CareSouth Carolina to Celebrate Community Health Center Week

July 31st 2023

CareSouth Carolina is proud to join the nationwide celebration of National Community Health Center Week. This annual event, which takes place from August 6 through August 12, recognizes the critical role that community health centers play in providing accessible and affordable healthcare to underserved populations across the country.

 

Every August, the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) sponsors National Health Center Week (NHCW) to celebrate and increase awareness of America’s 1,400 Community Health Centers (CHCs). 

National Health Center Week is an opportunity to highlight the commitment and passion of Community Health Center staff, board members, and supporters who make it possible to provide quality, comprehensive healthcare services to more than 30 million patients across 14,500 communities annually.

For more than 40 years, CareSouth Carolina has served as a medical home — a place where people can experience healing, caring relationships — regardless of their personal circumstances. As a community health center, we understand our patients to be part of our family. We are part of their community, and we deliver a comprehensive set of services that meet the whole need — from pediatrics to pharmacy to community outreach — all under one roof.

The theme for 2023 is “The Roadmap to a Stronger America.” Community Health Centers provide comprehensive care to more than 30 million patients at 14,500 service delivery sites in every U.S. state and territory. They are not-for-profit organizations driven by the mission to improve the well-being of the communities they serve. By providing highly coordinated and integrated care, Community Health Centers save the healthcare system more than $24 billion annually in reduced emergency, hospital, and specialty care costs.

EACH DAY OF NHCW 2023 IS DEDICATED TO A PARTICULAR FOCUS AREA:

  • Sunday, 8/6: Public Health in Housing Day 
  • Monday, 8/7: Healthcare for the Homeless Day
  • Tuesday, 8/8: Agricultural Worker Health Day
  • Wednesday, 8/9: Patient Appreciation Day
