Family Health Centre, California
Project length: 9 months
Year: End of 2010/Beginning of 2011
Following the buy out of this California For Profit Rural Health Clinic in the Owens Valley, CA, FQHCmd was called in to do a review of the current business model and the potential of becoming an FQHC. After a complete financial review, FQHCmd was able to reduce costs by 22% annually (approximately $250,000). FQHCmd also provided and helped institute Clinic and Human Resource Procedurs as well as a complete overhaul of the corporate governance and compliance areas.
With the help of FQHCmd, Family Health Centre became a Not for Profit clinic and applied for 330 funding in late 2010. FQHCmd wrote the Grant proposal, and gained strategic partnerships with local dental providers, and other partnered organizations as well as met with the local Health and Human Service officials and other health care and community organizations to garner support.
FQHCmd also helped to recruit and train board members that would represent the community and target populations, institute finanical and administrative controls, work with local management in developing the Health Care Plan and Financial Plan, and performed an engineering review of the local clinic structures as well as produce detailed floor plans.
FQHCmd is currently working with FHC to recruit additional physicians and other healthcare professionals as the clinic continues to grow.
