South Carolina Health Leader Honored at National Conference

Yvonne Davis Award

posted on Wednesday, August 28, 2013

The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) has presented Yvonne Davis, Board Chair of Health Partners of South Carolina, in Conway, SC, with the 2013 Ethel Bond Memorial Consumer Award.  The award, which recognizes longstanding excellence and leadership in the Community Health Center Movement, was presented to Ms. Davis at the 44th annual NACHC Community Health Institute & EXPO (CHI) in Chicago, IL, a national conference attended by over 2,000 community health leaders from across the country. 

During the award ceremony NACHC Board Chair Gary Wiltz, MD, noted that Davis is a longtime advocate for the Community Health Center movement.   He said, "She as served as a Board Member since 1979, when Health Partners was just beginning and the health center movement was still a new and radical idea in rural communities.  'Von,' as she is known to friends and family, was instrumental in bringing Health Care Partners to her rural and underserved community of Marion. And still many years later, she remains committed."

America's Health Centers are local, non-profit, community-directed and federally-supported organizations that provide health care to over 22 million people in more than 9,000 locations.  One of the bright spots in America's health care system, health centers have been in existence for nearly 50 years and have compiled a significant record of success by reducing income and ethnic health disparities nationwide, even in the poorest and most challenged communities.  Health centers also play a critical role as implementation of health reform moves forward, providing patient-centered medical homes for the newly insured.  Health centers also generate $24 billion in annual health system savings by reducing unnecessary hospitalizations and unnecessary visits to emergency rooms.
