RCMS Undergoes Site Visit by HRSA
Gualala, CA - April 15, 2013 -
Last week was a busy one at RCMS. The Department of Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) sent a team of consultants to undertake a rigorous, three-day review of RCMS' medical and dental centers in Gualala and Point Arena. This review, which is standard procedure for all community health centers, must be undertaken every five years and is a condition of federal funding.
"After intense scrutiny of all aspects of our operations we were told by the HRSA Team Leader that in his 15 years of reviewing community health centers,
RCMS was the best health center he had ever reviewed," said Diane Agee, CEO, RCMS. "This is a huge vote of confidence for our organization and reflects the hard work and dedication that our staff and Board demonstrate every day. It makes me very proud and thankful for our talented team," said Diane Agee, CEO, RCMS.
The HRSA representatives also commented favorably on the community support that RCMS receives, its successful fundraising efforts, and the programs, such as Urgent Care, Visiting Nurses and Hospice, that fundraising efforts support. RCMS is unique among community health centers in that it provides these services and must rely on community support to do so.
