To kick-off the week-long celebrations, De Baca Family Practice Clinic will hold a town hall meeting and open house on August 13, 2014 to discuss health services and related topics with community members.

In attendance will be U.S. Congressman Steve Pearce and Constituent Services Representative for the Office of U.S. Senator Martin T. Heinrich, Ms. Iris Chavez. As part of the 2014 NHCW celebrations, De Baca Family Practice Clinic will participate in a health fair at the De Baca County Fair, to promote the clinic’s service.

NHCW is a weeklong celebration held to recognize the strides made by Community Health Centers (CHCs) and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) to deliver comprehensive, quality preventive care, regardless of a person’s ability to pay. This year’s event is themed “America's Health Centers - Local Engines for Healthier Communities." CGM salutes the efforts made by these organizations to increase access to comprehensive quality preventive and primary healthcare for the uninsured, under-insured as well as vulnerable populations.  

Chief Executive Officer of De Baca Family Practice Clinic, Lisa Walraven said, “The effective delivery of quality primary and preventative healthcare can only be achieved through the collective effort of various industry stakeholders. In an era of reform, collaborating with a trusted healthcare software partner like CGM supports our goal to deliver healthcare in an efficient manner as we strive for improved health outcomes.”  

“CGM proudly recognizes the unique contribution of CHCs and FQHCs to healthcare, particularly in regard to eliminating financial barriers of access for millions of patients. We continuously strive to provide innovative healthcare software solutions that support the drive for safer and more accessible quality healthcare,” said Werner Rodorff, Chief Executive Officer of CGM US and Senior Vice President North America.
