Fetter Health Care Network Receives $300,00 in Grant Funding from UnitedHealthcare Toward GroceryRx Program

Fetter Health Care Network (Fetter) announced today that it received $300,000 in grant funding from UnitedHealthcare to benefit its GroceryRx program. Fetter is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), providing quality, accessible and affordable health care to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

“We are overwhelmed by UnitedHealthcare’s generosity in gifting us a $300,000 Empowering health grant,” said Aretha R. Jones-Powers, CEO of Fetter. “With their support, we can make an even bigger impact on the communities we serve. Specifically, we will put this donation toward our GroceryRx program to provide mobile farmers’ market services, weekly nutrition classes and food vouchers for Charleston and Lowcountry region patients.”

As a community health center, Fetter provides comprehensive services for insured and uninsured residents in Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton and Dorchester Counties. Today, the network includes more than 20 different sites, a dental practice, medical labs and a pharmacy. Fetter is also currently hosting mobile COVID-19 testing sites in partnership with local municipalities to provide accessible and free testing to residents throughout the Lowcountry.

UnitedHealthcare, a UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH) company, awarded $1 million in Empowering Health grants to eigh community-based organizations in South Carolina to expand access to care and address the social determinants of health for uninsured individuals and underserved communities. Fetter was one of the eight organizations selected as grant recipients alongside the American Heart Association, Golden Harvest Food Bank, Harvest Hope Food Bank, Lowcountry Food Bank, Lions Vision Services, South Carolina Primary Health Care Association and Big Red Barn Retreat.

“This unprecedented environment has compounded challenges faced by South Carolina’s most vulnerable residents and created further barriers to accessing the health care and services they need,” said Wanda Coley, vice president of strategy and execution, UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement of South Carolina. “Our support of these organizations in South Carolina through this UnitedHealthcare Empowering Health commitment will help provide critical aid and resources to the communities in South Carolina that need it the most.”
