Family Health Centers of San Diego announced Wednesday that it received a Quality Improvement Award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for the quality level of its healthcare for patients.
HHS awarded grants to more than 1,200 health centers and clinics in the U.S. last week for their efforts in improving access to health care, cost- efficiency and quality of care. Grant funding came from the Health Resources and Services Administration. HHS reviews healthcare quality data from nearly 1,500 health centers around the country for the grant program each year.
“We are honored to be recognized for our continued work on improving access to high-quality, value-based care to the communities we serve,” FHCSD CEO Fran Butler-Cohen said. “Our recent visit from U.S. Surgeon General (Jerome) Adams highlighted the vital role that community health centers across the country play in addressing emerging health priorities and reducing health disparities to those most vulnerable.”
Family Health Centers provides care to more than 200,000 patients each year. According to the organization, their client base accounts for roughly one-third of the county’s low-income patient population.
