CCHC Receives $76,500 Grant from LA Care Health Plan

Comprehensive Community Health Centers (CCHC) is pleased to announce it has been granted funding from LA Care Health Plan to support efforts in serving vulnerable and underserved populations.

Funding will be utilized to purchase adaptive equipment to support patients with disabilities. It will allow CCHC to provide and improve population and individual-level reporting capacity, improve provider retention rates, and increase access to care for hearing impaired patients over the next 2 years.

To address the needs of our patients with mobility limitations, adjustable exam tables will allow providers to properly assess their patients and address their concerns. Hearing devices will help our hearing impaired patients improve their hearing and speech comprehension when they are in our care. Patients will be able to more effectively communicate with their providers and reduce any misunderstandings that may occur as a result of their hearing impairment.

CCHC received this grant through the Robert E. Tranquada Safety Net Awards aimed at improving the infrastructure for community clinics. CCHC is proud to be a recipient of the grant in support of our core values to provide everyone with accessible, culturally-appropriate, high quality health and wellness services.
