National Health Center Week is an opportunity to acknowledge the work of local health clinics. These local clinics support over 27 million patients in the United States and build systems to provide care to individuals who may not typically access comprehensive care. These clinics allow patients with limited resources to collaborate with supports internal to the clinic and external to the community. These clinics are critical to supporting comprehensive care and are partners in the care of our highest risk patients. These clinics are also supportive in providing primary care for patients who may not have an established relationship. Establishing care is critical for accessing home health services to support recovery from acute illness and support comprehensive chronic care management.
