INTEGRIS Employees Impacted by Tornadoes Receive more than $50,000 from Allscripts
The INTEGRIS Foundation received significant support from Chicago-based Allscripts, a healthcare information technology company, to aid INTEGRIS’ more than 100 employees who suffered significant losses as a result of the May tornadoes. Twelve members from eight states representing Allscripts Give Back Team presented a $50,000 check to INTEGRIS employees and administrators following a week of continued clean-up efforts in El Reno and Little Axe, Okla. Additionally, the company offered to match up to $50,000 additional dollars of Allscripts’ employee gifts – creating the potential of an ultimate $150,000 donation, spearheaded a goods drive, and donated $10,000 to Habitat for Humanity for rebuilding efforts. INTEGRIS employees pictured are tornado survivors or first-responding clinicians and staff at INTEGRIS Southwest Medical Center who cared for nearly 92 Moore area tornado victims who were treated in the INTEGRIS Southwest emergency room.
Allscripts provided these monetary gifts because we felt compelled to give back to a community where we do business and where some of our team members live,” said Paul M. Black, Allscripts President and Chief Executive Officer.
“It is a small gesture in the face of such incredible need. Beyond the financial support, our team members also wanted to be actively involved. The 12 team members, who spent the hottest week of June clearing wheat fields of debris and helping homeowners restore order, are an excellent representation of the caring employees at Allscripts. We are a company that gives back to the communities in which we live and where we do business, because we want to make a real difference in people’s lives. It’s also why we’re in the business we’re in. Our hearts go out to all in Oklahoma who were affected and who are doing the toughest work of all: picking up the pieces while comforting one another. Allscripts is proud and honored to be a small part of their recovery process.”
