Community Health Center of Central Missouri Celebrates National Health Center Week
Date:8/9/2013

Jefferson City, MO (PRWEB) August 09, 2013

The Community Health Center of Central Missouri is marking National Health Center Week 2013 with back-to-school physicals and dental screenings and healthy habits as part of a week long campaign. During the week, August 11-17, they will work to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers as local solutions for affordable and accessible health care.

As one of the bright spots in America’s health care system, community health centers have been in existence for over 45 years and have compiled a significant record of success by:

  •     Reducing income and ethnic health disparities nationwide, even in the poorest and most challenged communities
  •     Producing $24 billion in annual health system savings
  •     Reducing unnecessary hospitalizations and unnecessary visits to the ER
  •     Generating a system of preventive medicine that patients use regularly to stay healthy, thus saving lives.
  •     Creating a comprehensive care model that provides access to primary care services.

Health centers serve more than 22 million people nationwide and are increasingly becoming the trusted provider of choice for many families, whether they are insured or not. Evidence shows patients choose health centers because they are convenient, affordable, and offer a range of services from a team of caring professionals. Studies also show the quality of care delivered at health centers are at the same level of care delivered within the private industry.

Don Holloman, CEO at the Community Health Center of Central Missouri, stated, “At the Community Health Center of Central Missouri we realize that providing primary care services is much more than just providers and facilities
