Staff Care and Merritt Hawkins (both companies of AMN Healthcare), are proud to support National Health Center Week (August 4-10) with a $27,500 Silver Level Sponsorship. It’s an annual celebration that raises awareness about the mission and accomplishments of U.S. health centers over the past fifty years.
There are 11,000 Federally Qualified Health Centers in the U.S., which provide primary care, mental health, and dental services, regardless of ability to pay, to millions of underserved patients. As a partner, we’ve seen how important these health centers are to their communities and will be presenting plaques at several health centers during the week to recognize the great work that they do:
Affinia Healthcare – St. Louis, MO
Health Services of North Texas – Denton, TX
Healing Hands Ministry – Dallas, Texas
Valley Healthcare System, INC. – Columbia, GA
United Health Centers – Fresno, CA
Samuel U. Rogers Health Center – Kansas City, MO
“Rooted in Communities,” is the theme for National Health Center Week this year, and each day of NACHC week will be dedicated to a particular area of focus:
Sunday, 8/4: Social Determinants Day (Creating Nutrient-Rich Soil)
Monday, 8/5: Healthcare for the Homeless Day
Tuesday, 8/6: Agricultural Worker Health Day
Wednesday, 8/7: Patient Appreciation Day
Thursday, 8/8: Stakeholder Appreciation Day
Friday, 8/9: Health Center Staff Appreciation Day
Saturday, 8/10: Children’s Health Day
Mission-driven physicians, advanced practitioners and other professionals partner with these community health centers to provide quality, affordable and accessible care to millions of underserved patients. Merritt Hawkins and Staff Care also support these facilities by helping to ensure that they are fully staffed to serve their communities, in addition to providing thought leadership resources and informational presentations.
We are proud to be year-round supporters of these vital health centers, in addition to Silver Level sponsors for National Health Center Week.
