UCS was honored to receive the Founders Award at Health Partnership Clinic's 25th Anniversary Luncheon. The award recognizes UCS' significant impact on the health and wellness of Johnson County. UCS Board President, Mike Hockley, and Executive Director Julie Brewer accepted the award on behalf of UCS.
In the early 1990s, United Community Services of Johnson County was a catalyst to what was to become the first and only Federally Qualified Health Clinic (FQHC) in Johnson County. County commissioners tasked UCS with convening a community committee, the Health Care Access Planning Task Force, on its behalf to identify and implement solutions. This work resulted in Health Partnership Clinic of Johnson County opening its doors in 1992. Today, the Health Partnership Clinic is one of the largest safety net clinics in Kansas, providing high-quality, affordable, accessible and culturally appropriate care to all individuals regardless of their ability to pay.
Congratulations to Health Partnership Clinic for 25 years of making a difference in our community.
