HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced new grants to support America’s community health centers. Part of the Affordable Care Act, this funding will help these crucial health providers reach 900,000 more patients:
“President Obama’s health care law is making our community health centers stronger,” said Secretary Sebelius. “For many Americans, community health centers are the major source of care that ranges from prevention to treatment of chronic diseases. This investment will expand our ability to provide high-quality care to millions of people while supporting good-paying jobs in communities across the country.”
Health centers improve the health of the nation’s underserved communities by ensuring access to primary health care services. Currently, more than 8,500 service delivery sites around the country deliver care to more than 20 million patients regardless of their ability to pay.
