Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) participated in a community meeting with South Central Primary Care Center, health care professionals, and local officials to discuss the critical services provided by community health centers (CHCs) and solutions to fix the country’s broken health care system.
“More than ever before, community health centers in Georgia are being relied upon for high-quality, affordable care,” said Senator Perdue. “Rural health centers, like South Central Primary Care, are on the front lines of mental health, care for women and children, and the opioid crisis that continues to devastate far too many families in Georgia and across America. Not only do community health centers provide better and more convenient care, these clinics also save our health system more than $24 billion annually by reducing emergency room visits. As we continue to discuss ways to rescue our broken health care system, community health centers will undoubtedly play a key role in these solutions.”
