For millions of Americans, health centers provide much needed preventive and primary care. This year, National Health Center Week runs from August 11th through the 17th. In recognition of this event, we’ve compiled some information about health centers.
As you can see, health centers are a critical health care resource for a significant portion of the population. What’s more, health centers are a leading source of care for those who are living in poverty and/or without health insurance. As portions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are implemented, health centers should see an increase in patients.
