The executive leadership team at USA Health – led by Owen Bailey, chief executive officer and senior associate vice president for medical affairs at USA Health – recently visited the Mulherin Home as part of the institution’s commitment to community service projects.

According to Bailey, one of the top priorities for USA is University-community engagement. “Our team at USA Health believes in giving back to the community and connecting in a very real way with other organizations who are making a difference in people’s lives,” he said. “Our team has a heart for serving others.”

According to Ashton Hennig, manager of outreach for USA Health, this service project had perfect timing, as it was in lieu of an administrative Christmas party. Several times a year, Hennig plans these outings as a way to connect with the community.

“These efforts speak to Owen’s philosophy of servant leadership and the importance of understanding the community in which we serve through hands-on experience,” Hennig said.

Housing 34 individuals at a time, Mulherin Home provides meals, routine medical care, transportation and activities for individuals with developmental disabilities. While visiting the home, the leadership team served snacks to the residents and participated in Christmas crafts. “In addition to spending time with the residents, we each brought an item from their wish list,” Hennig said. “Three of our administrators have loved ones in the home, so that made our visit even more special.”

Earlier this year, the team also visited the Feeding the Gulf Coast and picked up litter along USA Medical Center Drive.
