(APHCV) was among the 8 community health centers in Los Angeles County, and 15 in the state, who received Health Center Quality Leader Gold recognition along with other Community Health Quality Recognition badges from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
The digital badges are part of HRSA’s Community Health Quality Recognition badge program which honors a select number of health centers across the U.S. that achieve outstanding performance in a variety of clinical areas including behavioral health, maternal health, diabetes health, heart health, cancer screening, and HIV prevention and care. The program also honors health centers in the top 10%, 20%, and 30% that achieve best overall clinical quality performance.
This past month, APHCV received three recognition badges for 2023: Health Center Quality Leader – Gold, Access Enhancer, and Health Disparities Reducer. APHCV has received Health Center Quality Leader Gold recognition—placing in the top 10% of health centers nationwide—for five consecutive years, and this year marks the third year it has received Access Enhancer recognition and Health Disparities Reducer recognition.
Community Health Centers are federally qualified health centers or look-alikes that receive government funding to provide medical care and services to rural or underserved communities. HRSA Administrator Carole Johnson stated, “We at HRSA are proud to support and partner with these health centers, which not only provide care to patients regardless of their ability to pay but also consistently deliver excellent care that exceeds national quality standards.”
