Needs Statement

After much deliberation, the Community Health Centers of Sarasota (CHCSC) governing Board for Sarasota’s Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), determined that it was in the best interests of the 26,000 plus individuals that we serve, and in the best interest of our greater community that the FQHC continue to exist and serve as the safety net for greater Sarasota. To that end, the Board has been working to transition from a public entity co-applicant arrangement between the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County (DOH-Sarasota) and the CHCSC Board to sole governance by the CHCSC Board. The plan is now for this transition to be finalized in 2018. This effort needs continued and additional support and resources, the most pressing needs include funding for:

Background Statement

Community Health Centers of Sarasota County, Inc. (CHCSC), f/k/a Community Health Centers of North Port, Inc. (CHNP), is a private/public Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) partnership with the FL Dept of Health in Sarasota (DOH-Sarasota) that provides health care for residents of Sarasota County. FQHCs are not-for-profit, community-directed health care providers serving low income & medically underserved communities. The CHCSC has 3 service sites providing Adult Health, Women's Health, Pediatrics, Dental Care, Pharmacy, Laboratory, Mental Health & Substance Abuse Intervention. DOH-Sarasota has provided primary care for over 50 years.

In 2012, all primary health care at all FL Dept. of Health in Sarasota Co. (DOH-Sarasota) sites became part of CHCSC. In Oct. 2004, DOH-Sarasota opened a primary care satellite center in North Port, FL, then, known as the NPHC, to care for that area’s low-income & uninsured residents. To apply for FQHC funding, a 501c (3) not-for-profit corporation was established. In 2008, with Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) approval, the NPHC become the CHCNP FQHC in partnership with DOH-Sarasota. Under an agreement, DOH-Sarasota served as fiscal agent & provided primary care & administrative services and the CHCNP served as the governing board. In 2009, the CHCNP received HRSA Capital Development grant &, with additional funding from Sarasota Government & the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, completed a 17,000-sf renovation in 2011. Also in 2011, the Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center Board coordinated a campaign to erect a 12,000 square-foot state of the art pediatric facility on its campus. This center, located in a medically underserved area, opened in the summer of 2014 with a new name, the Sally and Sam & Shapiro Children & Babies Medical Center. In mid-2012, with HRSA funding for William L. Little & HRSA approval for Sally and Sam Shapiro, these additional centers came under the FQHC umbrella.

Over the past several years, the policy direction from Florida’s governing agencies was to transition primary care away from county health departments. To maintain a health care safety-net, the CHCSC Board of Directors voted to assume responsibility for transitioning the FQHC to a private not-for-profit. In collaboration with DOH-Sarasota, the Board has been working to minimize the impact of this transition on 26,000 plus patients. The goal is to complete the transition in 2018.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

Serving as the Board Chair of the Community Health Centers of Sarasota County (CHCSC) is a privilege. 

Our Board’s mission is to provide a broad range of primary health care services to all members of the community, especially the underserved, and to promote a healthy community through wellness and prevention services.  Over 30,000 people depend upon the Board to ensure that necessary health care is provided to them through our Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). 

Our Board is unique in that 51% are individuals who receive services from the CHCSC.  As a parent of adopted children from the foster care system, I had never encountered our local CHCSC; I have always had private insurance.  My daughters had experienced trauma and hardships in their young lives that affected their ability to thrive; an immersion into the services offered by the CHCSC happened quickly for my family.  I have experienced first-hand the passion of the doctors and staff at the FQHC in their care and concern for my girls.  I have nothing but admiration and respect for the tireless advocating these professionals did to ensure that my daughters received necessary health care.  In exploring how these services were provided to me children, I was invited to explore FQHC Board service.  I joined the Board as a consumer member due to my children being active patients at the FQHC.  After over two years on the Board, I felt I was ready to take on the leadership role of Board Chair and do what I could to help impact 30,000 people in my community.

As Board Chair, I lead a talented and dedicated Board.  Our Board is proud that Sarasota County’s health care safety net is being served by Board members who love Sarasota County and feel as if the needs of greater Sarasota County are understood by this local Board.  

Sincerely yours, Chritine Sensenig, Esq,, Chair
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
 In 2004, five very concerned North Port citizens saw the need for health care services to low income individuals in their community. There were almost no medical resources and even fewer for those who were indigent or lacked health insurance. These individuals approached Bill Little, Sarasota County Health Department Administrator, with the request to open a primary health care facility in a store front. Always willing to meet community needs, he gave the go ahead and within a short period of time, the Health Department’s North Port branch was launched. That agreement, sealed by a handshake became the seed for the Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) we see today in Sarasota County.

I have had the honor of serving as the Chief Executive Officer of the Community Health Centers of Sarasota County (CHCSC) since 2010. During my tenure, I have witnessed enormous growth in the number of individuals we serve, the number of sites we have under the FQHC umbrella and the type of services we provide. There has also been great deal of attention placed on quality health care and customer service. This is no easy feat in face of the ever changing landscape of medicine.

Today, in partnership with the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota, the CHCSC has three full service centers covering north and south Sarasota County that each include a pharmacy and lab. All of our providers are Board certified in their respective fields. We provide affordable health care to adults and children. We have preventive and restorative dental services for children and emergency dental services for adults. We have on-site mental health and substance abuse personnel. Acknowledging the connection of mind and body, we are actively moving in the direction of more integrated primary and behavioral health care.  

Our Board has embarked on the next milestone in the CHCSC evolution. The members have bravely committed to taking full responsibility for the CHCSC. This step allows the centers to be Sarasota-centric and meet the needs of our community. This is an enormous undertaking that will need the full support of our community to be successful. Given the civic culture and dedication to community partnerships and collaboration in Sarasota, we know we can count on you.

Sincerely yours,

Linda L. Stone, PhD, CEO

Short Term Success

The immediate benefit of our program is the availability of primary health care to individuals whose family income is less than 300% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). Each individual is screened for eligibility for a sliding fee discount and those who are at or below 100% of the FPL receive health care no cost. Those whose income is between 101% and 200% of poverty pay for only a portion of their care based on family sized and income.

Long Term Success By making primary care available for low-income patients, we work to reduce Emergency Department use for conditions that can be addressed in a "medical home". Additionally, we work to help avoid inpatient admissions for conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and/or respiratory diseases through prevention strategies including encouraging regular doctor visits, access to affordable medications and chronic disease case management. The CHCSC reports annually on 21 targeted health outcomes at least yearly or more often.

Short Term Success CHCSC staff recognized that individuals suffering from mental health or substance abuse issues are not as apt to care for their health. Therefore, we are following evidence-based guidelines for increase integration of primary care with behavioral health services. for our patients. Medical and behavioral health staff have been working together to improve processes that result in treating the who person.
Long Term Success

The benefits to the community of this program is the attention paid by the CHCSC to the "whole person". Many CHCSC primary care patents referred for behavioral health are homeless. In addition to their physical problems, they have  mental health and/or substance abuse conditions that interfere with self care. Attending to these conditions improves compliance with medications and other recommended treatment.

The CHCSC has been a long-term partner with the community Volunteer Interim Placement-Enhanced Recovery (VIP-ER) program by providing health care and related to services to indigent individuals in recovery for addictions at the Salvation Army. Additionally, the CHCSC has worked with the Sarasota County  jail to enable their clients to access health care.  Long-term goals include providing the assistance necessary for these individuals to sustain sobriety and mental wellbeing.

Management Comments by Organization

By far, the biggest management challenge the CHCSC is the transition of our Federally Qualified Health Center from and co-applicant arrangement with the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota to a free standing not-for-profit organization that will operate under the guidance of the Board of Directors.

With a grants from community partners and foundations, the Board has engaged the services of  several consultants and is continually working on a strategic and business plan.

Additionally, the CHCSC Board and the Florida Department of Health engaged the services of a consultant organization to help guide the organization through the transition. Consultant activities have five phases. Currently Phases I-IV have been implemented and Phases V and IV are to begin early in 2018.
The Board is seeking in-kind support and grants from local foundations and community partners. Additionally, the Board will work with the State of Florida to access accrued FQHC revenues.

Financials Comments
Financial Comments by Organization

Per the email received from Susan Geurin, on 4/13/17, the financial information for the CHCSC has been updated. The UDS revenues and expenses were added for 2014 so that the years 2014, 2015, and 2016 could be more realistically compared. Financial data for the years prior to 2014 were based on what was in the Board account and not on the FQHC fiscals. The 2016 UDS revenues and expenses information was updated to include Table 9E-Grant Information. When comparing the information reported to HRSA on the UDS reports for three sequential fiscal years, the revenues for 2014 were $18,039,892 and the expenses were $17,996,133;  the revenues for 2015 were $18,395,979 and the expenses were $18,189,937; and for 2016, the revenues were $20,956,117 and the expenses were $20,482,266. These figures show growth and were not significantly lower than in prior years, as the comments provided by the Community Foundation indicated.

As indicated below, an audit and balance sheet is currently not available. The fiscal agent for the FQHC will continue to be the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County until the FQHC transition is completed at the end of 2017. However, the CHCSC certifies its revenues and expenses to the US. Department of Health and Human Services-Health Resources Services Administration at the end of every calendar year. Attached, you will find these statements for 2015 and 2016.
The current financial challenge for the CHCSC is the transition of revenues from the State of Florida-Department Health Trust Fund to the CHCSC 501c (3). As indicated earlier, transferring accrued FQHC revenues will need to be negotiated with the state to assure bridge funding is available to cover expenses until the new entity is up and running. The second step in addressing this issue is registering the CHCSC with the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) to obtain Medicaid and Medicare numbers. Third is contracting with the various Medicaid, Medicare and private health plans. The CHCSC is adopting a new Electronic Health Record (EHR) allowing services to be billed through the CHCSC and revenues to be credited to its account. What has been articulated above are high level activities that must be undertaken to assure the CHCSC is sustainable.

While the Board files an IRS Form 990, as of the end of March, 2017, there is approximately $70,000 in the checking account.

Financial Comments by Foundation Financial information is taken from the state financial audit which covers all state entities and is not broken down in a way that reflects each county or co-applicant FQHCs. No balance sheet information is available for 2013.  Financial information for 2017 taken from the organization's Federal 990-EZ.
