Tri-City Health Center welcomes Federal site visit
Submitted By Tri-City Health Center
Tri-City Health Center (TCHC) and its new Interim Chief Executive Officer, Zettie D. Page, III, M.D., Ph.D., welcomed a site visit from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) as a key opportunity to showcase TCHC's transformational progress.
HRSA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the primary Federal agency for improving access to quality health care services for people who are uninsured, isolated, or medically vulnerable. HRSA conducted a site visit on January 31 thru February 1st. The visit focused on assessing TCHC's oversight of compliance with key section 330 Health Center Program requirements as well as assisting TCHC in identifying areas for performance improvement during this transition period.
Dr. Page welcomed this opportunity provided by the HRSA site visit for creating an organizational learning environment at TCHC, covering the requirements for governance addressed in law, regulations, and policies. "HRSA's site visit will provide a much appreciated feedback loop for the TCHC governance body on the oversight of authority and responsibility," said Dr. Page, TCHC's ICEO.
Tri-City Health Center (TCHC), located in Fremont, was founded in 1970 to provide family planning services for low-income, minority women. Over the years, TCHC has expanded its scope and now offers high-quality primary medical, dental, and behavioral health care services for the entire family.
