For Immediate Release

CARE RESOURCE EXPANDS THEIR SERVICES SOUTH

MIAMI, FL. (May 7, 2014)

Care Resource, a nonprofit organization and Federally Qualified Health Center serving residents in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties was recently awarded funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) through a Service Area Competition (SAC) grant to serve the areas of Little Havana, Shenandoah, Little Gables, North Coral Gables, Historic Coral Way and the City of Miami.

Individuals in these areas, especially those that are at or below the 200% Federal Poverty Level, will have access to a range of services that include adult primary care, pediatrics, gynecology, case management, family planning, outpatient mental health and substance abuse, HIV counseling and testing and primary care, and referrals to such other services as inpatient substance abuse treatment or specialty care. Most services will be provided on a sliding fee scale and regardless of the ability of the patient to pay.

According to Care Resource Chief Executive Officer Rick Siclari, M.B.A., “We are honored and proud to have been awarded funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration/Bureau of Primary Health Care. This funding will ensure that the unmet healthcare needs of those living in the areas mentioned above are addressed. As this will be Care Resource’s fourth office in South Florida, we are looking forward to again improving the health of individuals and families in our community. This new office is scheduled to begin accepting clients on September 1, 2014.”

Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) like Care Resource must serve an underserved area or population, offer a sliding fee scale, provide comprehensive services, have an ongoing quality assurance program and have a governing board of directors.
