Dr. Edward I. and Mrs. Barbara K. Gordon worked with UH’s Society office to create this endowment as a tribute to Dr. Gordon’s grandmother, who immigrated to New York from Poland more than 100 years ago. “Now, her name will live on forever,” Dr. Gordon says.


The criteria that Deb achieved in order to receive the $1,000 cash award are:

· A remarkably caring demeanor

· Remarkably competent care

Don’t worry, be Appy!

Apps are part of our lives now. Remember that slogan, “There’s an App for That”? Nowadays, it seems like there really is an app for everything — from games to shopping, fitness, beauty, hobbies and more. No wonder that almost 50% of all smartphone users download at least one new app a month.

New Employee Benefit: Virtual ER

Emergency Medical Treatment and Triage Expertise, Right at Your Fingertips

"In 2017 alone, UH employees made 226 trips to area Emergency Rooms, costing our health plan more than $40,000."

Fact: many of these trips did not require an ER visit. 

There's a better way. 

United Helpers is pleased to announce a partnership with United Concierge Medicine (UCM), providing UH employees access to Emergency Medicine trained providers 24/7, 365-days-a-year.

Congrats are in Order!
