The Coalition of Orange County Community Health Centers supports a network of facilities that serve over 340,000 patients annually. Without us, thousands of people in our community might not be able to access primary and preventive care -- services that many take for granted.
The Coalition is the anchor of this network, securing millions of dollars in funding, providing key technical assistance and lobbying with local, state and federal officials on their behalf. Its work has helped secure federal designations that not only increase the amount of money the centers receive, but also the amount of hours they can see patients. In addition, these federal designations ensure the quality of care has increased dramatically for vulnerable populations. That ensures our whole community is healthy.
The Coalition works in a collaborative way, encouraging the sharing of resources among member health centers to promote time and cost efficiencies. Each day, we strive to improve the quality of health care for thousands of people in Orange County.
