Formé Medical Center: Our Mission, Your Care- We Promise to Aid!

By: Maria Trusa

As we continue with our efforts of providing affordable and attainable healthcare, we are relentlessly educating ourselves on the facts and areas of focus for the uninsured.  How can we make a difference?  Attempting to discover new possibilities for those in need, we, at Formé, are excited to share the upcoming introduction of our non-profit organization, Promise to Aid, Inc. 

Enthused with our current Monthly Subscription Medical Membership Model and its endless prospects towards preventive care, we felt compelled to continue exploring other needs of the uninsured.  Providing affordable healthcare has been a stepping stone toward other extensive care needs such as high cost diagnostic testing, rehabilitation services and/or more importantly surgical procedures.  We realize that the limitations to care are still eminent as we are witness to patients in need of funding for hip replacements and many other high cost procedures.  It is evident affordable healthcare is still a factor.  With that in mind, Promise to Aid, Inc., was established.  Our mission is to enable the under-served, uninsured communities with the ability to gain access to much needed funding for educational, medical and surgical care regardless of culture and economic status.  The organization will raise funds to initiate educational health programs, in addition to financially assisting patients with extraordinarily high cost medical services.

With the fragmentation of healthcare and our willingness to bring about change, we set out to educate and seek support from our community partners.  The willingness to be a part of our mission and help revolutionize healthcare has been overwhelming.  State initiatives continuing to fund resources and other available granting opportunities have created a foundation for our mission bringing great promise to the community.

We are confident Promise to Aid, Inc. will make a dramatic impact on the community in addition to reducing the cost of healthcare.  Having the ability to assist patients with the appropriate and necessary care needs will improve health outcomes tremendously; lending to the prevention of increased avoidable emergency room visits and hospitalizations.

We are humbly privileged to be able to help the community in need.  Further updates on the inauguration of our non-profit, Promise to Aid, Inc. to follow.

With a strong foundation at our Center that includes an array of needed preventive medical services, we were able to create a Medical Membership Model that mirrors a gym membership concept. Our vision of this incredible offer is to ensure that all social classes in the community have access to preventive healthcare and achieve favorable health outcomes but most importantly, have the choice to choose an affordable plan that works for you.  Our efforts are endless as we are focused on helping the uninsured community.  Current and upcoming collaborations with Westchester Medical Center and Montefiore, will provide additional resources to our new Membership model.

CEO of Forme Medical Center, Maria Trusa, joins United Way of Westchester and Putnam Board of Directors

The United Way of Westchester and Putnam announced that Maria Trusa, CEO of Forme Medical Center and Urgent Care, has been appointed to its Board of Directors effective April 11th, 2018.

The mission of United Way of Westchester and Putnam is to provide stability and promise to the people and families of Westchester and Putnam who are living life from behind. Alana Sweeny, President and CEO of United Way said “Maria absolutely transformed Scarsdale Medical Practice, now one of the premier healthcare organizations in our Counties. And in Formé, she’s innovating brilliantly to bring quality healthcare, in a medical membership model, to the uninsured individuals and families in desperate need. She is no less than a perfect addition to our board.”

Maria was the Executive Director of the Scarsdale Medical Group, a successful multi-specialty medical practice in Westchester, NY. With a trajectory of 26 years at Scarsdale, she decided to venture out and join forces with her business partner Gina Cappelli at Formé Medical Center in an effort to assist others in need. As CEO, Maria stands proudly and tenaciously behind Formé Medical Center, a Social Enterprise practice that offers high-quality, dignified medical care to residents and undocumented immigrants of Westchester County and surrounding communities.

“What a privilege to be part of such an historic entity,” said Ms. Trusa, “ Just like Formé, United Way of Westchester and Putnam is working on the front edges of innovation to make a lasting impact on so many.”

After a year and a half of working on a Medical Membership Model, Maria and Gina Cappelli developed a medical membership concept comprised of three levels of care, which will allow thousands in our Counties to access quality preventative care. There are no co-pays, deductibles or additional payments required for these services. Says Ms. Trusa, “The Formé approach shapes to the lives of our patients, rather than asking patients to shape their lives around traditional and inaccessible forms of medical care.”
