Transforming Lives

Keogh Health Connection was founded in 2003 by Karlene and Kevin Keogh. Keogh’s mission, heart, and spirit are reflected in the lives of the people we have assisted since day one.

Keogh provides services with compassion and continues to succeed in a time of tremendous change. We advocate for the most vulnerable and have served over 200,000 individuals from diverse backgrounds. Keogh connects people to health insurance, nutrition assistance, and financial support in times of personal struggle. Keogh’s extensive network of partners allows us to help clients navigate our complex health care system and directs them to critical resources.

Outreach

In 2016, Keogh Navigators reached nearly 12,500 people informing them about our services and other available resources. We meet people in their own communities reaching them in schools, apartment complexes, barber shops, grocery stores, gyms, health fairs, hospitals and clinics, community centers and other local venues. These are the places where our clients feel most comfortable and live, work, go to school and play.

Enrollment

Keogh offers FREE enrollment assistance for AHCCCS (Arizona’s Medicaid), KidsCare, Marketplace Health Insurance (The Affordable Care Act), SNAP (food stamps), and TANF (emergency cash assistance). Our Navigators are advocates and teachers who care for and support our clients on the road to self-sufficiency.

Community Health Workers

Keogh understands that health is more important than health insurance. In 2016, we began to identify and train qualified Community Health Workers/Promotores de Salud to link health care providers and patients, identify available social services, and teach healthy living and disease management. Community Health Workers are not just an extension of core clinical services; they are key to providing effective primary care and supporting our goals.
