Berks County Medical Society Medical Record Spring 2019 - 23

One of the tenets that BCHC believes strongly in, is that to
really impact the health of the patients served we will continue to
need the support and the partnership of other health care providers
and health systems in our community. We believe that by working
with hospitals and other health care professionals to connect
insured, Medicaid, uninsured and other low-income patients with
our FQHC medical homes that we can improve health outcomes.
FQHCs not only improve the health of their patients but work
hard to keep preventable health costs down in the community.
According to National Association of Community Health Center,

Caring for the Underserved in Berks County

One of Berks Community Health Center proudest
accomplishments was the expansion of our dental services. Dental
services first started at the BCHC at 838 with 3 dental suites
but the waiting list soon swelled to over 800 patients. With the
opening of our 4th and largest site BCHC Rockland, a new dental
suite with 10 new operatories staffed with several dentists and
public health hygienist's expansion of dental services began. The
integration of dental services at the same location as primary care is
part of our goal of providing wholistic patient-centered health care.
Too often adult and children have ignored their oral health leading
to worsening physical health. The expansion of dental services at
BCHC hopes to be a start at reversing that trend.

health centers such as BCHC save 2,300 dollars per Medicaid
patient served. Nationally health care centers serve over 28 million
patients saving the health care system 24 billion dollars. This cost
saving is accomplished while also providing quality care. Health
centers provide high quality care often performing better on
ambulatory care measures compared to private physicians while
making great strides in decreasing health care disparities. Though
we are proud of what we can and have accomplished we know
that the work is not done. We believe and know that the job of
improving the health of our patients will always require a response
from the whole medical community. Our goal is to never stop
striving to improve the health of the people in the city of Reading
and Berks County. We know that the goal cannot achieved alone.
We believe strongly that improving the health of our patients
will be best accomplished when all in the medical community
and other service organizations in the city of Reading and Berks
County come together to achieve that goal.

"Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in
health is the most shocking and inhumane."
- Martin Luther King
