3 Mission and Strategy: The key element of the health center’s mission must be to improve the health status of underserved populations. Health centers must assess the needs of underserved populations and design programs and services for the underserved. They must measure the effectiveness and quality of their services. They must operate as efficiently as possible. Health centers must collaborate with other organizations.

4 Clinical Program: Health centers must have a system of care that ensures access to primary and preventive services, and facilitates access to comprehensive health and social services. Access for the underserved is assured through a sliding fee schedule and acceptance of Medicare and Medicaid. They are not “free clinics.” Services must be responsive to the needs and culture of the target community and/or populations. Quality of health center services is paramount. Services include primary medical, dental, mental health and substance abuse.

6 Governance: FQHCs must be a non-profit (501c3) or public entity The board must be at least 51% consumers of the services provided by the clinic (for both non-profits and public entities.) The board must assume full authority and oversight responsibility for the health center. The board carries out its legal and fiduciary responsibility by providing policy level leadership and by monitoring and evaluating the health centers performance.

7 Management and Finance: A strong management team is essential to health center success, ensuring that the health center is financially viable and cost-competitive. Health center management must be supported by strong personnel, financial, information, and clinical systems. Management Team consists of: Chief Executive Officer, Chief Medical Officer, and Chief Financial Officer of the non-profit or public entity organization.
