The HOPE (Help Other People Everyday) program is a major focus of the USHEALTH Advisors organization and its employees. It is a core value of USHEALTH Advisors (USHA) and there is much evidence to validate this. The employees who work for USHA are not just doing their jobs, they are dedicated to improving the quality of life for others through HOPE. These employees consider it their mission.
The HOPE program was started by USHA’s president Troy McQuagge in 2010. When McQuagge became president the company was struggling, but, under his leadership, it has grown 10 times larger than it was previously. He also took on the role of CEO during this growth period.
The first project the HOPE program and Phoenix of New Orleans (PNOLA) took on jointly was assisting with the rebuilding of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2010. In 2011, HOPE donated thousands to The Crises Nursery, a non-profit that serves the Phoenix metropolitan area by giving infant supplies to needy families. The HOPE program continued giving back and in 2012 donated $25,000 to HOPEKids Arizona, a charity committed to children who are stricken with cancer and other serious conditions.
The reasons USHA continues giving back lies in the company’s core values. The employees, along with McQuagge, believe in helping others in any way they can. Personally, Troy McQuagge US Health believes that is the only way to live one’s life or conduct business. USHA’s Chief Marketing Officer Brian Clark sees it as their responsibility and mission. In addition, the organization’s Sr. VP of Sales Travis Yoder and Sr. VP of Marketing Bill Shelton echo the same sentiments. They believe people are just as important as the bottom line.
This charitable spirit has spread across the country to other USHA Advisors Agents who have taken up their own causes. In Brevard County, Florida, USHA worked with Homes for Warriors Project in order to renovate a home to donate to a military family. Another USHA office partners with the Wounded Warrior Project and donates hundreds to the charity weekly.
Whether the need is in New Orleans, Phoenix, or Brevard County, Florida, the USHA’s HOPE project is dedicated to helping. Their core value of helping others through HOPE is truly shared by USHA staff and management across the U.S. They are more than an organization focused on commerce as the evidence shows. People matter to USHA.
