Why are Community Partnerships So Important?
At Southwest Care Center, we know that community partnerships are crucial to our ability to serve patients and help widen the circle of health in our community. As a Federally Qualified Health Center Look-Alike (FQHC), we strive to give everyone access to our high-quality healthcare and whole-person medicine. We believe that healthcare is a right and that everyone benefits when we partner together to improve the health of individuals and of the community at large.
In the spirit of this belief, we have a Community Engagement Department which reaches out to nonprofits, city, state and county government, foundations, community groups and for-profit businesses to create strong reciprocal relationships.
Because we make relationships and partnerships a priority and look beyond our four walls for solutions, we extend our ability to positively affect the lives of our patients and the whole community. By knowing what the community needs and delivering it, as well as actively seeking out partnerships in the community that can benefit our patients, we deliver services and support in ways that other organizations cannot.
