BELOIT, Wis.—On Monday (April 24) morning, Community Health Systems’ Chief Executive Officer Julie Sprecher presented the 2016 Community Health Centers Friend award to Rep. Amy Loudenbeck, of Wisconsin’s 31st District.
Each year, the Wisconsin Primary Health Care Association presents a small number of bi-partisan state and federal legislators with the award, in recognition of their support for community health centers’ work to advance access to medical, dental, and behavioral health care.
“I’m honored to receive the Community Health Centers Friend from the Wisconsin Primary Health Care Association,” Loudenbeck said, after a tour of CHS’s Beloit location. “It was great to visit and tour the Beloit Area Community Health Center to receive this award. I’m particularly excited about their forthcoming behavioral health services and increased access to dental care.”
Wisconsin’s health centers serve hundreds of thousands of individuals statewide, providing primary, oral and behavioral health care for hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin residents.
“We’re so appreciative of Representative Loudenbeck’s continued support of some of our state’s most vulnerable children and families,” said Sprecher. “We were happy to present her with this award, and glad she came to our Beloit Area Community Health Center to witness our growth and expansion first-hand.”
