“Advocates for Community Health is proud to endorse the Health Center Service Expansion and Provider Shortage Reduction Act,” said Amanda Pears Kelly, Chief Executive Officer of Advocates for Community Health. “With the right investment, health centers can continue to fulfill their mission as hyper-local health care hubs, treating the full range of complex patient needs and helping entire communities live healthier and more productive lives. It is vital that Congress increase funding for community health centers, and this legislation is a critical step in that direction, supporting health centers as they address the growing need for more behavioral health services, expanded hours, new access points, and a robust, diverse community health care workforce. We are grateful to Representatives Blunt Rochester, Barragán, and Kuster for their steadfast commitment to ensuring a strong health care safety net and look forward to working together to ensure its continued viability.”
