this dedication to professional health and committing the resources necessary for HAVEN to meet the growing demand for our services.”
