Last night, Baltimore Medical System was presented with a big (figuratively and literally) check from CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield for nearly $500,000 to support a new program for patients struggling with both behavioral health needs and chronic diseases.
BMS’s new program is the first of its kind in Maryland, and Baltimore media are paying attention. The Daily Record ran a story about the new initiative on the front page, and the Baltimore Sun posted an article on its website this morning. We’re always happy to get press for clients (after all, we ARE a PR firm!), but it’s even more rewarding to support a unique program that will help Baltimore’s underserved community.
