The Viola Startzman Clinic of Wooster is the third annual recipient of The Vicki Haines Legacy Award. The honor is presented annually by The Aultman Foundation to highlight a grantee organization whose project enhances the lives of others and displays the excellence of service modeled by Vicki Haines, TAF’s founder and former senior vice president.

TAF staff visited the clinic on Jan. 10 to present the award to Joel Chupp, interim CEO, and Brian Reilly, grants and program outreach coordinator. Vicki Haines was there to bestow the award, accompanied by Rick Haines, Aultman Health Foundation president and CEO.

“We are honored to have been selected for this year's Vicki Haines Legacy Award,” Chupp said. “To have our work recognized by an organization that knows the challenges of providing excellent healthcare and shares our commitment to improving access to care is truly inspiring. We appreciate the support of the Aultman Foundation and the Haines family.”

The clinic provides healthcare and seeks to inspire hope to lower-income, vulnerable populations in and around Wayne County. The organization was created in 1995 when community leaders recognized the large number of low-income individuals going without basic healthcare.

Vicki Haines’ years of service and leadership improved communities throughout Wayne, Tuscarawas, Stark, Holmes and Carroll counties.
