Pediatric Home Service Medical Director Joins Spare Key Board of Directors

St. Paul, Minn.Pediatric Home Service (PHS) Medical Director Roy Maynard, M.D., has joined the Spare Key Board of Directors. In this role, he will provide insight and guidance to the nonprofit organization as it continues to assist families and expand its network.

Entering its 16th year of operation in 2013, Spare Key provides mortgage payments for families who have seriously ill or critically injured children in the hospital to better ensure parents will be able to remain present and active in their children’s care.

With the parallels in mission, the partnership between Pediatric Home Service and Spare Key that has existed for 3 years will be made stronger with Dr. Maynard joining the board.

“PHS and Spare Key have always had a natural connection through their common goal – keeping families together,” said Dr. Maynard. “As more patients are receiving their medical care at home, I look forward to collaborating with other members of the board to expand the opportunities Spare Key has to serve families in the area.”

As the organization moves forward, and with the input of Dr. Maynard, it plans to adjust the eligibility guidelines to include patients who are being treated through homecare as well as those who are in the hospital.
