Customized Medical Needs

 

Customized Medical Needs (CMN) was founded in 2013 with the mission of reaching individuals and families who have been medically underserved. Our multidisciplinary approach is customized to each patient’s unique needs. During the first year of service, CMN was diligent in partnering with other organizations where their goals and mission could be aligned. In March of 2014, the prayers of the administrative team were answered and CMN forged a relationship with Liberty Affairs Assisted Living. Liberty Affairs Assisted Living (LAAL) is a 501(c) 3 veteran’s nonprofit created to assist veterans and their families with jobs, housing and healthcare. Founded by active duty military members, with the plan of providing services in Oklahoma, Hawaii, Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi, the organization will be revolutionary in the scope and potential impact it has on the persons that have so bravely served this nation. CMN administration joined the Board of Directors for LAAL; a talented group of individuals that have dedicated their lives to serving the men and women who so bravely protect our freedom every day.

Each of our organizations can begin their story with the desire to change healthcare and overall quality of life for the residents of the Tri-State area including Hawaii. A need was identified for services that were not traditionally offered to all people living with illness or injury, with a goal to treat the entire patient by providing a host of services for the individuals as well as their families. The services provided are designed to ensure positive patient outcomes as well as improved overall health and well-being. Together our clinicians have decades of experience, as well as the most up to date training in their respective field(s). Included in the services provided by CMN are: Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Skilled Nursing, Registered Dieticians, Speech Hearing and Language Pathology and Audiology, and Social Behavioral Therapy (Psycho-Therapy and Counseling). Our team of compassionate clinicians work together to personalize treatment by opening lines of communication with each other as well as the patient and the patient’s family. There is a heavy emphasis placed on assembling the team of clinicians to develop treatments to maximize patient outcomes and increase/improve quality of life.

CMN is honored to be a part of the development of the West Tennessee Veterans Health Complex (WTVHC). Our joined efforts will go towards building a strong health community for our heroes. The objectives remain the same; providing the highest quality of care to the medically underserved with intent to alleviate some of the strain on our already overwhelmed Veterans Administration (VA) system. This will be accomplished by providing therapy for those conditions often associated with wartime efforts. This inclusive care can be provided in either the WTVHC or in the patient’s home. CMN will also work dutifully with LAAL to purchase a mobile care unit to reach the veterans in the rural tri-state area. CMN has been, and will continue to be, involved in community outreach for all classifications, veterans and civilians alike.

CMN is excited to combine efforts with Liberty Affairs Assisted Living to become the most preferred provider of health services in West Tennessee. We see healthcare as an opportunity to change our community, our state, and eventually our nation, by providing transparent management and information sharing. The WTVHC, which is to house a variety of doctors, nurses, and therapists, will follow the same guidelines as CMN. This unique approach will ensure that patient’s caregivers freely and openly discuss total patient health. CMN and WTVHC will also offer wellness and preventative services, such as community-based vaccinations and early childhood care.

            As this revolutionary idea approaches, CMN will aggressively seek grants and funding from private and government entities. It is our collective desire to remain diligent in seeking the kind of care that our heroes and our community so desperately deserve.
