Professional Healthcare in the Community
Professional Healthcare is active in its community. With our strong focus on corporate social responsibility, we pride ourselves in offering opportunities for you to get involved and share our caring spirit.Our President and Founder, Eileen DeCesare, is herself a breast cancer survivor. Her triumph over this disease and her ability to mentor others receiving treatment for breast cancer is something we as a company and family hold very dear. Each year we have added more members to our team and raised more money for the annual Race for the Cure, walking or running side-by-side in our tennis shoes, rain or shine. Each year this event proves to be inspirational on so many levels. Particularly interesting in recent years have been the creative ideas employees have brought forward to boost our fundraising efforts. These ideas have included: raffles and brunches with fashion shows, silent and live auctions and a "Country Store" in our office stocked with various drinks, snacks and treats. Professional Healthcare participates in races in Washington, DC, Richmond, VA and Baltimore, MD.Professional Healthcare has a tradition of providing home-cooked Thanksgiving meals to our patients. This tradition is a very special one to our organization because it was initiated by our company’s founder, Eileen DeCesare, who still insists on cooking the turkeys personally. PHR employees also contribute side dishes and participate in an assembly line designed to ensure that our patients have an enjoyable Thanksgiving meal, while other employees and their families are on hand to transport the meals to patient homes once they are wrapped and ready go.

Thanksgiving Meal Preparation & Distribution
"It was especially wonderful to see the faces of our patients light up when Thanksgiving meals were delivered to their homes. They didn’t even have to say anything—it was "written" in their smiles."
