BCBSM Award Grant given to the Holland Free Health Clinic

HFHC recently received a $25,000 grant from the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan to help fund coordinated care for the underserved and uninsured people of the Ottawa community. The grant was a part of Blue Cross' Strengthening the Safety Net Program.  Jeff Compagner, the executive director of HFHC, responded, "This generous grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan will help us continue to help hundreds of our neighbors get healthier and improve their lives." 

At Holland Free Health Clinic, people come with painful medical crises but have not received care due to their financial situation. For many clients, money must pay for groceries rather than a much-needed medication. Others cannot perform daily tasks of living due to poor vision and the inability to afford prescription glasses. Thanks to this generous grant, HFHC can continue serving these patients to allow them to live healthy lives. Read on...
