Health Care Advancements and Volunteer Initiatives

In the 2000s we joined the “Blue Distinction Center” designation, helping members locate the best specialty care facilities in the region. We also established the Blue Crew associate volunteer program and held our first official volunteer project on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Since 2001, Blue Crew members have volunteered hundreds of thousands of hours to local causes and supported more than 100 diverse nonprofit organizations across the region, including those that are working to address good health and well-being, food insecurity, and education and literacy.
