FHC honored for Q.I.
BALDWIN – Family Health Care (FHC) is pleased to announce it is one of 10 health centers in the State of Michigan named a Quality Improvement Leader for fiscal year 2017. This designation is made by the Health Resource and Services Administration (HRSA).
Health Center Quality Leaders are among the top 30% of all HRSA-supported health centers that achieved the best overall clinical outcomes, demonstrating high-quality across their clinical operations. Characteristics of a Quality Improvement leader include quality of care with positive, long-term health outcomes focused specifically on low birthweight, controlled hypertension, and controlled diabetes.
“This national recognition would not be possible without the dedication and compassion our staff shows by living our organization’s mission,” said Kathy Sather, President/CEO of Family Health Care. “We strive on a daily basis to ensure every patient receives the best possible care with a focus on their overall health and well-being.”
The Bureau of Primary Health Care Digest stated, “As part of HRSA’s commitment to recognize health centers as quality leaders, we recently delivered Health Center Quality certificates to the 47 National Quality Leaders and 393 Health Center Quality Leaders. This effort follows the August 2017 Quality Improvement Awards of nearly $105 million to 1,333 health centers to recognize the highest performing health centers nationwide, as well as those health centers that have made significant quality improvement gains.”
