National Health Center Week ’22

Salina Family Healthcare Center (SFHC) is a Federally Qualified Healthcare Center (FQHC). If the acronym looks unfamiliar, in short, an FQHC is a healthcare facility that provides care to those who have limited access to healthcare services, but welcomes everyone, regardless of ability to pay.

This past week we celebrated National Health Center Week to recognize and honor the mission of HCs mission and accomplishments over the last fifty years!

According to Health Center Week’s website, “CHCs serve as the beacon of strength, service, and care in their communities. In moments of pain and loss, they offer support and love. In moments of triumph, they offer hope and a vision for the future…┬áThis National Health Center Week honors those front line providers, staff, and beloved patients who lost their lives during the (ongoing) COVID-19 pandemic. From the very beginning of the crisis, Community Health Centers began finding innovative ways to provide preventative and primary care to their patients.”

This week our team celebrated in a lot of different ways, including:

  • Monday: Photo contest launch, Cookies from United Healthcare for staff
  • Tuesday: Lunch for all staff
  • Wednesday: Breakfast for all staff, Pop up Soda Shop for staff, Giveaway items for patients with McKesson
  • Thursday: Krafts with Kraft in the afternoon
  • Friday: Board Appreciation with gifts and breakfast treats

We would like to recognize our patients for making our work so much fun, community partners for supporting our mission, the Board for their time and dedication to helping others, and our staff for having our patients at the heart of all we do.
