Integrated Health Partners’ focus on community health center financial stability
IHP is working with Capital Link to Connect Health Centers to Capital Resources and Build Healthy Communities
Capital Link is a national, non-profit organization that has worked with hundreds of health centers and Primary Care Associations over the past 15 years to plan capital projects, finance growth and identify ways to improve performance. Established through the community health center movement, Capital Link is dedicated to strengthening and expanding high-quality, community based healthcare in a rapidly changing marketplace.
Capital Link assists non-profit Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and similar organizations by providing:
- Industry vision and leadership in the development of capitalization strategies for facilities and operational expansion.
- Metrics and analytical services for measuring health center impact, evaluating financial and operating trends and promoting performance improvement
- Direct assistance to health centers and complementary nonprofits in planning for and financing operational growth and capital needs
Capital Link receives funding support through a National Training and Technical Assistance Cooperative Agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Consequently, Capital Link is able to provide some assistance to health centers without charge or at subsidized rates.
Capital Link also works in partnership with the National Association of Community Health Centers and with state-based Primary Care Associations across the country to help identify, plan for and meet the capital needs associated with the growth of the FQHC system at the state and federal levels.
