Capstone Health: Top 2023 Community Health Center Quality Awardee in the Nation

Capstone Health receives recognition as one of the Top 2023 Community Health Center Quality and Public Health Champion awardees in the nation. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), announced the Top 20% of health centers receiving Community Health Quality Recognition (CHQR) badges for their achievements in improving health outcomes and providing high-quality care for patients in rural and underserved communities.

The CHQR badge program honors the health centers across the country that have attained the best overall clinical quality performance. This includes a variety of clinical areas, such as behavioral health, maternal health, diabetes health, heart health, cancer screening, and HIV prevention and care, as well as overall quality performance.

Capstone Health believes quality, complete health care is for everyone. Capstone Health provides access to affordable primary, preventative, and wellness services distinguished by mission, vision, integrity, and respect in Walker County, Winston County, and surrounding areas.

Today, approximately 1,400 HRSA-supported health centers operate nearly 15,000 service sites. In 2022, health centers provided care for more than 30 million patients, 90% of whom had incomes below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
