Community Health Center recognized as quality leader
The Community Health Center of Fort Dodge, was recognized for ranking among the top 10% out of 1,400 health centers nationally for clinical quality.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced its Quality Improvement awards at the end of August.
The awards are given to the highest performing health centers nationwide and health centers that have made significant quality improvement gains from the previous year.
The awards, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration totaled $103,830 for the Fort Dodge clinic.
“We are a one stop shop,” said Renae Kruckenberg, CEO of the Community Health Center of Fort Dodge. “We want to take care of your overall health. You may come in with a sore throat, but we are going to ask if everything else is OK. Have you had a dental screening? Are you food insecure? We have a social worker on site, a financial advocate to assist with finding health insurance options and payment plans.”
