Family Circle of Care’s Quality Performance in the Top 10% of All Health Centers Across the Nation!

Family Circle of Care, a federally qualified health center with six clinics in Tyler, Jacksonville, and Athens, has received the nation’s highest clinical quality recognition – The Gold Quality Leader Award – which is awarded to the top 10% of all community health centers in the country. HRSA, the government agency responsible for ensuring equitable health care to people who are geographically isolated and economically or medically vulnerable, oversees 1,400 community health centers nationwide that provide healthcare to more than 30 million people in the United States in 2021. Each year, HRSA reviews the clinical quality data of the health centers and awards quality awards to health centers that achieve the best overall quality measure performance. The Gold Quality Leader Award is the highest award a health center can achieve. 

“This is amazing news and is the result of our staff members’ hard work, compassion, and commitment to our patients, and the guidance and support of our dedicated board of directors. We are incredibly honored to be recognized in the top 10% of health centers nationwide and thank our patients for putting their trust in us,” said Chief Executive Officer Kristen Harris. 

Family Circle of Care serves the whole family, providing pediatric, ObGyn, family medicine, internal medicine, and behavioral health services. It accepts most commercial insurances, Medicaid, and Medicare, and offers a discount program for the uninsured and those with high deductibles and co-pays. It welcomes all patients, regardless of ability to pay. 

In addition to the Gold Quality Leader Award, Family Circle of Care was awarded the Access Enhancer Award, for significantly exceeding the number of patients it served over the previous year; the Health Disparities Reducer Award for improving low birth weight and hypertension control scores for at least one racial/ethnic group and exceeding national benchmarks on these measures; and the Patient Centered Medical Home award for earning independent accreditation by the National Committee for Quality Assurance for four of its clinics.   

Family Circle of Care is where compassion, quality & healthcare come full circle.
