Community Health Grant Awarded to CFMC
CASWELL FAMILY MEDICAL CENTER CHOSEN FOR COMMUNITY HEALTH GRANT AWARD
The NC Department of Health and Human Services awards CFMC with a $150,000 community health grant through the Office of Rural Health. Caswell Family Medical Center (CFMC) is proud to once again receive this grant supported through the North Carolina General Assembly.
The grant was given to CFMC in 2018 to increase access to primary care and preventive care for Caswell County’s most vulnerable, underserved, and medically indigent citizens. It allows CFMC to create or augment existing primary care and preventive medical services that are already provided and increase capacity necessary to serve low-income patients by enhancing or replacing facilities, equipment, or technologies.
“Caswell Family Medical Center applied for this grant as a federally qualified health center (FQHC) to better serve our medically underserved and uninsured patients in and around the Caswell area. We are very gracious and humbled to receive this grant for the second year in a row. It will allow us to continue our efforts in providing the best healthcare possible to our community and surrounding areas.” – William Crumpton, CEO, Caswell Family Medical Center
The award will continue to support the CFMC’s efforts to ensure access to a full range of primary care services for everyone in Caswell County. Caswell Family Medical Center provides affordable, quality primary care, specialty care, diagnostic labs, urgent care, pediatrics, psychiatry, and other medical services to the community.
The Community Health Grant application is a competitive grant process. Each application is reviewed by a panel familiar with the health care needs of our state’s uninsured. Reviewers represent such organizations as the NC Community Health Care Association, the NC Free Clinic Association, the NC Institute of Medicine, the NC Hospital Association, and the Division of Public Health.
Caswell Family Medical Center is committed to a vision of excellence and proudly serves Caswell County, NC and surrounding communities with compassionate, patient-centered healthcare since 1978. CFMC is a not-for-profit organization guided by a dedicated board of directors representing the communities CFMC serves.
