GEFCC Celebrates 16th Anniversary
On July 16, 2017, Greater Elgin Family Care Center celebrates 16 years of providing primary health care services. Our Sweet Sixteen birthday!
Like any teenager, our growing up has been full of fits and starts, good days and tough days, and many accomplishments with some setbacks sprinkled in.
But we’re maturing nicely. GEFCC is a leader in the provision of quality care amongst Illinois Community Health Centers, while also continuing to grow multiple times the State and National Averages and keeping our costs lower than the averages as well. Further, the volume of quality care GEFCC provides has only grown each of the past 16 years, and we presently also have the most Practitioners ever affiliated with GEFCC. Our reach and positive impact on residents of local communities has never been larger.
Although our pending adulthood looks very promising, there’s still several external influences which could impact us during this formative period, just like those present that could influence any teenager. Health care reform, funding mechanism changes and managed care all present both opportunities and threats.
But we’ve been raised well. We know how to listen, learn, implement, adjust and improve. And thus there’s every reason to be confident regarding GEFCC’s future.
Happy Birthday Greater Elgin Family Care Center! We’ve done a great job at successfully fulfilling our mission thus far, and I’m sure we’ll continue to do so!
