Troy McQuagge might be one of the most notable people in the field of health insurance, but there is something else that he is also known for – his charitable endeavors. One of the main principles that McQuagge has lived by is helping the less fortunate people of society in whatever way he can. When he took over as the CEO of USHEALTH Group, he knew that he was now in a position where he could make a change on a larger scale. This was when he decided to start up HOPE, a USHEALTH initiative that focuses on offering support to members of society that have been victims of disease or natural disasters.
HOPE stands for Helping Other People Everyday, and something that McQuagge encourages all those who work at USHEALTH to standby. Since the organization was first formed, they have been able to fulfill their mission of helping people on a daily basis. Through the organization, McQuagge was able to achieve his dream of creating change on a large scale and has also helped people who otherwise, had no hope left in their lives.
The first project that the organization took on was to help the people who were affected by Hurricane Katrina living in the city of New Orleans. Even though it had been a considerable amount of time since the hurricane hit, the people living in this place were still trying to piece their life back together. The initiative by McQuagge has helped people in these affected areas get situated once again and has helped them lead better lives in the aftermath of this devastation that came their way.
Another initiative that McQuagge started through the organization was HOPEKids Arizona. This initiative provided aid to children who were battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases and disorders. Through the initiative, Troy McQuagge UShealth donated thousands of dollars so that they could give a better degree of care to the affected. After the success of the first HOPEKids, the organization decided to start up another center, this time, a little closer to home for USHEALTH, in the company’s home state of Texas.
