HHS Awards More than $100 Million to Improve Health Center Quality

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced more than $100 million to 1,304 health centers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the 5 U.S. territories and the 3 Freely Associated States to invest in health center quality improvement, building upon their achievements in providing high quality comprehensive care. Health centers will use these funds to expand current quality improvement systems and infrastructure and to improve primary care service delivery in the communities they serve.

“Millions of Americans rely on health centers to provide them with quality health care,” said Dr. Mary Wakefield, HHS Acting Deputy Secretary. “These quality improvement awards will support health centers to continue to deliver superior health care that engages patients, improves care coordination and bridges overall access to care.”
