DUBLIN, OH (Jan. 19, 2023) – Quantum Health, the industry’s leading healthcare navigation and care coordination company, announced today that it has received the 2023 Medical Mutual Pillar Award for Community Service, presented by Smart Business. The company was awarded this recognition based on its commitment to creating a charitable environment in Central Ohio by partnering with organizations within the community to improve health and well-being for all.

Headquartered in Dublin, Ohio, Quantum Health has always been rooted in a deep commitment to community service. The company was founded by Kara Trott, now Board Chair, more than 20 years ago to help people navigate the complex world of healthcare with less stress, better health outcomes and significant cost savings. Through a variety of philanthropic initiatives, Trott has ensured that giving back remains a huge part of Quantum Health’s DNA.

“We were created around the simple vision of helping others so that no one would have to navigate their healthcare journey alone,” said Trott. “Giving back is a part of who we are, and we support this integral facet of our culture through a myriad of philanthropic programs.”
