SpineOne – CASCA Member – Demonstrates Community Outreach Beyond Healthcare
[LONE TREE, COLORADO, 8/24/18] “Our commitment at SpineOne is to provide quality and cost-effective healthcare to all our patients” stated Perry Haney, M.D. “However, as a member of the greater Denver community more is required and we are involved in other issues as well. I became aware of issues impacting both the Jewish and Christian community in Israel and invited the parents of veteran Taylor Force to speak to stakeholders, referring docs and members of my ASC staff.”
Taylor Force was a graduate of West Point and then served with distinction in Afghanistan and Iraq. After his tour of duty, he began his MBA program and had the opportunity to visit Israel. While walking along the promenade in Jaffa he was attacked by a Palestinian terrorist and was stabbed to death. Subsequent to his death his father, Stuart, was made aware of both celebrations of his killing among Palestinians and that the Palestinian Authority was paying the family of the terrorist in what is called “pay to slay.” He was asked if he wanted to join an effort to pass legislation in Congress to halt this.
Stuart Force, the father of Taylor Force, came to SpineOne to explain the history of the Taylor Force Act which was passed this year. He played an instrumental role in recruiting Senator Lindsay Graham, his Senator, to be the Senate sponsor and Congressman Doug Lamborn from Colorado, who is a big ASC supporter, to be the prime House sponsor. The Taylor Force Act states that no American governmental funds shall be given to a Palestinian governmental entity that financially rewards terrorists or their families.
Simon Schwartz, Associate Director of the Colorado Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (CASCA) stated, “CASCA is proud of Congressman Lamborn for his efforts against terrorism and bringing attention to this Act and Taylor’s story to Colorado. We are impressed with Dr. Haney and his colleagues for showing the community by action that they care--not only about providing patients the best care possible, but by participating in a broad set of concerns that impact the lives of their community in Colorado.”
