HCC's Toniann Richard Talks Rural Health

After more than a decade and nearly 50 new employees later, it's safe to say that the Lexington, Mo.-based Health Care Collaborative (HCC) of Rural Missouri is a major player in Lafayette County and in rural health care in this region. The rural health network emerged from an obscure two-person nonprofit organization to the only organization in the nation to have not one but four Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). These Live Well Community Health Centers serve Buckner, Carrollton, Concordia, Waverly and surrounding areas, and provide dental, behavioral health, primary care and social support service.

HCC and CCMH Partner to Expand Health Care

Rural health care has it challenges: provider shortages, transportation, access to specialty services and a high concentration of uninsured residents all make for an uphill battle when it comes to health care delivery. However, in Carrollton, there is good news. Last December, Carroll County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) partnered with Lexington, Mo.-based Health Care Collaborative (HCC) of Rural Missouri to co-locate a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) called the Live Well Community Health Center - Carrollton (1413 N. Jefferson). Services include primary care as well as pediatrics, well-woman care and Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals. Download entire release.
