Allscripts Shows Team [Special Care] Spirit as Hospital for Special Care Marathon Sponsor

October 5, 2018

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (October 5, 2018) — Allscripts will join Hospital for Special Care (HSC) at the 25th running of the Eversource Hartford Marathon on October 13, 2018 as the exclusive sponsor of HSC’s Team Special Care. HSC is one of the marathon’s premier charities and fields a large team of volunteers and runners for the event each year, including adaptive sports athletes and patients from the hospital’s rehabilitation programs.  As a part of the sponsorship, Allscripts will support HSC’s mission, and the health information technology company’s employees will take part in the marathon Total Fitness Expo, participate as runners and as course marshals during the event and help out at the HSC charity village tent.

“The entire Allscripts team is incredible,” said Stan Jankowski, Chief Information Officer at HSC and 25 year veteran of the Eversource Hartford Marathon.  “As a technology partner Allscripts is helping us launch our electronic medical record across our inpatient units and they have been instrumental in helping us achieve recognition from the National Committee on Quality Assurance as a Level 3 Patient Centered Specialty Practice in our Autism outpatient program.”

Jennifer Carr, an Allscripts Outcomes Executive who works closely with HSC, will join Lynn Ricci, FACHE, President and CEO of HSC as part of a relay team at the event.  “This is what it is all about,” said Jennifer.  “I love having the opportunity to give back and to participate side by side with all of the members of Team Special Care.  Together we can support one another in reaching our individual and collective goals at the finish line and in patient care.”

The HSC Team Special Care includes patients, adaptive sports participants, hospital employees, board members, donors and volunteers. Several members of the team, including Laura Roix, who participated in the 5K in 2017 after rehabbing at HSC following  lung transplant, have been named to the marathon’s Aiello Inspiration Team.  “We want charities like HSC to benefit from the unique platform the marathon provides,” said Beth Shluger, CEO/President of the Hartford Marathon Foundation.  “This is a win for Team Special Care and for all of the patients at the hospital.”
