DeKalb County Community Foundation awards grant to GEFCC

GEFCC receives grant from DCCF

Greater Elgin Family Care Center (GEFCC) is pleased to announce that it has received a grant from the DeKalb County Community Foundation (DCCF) to support our Center for Family Health (CFH) in Sycamore, IL! Funds will be used to deploy mobile workstation carts in CFH exam rooms, which will increase care team productivity and lead to better patient care.

This grant award marks DCCF’s third investment in CFH. The foundation has previously supported the deployment of advanced pediatric vision screeners and the replacement of vital exam room diagnostic equipment and table tops. GEFCC is honored that DCCF has again chosen to invest in CFH to further our mission of providing quality, affordable health care to all, including those without the ability to pay.

Previously operated by KishHealth, the Center for Family Health in Sycamore was transferred to GEFCC in December of 2013 when the organization assumed full responsibility for operations, thus converting the health center to the area’s first Federally Qualified Health Center.
