Federally Qualified Health Center
As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), HealthPoint receives funds from the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) Health Center Program to provide primary care services in underserved areas.
According to the HRSA, “Health centers are community-based and patient-directed organizations that deliver comprehensive, culturally competent, high-quality primary health care services. Health centers also often integrate access to pharmacy, mental health, substance use disorder, and oral health services in areas where economic, geographic, or cultural barriers limit access to affordable health care services.”
As an FQHC, HealthPoint meets a stringent set of requirements, which includes providing services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay, charging for services on a sliding fee scale, and operating under a governing board that includes patients.
Patient-Centered Medical Home
HealthPoint is also recognized as a patient-centered medical home (PCMH). Being PCMH recognized means that HealthPoint strives to put you at the center of your care. As your medical home, we will work with you to create a plan of care to meet your needs and goals. More specifically, we can:
- Help you manage your health care
- Help answer your health questions
- Listen to your concerns
- Work with other medical experts, if necessary
- Coordinate your care through additional services
- Encourage you to be a part of your health care
You, the patient, are the most important person when it comes to your healthcare. Your primary care team will take time to get to know you and work with you to provide the most effective care possible for treating your conditions and meeting your goals. We want you to have the best experience during your visits.
You and your family will be involved in your health care decisions. You will be able to set goals and discuss with your provider what works best for you. You will share in the responsibility of your health care and the care team at the clinic will be involved in helping you meet these goals.
It’s not about the building. Instead, it starts with the relationship you have with your physician. The primary care provider you choose learns about your needs and then leads a team of health care professionals to give you the tools you need to stay healthy and/or manage a chronic health condition.
