Capital Fund Supports Community Health Care Systems in GA
On April 1, 2020, Community Health Center Capital Fund (Capital Fund) provided a loan to Community Health Care Systems, Inc. (CHCS) to meet its cash flow needs and improve its liquidity.
The $750,000 loan will support CHCS expansion and efficiency improvement efforts in order to better serve its patient community. With 18 locations, CHCS provides health care services to underserved populations across 13 counties in rural Georgia. Seven of the counties are Persistent Poverty Counties, indicating a high level of economic need among the population. As a Federally Qualified Health Center, CHCS works to provide leadership and services in healthcare necessary to improve the health of its communities. The center offers medical, dental, and behavioral health services to individuals and families, as well as health education, disease prevention programs, community outreach, and enrollment services.
In 2018, CHCS served over 20,000 patients through over 73,000 visits. This loan from Capital Fund will allow the health center to continue to meet the needs of patients across central Georgia, and help promote 100% access to healthcare services for all.
