Area medical clinics receive federal grants

The nonprofit Council of Community Clinics announced Monday that three of its member facilities — Borrego Health, Vista Community Clinic and Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo — have received grants of $250,000 from the federal Health Resources and Services Administration.

The funding was made available by the HRSA Patient Centered Medical Home – Facility Improvement Grant Program.

“We anticipate the patient-centered medical home initiative will transform primary care and, more importantly, improve the patient experience and health outcomes by providing higher quality, low cost care, close to home," Henry Tuttle, CEO of the Council of Community Clinics, said.

Vista Community Clinic plans to use its grant to help fund its North River Road clinic remodel. Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo will use the funds to renovate unused space and add radiology equipment in its Imperial County and east Riverside County facilities. At Borrego Health, the $250,000 is aimed at providing improved access to health care services in the rural community of Anza in Riverside County. The funding there will allow for the renovation of 1,800 square feet of space, to include five exam rooms, a lab area, a nursing station, and X-ray services.
