Mobile City Council recognizes National Health Center Week

MOBILE, Ala. — The Mobile City Council presented a proclamation today during its regular weekly meeting in observance of National Health Center Week (NHCW). The celebration is scheduled for August 7-13.

Ben Reynolds, who represents District 4, read the proclamation to those in attendance at Mobile Government Plaza. Kelly Warren, Executive Director for Family Health, accepted the honor.

Family Health is the primary care division of the Mobile County Health Department. It is one of several Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) in Mobile County. Others include Franklin Primary Health Center, Mostellar Medical Center, and Accordia Health.

FQHC’s provide preventive and primary care services to almost 30 million people — including 400,000 veterans — in more than 14,500 communities across America. Health Centers provide care to people who disproportionately suffer from chronic disease and lack access to affordable, quality care.

The theme for this year’s NHCW is “The Chemistry for Strong Communities.” MCHD and Family Health have planned special events during NHCW to coordinate with the nation-wide “focus days” that showcase the innovative ways MCHD/FH provides high-quality health care and improving health outcomes.
