Community Health Centers; All the Care You Need, Right in Your Neighborhood (#hhcinceverythingyou need)

For Release August 5, 2013

Holyoke, MA – Celebrate and learn about the Holyoke Health Center during National Health Center Week.  August 11th through the 17th 2013 is the week that recognizes the outstanding contributions of and services delivered by America’s Health Centers.  Holyoke Health Center will be showcasing its programs and Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse will be issuing a proclamation for National Health Center Week, at the Thursday Farmer’s Market on August 15, 2013 at noon.

National Health Center week is dedicated to bringing attention to health centers throughout the country.  Among the impressive work that they do, Community Health Centers are uniquely positioned to provide an excellent caliber of care to some of the most underserved communities in rural and urban settings.  Community Health Centers are operated under the direction of patient-majority boards, they reduce income and ethnic health disparities, produce $24 billion in annual health system savings, reduce unnecessary emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and provide access to care regardless of patients’ insurance status or ability to pay.  Yet, their role in the communities that they serve is not always fully understood.  For more information on National Health Center Week please visit www.healthcenterweek.org.

We look forward to seeing everyone during National Health Center Week at the Farmer’s Market on Thursday August 15, 2013 at noon.
