Details: BRCHS has been serving Hendersonville and the surrounding communities for nearly 50 years. As of June 3, Hendersonville Family Health Center (HFHC) is joining the BRCHS family! The transition of the practice from Pardee Hospital (Pardee) to BRCHS is part of a collaborative agreement between Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC), Pardee, and BRCHS to create the first “Teaching Health Center” in western North Carolina. Utilizing grants dollars made available under the Affordable Care Act, the Teaching Health Center program allows MAHEC to increase the number of residents entering its Hendersonville Family Medicine Residency. BRCHS will be assuming the operations of the HFHC, the outpatient clinical site of the residency program; and inpatient care will remain at Pardee. The goal is to increase the number of family medicine physicians training locally, increase access for under/uninsured patients, and expand the number of well-trained physicians choosing to continue to practice in western North Carolina.

Details: The North Carolina Farmworker Health Program (NCFHP) is a statewide Migrant Health Voucher Program within the Office of Rural Health and Community Care, NC DHHS. As opposed to a free-standing health center, NCFHP works with local agencies to provide care throughout the state to meet the needs of smaller densities of farmworkers. NCFHP responds to gaps in health care that would otherwise prevent farmworkers from accessing needed care. Our particular model relies heavily on enabling services, including outreach, case management and health education, as we have learned that strong outreach and case management services are an essential component of linking workers with appropriate services.
