RAHC Receives National Recognition

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, through the Health Resources and Services Administration, has awarded Quality Improvement Award recognition to the Rockbridge Area Health Center.

Awarded to the highest performing community health centers nationwide for achieving the best overall clinical performance, RAHC also received the highest level of recognition in Virginia for increasing the total number of patients served and the number of patients receiving access to comprehensive services.

“These awards help ensure that all patients who visit a HRSA-funded health center continue to receive the highest quality of care, including access to COVID-19 testing and treatment,” said Suzanne Sheridan, RAHC CEO.

HRSA provides QIA recognition to promote optimization of overall quality, efficiency, and value of the health care services provided by the nation’s 1400 plus health centers, and to celebrate their recent achievements in providing high quality care to nearly 30 million patients.

“The QIA supports HRSA’s strategic goals for community health centers to improve access to quality health services, achieve health equity, and enhance population health,” said Sheridan.

For 55 years, health centers have delivered affordable, accessible, and cost-effective, high-quality health care to patients, regardless of their ability to pay. “RAHC’s efforts are central to advancing a model of coordinated, comprehensive, and patient-centered care that is available to anyone in our community,” Sheridan added.
