JACKSON, MI-- The Center for Family Health has scored the highest marks possible in a review by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
During an inspection called an operational site visit, HRSA found the Center measures up to state and federal standards for federally qualified health centers in all 19 of 19 key areas.
“This verifies that our board and leadership comply with laws and regulations while pursuing the Center’s mission to provide affordable health care,” said Molly Kaser, President and CEO of the Center.
“Generally speaking, few health centers get compliance in all 19 areas, so we passed with flying colors,” Kaser said.
“We are thrilled to be receiving this distinction,” said board Chairman Steven Hogwood. “The Center also received this distinction three years ago, and we are excited about what is says about our work. We hope the community will celebrate with us the great things that are happening at the Center for Family Health.”
HRSA performs operational site visits at least once every three years. The Center for Family Health's most recent site visit came over three days in August, and findings were recently issued in a 33-page report.
The 19 areas reviewed focus on clinical, financial, governance and administrative requirements. The overall purpose is to make sure systems and procedures are in place to show federally qualified health centers hold themselves accountable for meeting all applicable laws and regulations.
