Children’s Health Center named Service Agency of the Year

Oct. 31, 2012

The Children’s Health Center (CHC) at Flagstaff Medical Center was named the Service Agency of the Year by the Flagstaff Disability Awareness Commission. CHC was chosen for the award because of the center’s commitment to providing compassionate care to children with special needs, making a difference in the lives of children throughout Northern Arizona. For more than 25 years, Northern Arizona’s chronically ill and disabled and abused children have had access to comprehensive medical care close to home through the center.

In addition to the CHC being recognized, Glenn Condon, P.T., a physical therapist in the CHC, was recognized by the commission. Condon was awarded Professional Worker of the Year for his commitment to patients and families who utilize CHC services. As physical therapist, he specializes in working with disabled children to help maximize their independent mobility. Condon ensures his patients and their parents understand and are comfortable with the at-home physical therapy he recommends. Physical therapy helps each patient increase their mobility and quality of life.
The Commission also posthumously honored Nathan Avery, M.D., at the banquet. Dr. Avery was an exceptional pediatric neurosurgeon who brought care to his patients and guidance and comfort to families affected by tragedy and illness.

Flagstaff’s Disability Awareness Commissions works to “increase community awareness of the real contributions made by citizens of the community who are disabled; and to provide recognition for employers, employees, students, teachers, parents, volunteers and professionals who further the goals of disability awareness and inclusion in the community.”
