News from Hudson River HealthCare on event during National Health Center Week:
On Tuesday, August 7th, Hudson River HealthCare is marking National Health Center Week 2012 with a breakfast served to staff by elected officials, the Executive Team and others, to raise awareness about the mission and accomplishments of health centers as local solutions, both throughout the State of New York and nationally. Highlights of the celebration will include a performance by the Center’s Culture Club youth and a groundbreaking to mark the expansion of services and increased access which was made possible by funding through the Affordable Care Act.
The theme of this year’s National Health Center Week, “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Powering Healthier Communities,” underscores how community health centers provide access to affordable, high-quality, cost-effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people.
This funding opportunity is historic in its significance as it represents an unprecedented investment by the federal government in community health centers and has the potential to expand New York State’s primary care system as never before, bringing essential services to some of the highest-need areas, enhancing health centers’ ability to serve more patients and creating thousands of jobs across the country.
The celebration will be held under the tent in the Garden Gallery adjacent to the Health Center, which is located at 1037 Main Street, Peekskill.
