Quality is a priority at Community Health 

Community Health ranks among the top 20% of the Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in the United States. An annual review by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) used data and information from the 2021-2022 year to qualify Community Health as a Health Center Quality Leader Silver Award winner. 

Quality is at the forefront of our decisions

The HRSA Quality Awards is for significant quality improvement gains in these categories: 

  • Increased screenings for breast cancer, colorectal cancer, HIV and depression 
  • Dental sealant application  
  • Follow-up education provided when body mass index (BMI) is identified as out of range 
  • Chronic disease management on cholesterol-lowering drugs for cardiovascular disease 
  • Diabetes control management

Programs that focus on health quality and health equity

Prevention and wellness are the keys to quality care, which is why we focus on:

  • Patients at risk of chronic disease
  • Patient education and outreach on factors of health and health equity

What prevention programs are available at Community Health?

Our prevention programs aim to reduce the volume of patients receiving a chronic illness diagnosis. Some of the tools we use for early identification of risk factors include:

  • Annual wellness visits 
  • Pediatric development screenings 
  • Prediabetes risk assessments 
  • Diabetes A1c control
  • Providing information and education about hypertension or high blood pressure
  • Collaboration between providers and their medical teams and the care management teams
