A Message From MCES CEO Bill Myers

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

As the CEO of MCES, which has a diverse workforce and serves a diverse patient population, I stand firm in saying that inequality, racial bias and injustice has no place at MCES or in the communities we live in and serve.

I was deeply shaken and profoundly saddened by the senseless death of George Floyd. I was also very inspired and hopeful, as I watched many peaceful protests nationwide demanding change. This is the time for us all to work together towards eliminating racial inequality, bias and disparities in our communities and in our nation. Hate has no place at MCES.

For me, this goes beyond just making a blanket statement. While words are important, actions are matter more. This is a time for action to affect change, and we can certainly start here at MCES by ensuring everyone is treated fairly and as equals.

These are difficult financial times for every organization, especially nonprofits. That's why we were so pleased to receive a $50,000 grant from the PHL COVID-19 Fund.

The fund is providing grants and resources to help the nonprofit community navigate near- and long-term challenges and ensure that critical resources remain available for those in our community who need them the most.

We greatly appreciate the support of the fund. We also appreciate the support of the MontCoPA COVID-19 Response Fund. Both donations will help us build better tomorrows for all those in need during this challenging period.

3D Printer Makes Masks More Comfortable

Friday, May 22, 2020

The continuous wearing of a mask, while essential for our staff, can cause discomfort, especially around ears. Enter Carl Leiby, a software developer from Plymouth Meeting. Carl saw a note from Mike Zosa, our IT Director, asking for help with straps that could be used with masks to relieve the pressure. Carl put this technical skills and a 3D printer to use and developed 120 straps for our staff. The first batch was so well-received, he produced a second batch.

Thank you Carl.
