CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – Sun Life Family Health Center, Inc. (Sun Life) is among 810 Community Health Centers (CHCs) to receive funding to assist with patient centered medical home (PCMH) model and to ensure more women are screened for cervical cancer.
Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the grants, “Our health centers are committed to providing high quality health care services and these grant awards help continue these efforts.”
Sebelius’ announcement continued that these grant awards will provide assistance to health centers as they make the practice changes, such as care coordination and (case) management, and other processes necessary for certification as a Patient Centered Medical Home. The awards will also support health centers’ efforts to increase the percentage of women screened for cervical cancer.
Sun Life will receive $55,000 that will allow the community health center to continue to improve the coordination and quality of care the organization provides to patients.
