Dr. Perman Visits the UK Family Care Center
Last week I had the opportunity to tour the UK Family Care Center with Dr. Jay Perman, the Dean of the UK College of Medicine. Commissioner Marlene Helm, the Commissioner of Social Services for the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG). UK HealthCare took over operations of the clinic about a year ago. Prior blog postings have discussed various milestones during this transition. This has proven to be a successful partnership between UK HealthCare and the LFUCG. It illustrates an excellent model of a "town and gown partnership." I appreciate the opportunity to work with Dr. Perman, Commission Helm and other representatives of LFUCG and UK HealthCare over the past year on such a successful project. As Dr. Perman prepares to transition to his new role as President of the University of Maryland Baltimore it was a pleasure to tour with him through such a successful example, which illustrates his passion for community based services.
