Medical and Oral Health Supplies and Equipment Will Support Five Health Centers in High-Need Neighborhoods

MELVILLE, N.Y., April 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC) today announced that it has donated

more than $80,000 in health supplies and equipment to the Children's Aid Society to support five health centers located in high-need communities throughout New York City. The donation is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the company's global corporate social responsibility program.

As part of the donation, Henry Schein provided the Children's Aid Society with hearing test kits, HIV test kits, dental radiography equipment, and other health care supplies to enhance its ability to deliver high-quality, comprehensive health services to children and families in need. The supplies will help equip three health centers located in Manhattan, one in Staten Island, and one in the Bronx.

"We are extremely grateful to Henry Schein for its generous donation to our health care centers, which ensure children and youth have access to high-quality medical, dental, and mental health services," said Children's Aid Society President and CEO Phoebe Boyer. "These supplies and equipment will surely enrich our health services in our school- and community-based health centers in some of New York City's most under-resourced communities, offering critical improvements to our service delivery."

The Children's Aid Society serves the needs of underserved children and their families at more than 40 locations in New York City and Westchester County, providing children with access to health care, academic support, extracurricular activities, and college and job preparatory training programs. The organization also provides a range of family services, including prenatal counseling, housing assistance, and domestic violence counseling.

"We at Henry Schein are pleased to support the Children's Aid Society in its efforts to expand access to medical and oral health care for underserved children and families throughout New York City," said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein. "This donation does more than help this organization grow its capacity to provide a range of health services; it enhances its ability to help create healthier, happier, and stronger communities."
