SCPHCA Honors State Rep. Bill Herbkersman

The South Carolina Primary Health Care Association (SCPHCA) honored long-time supporter Representative William "Bill" Herbkersman with a 2012 Community Health Center Champion Award.  The award was presented by Roland Gardner, CEO of Beaufort-Jasper-Hampton Comprehensive Health Services, Inc. at the SCPHCA Legislative Breakfast on February 8, 2012 in Columbia, SC.  

Representative Herbkersman serves on the Ways and Means Health Subcommittee and has been a consistent supporter of Beaufort-Jasper-Hampton Comprehensive Health Services, Inc.  His support has been vital in securing state funding for Community Health Centers.  His efforts in Beaufort County have always centered on providing all citizens the opportunity to improve their lives. As a developer, he understands that there is a direct link between economic opportunity, access to quality health care, health status and the quality of life in Beaufort and Jasper Counties.      

Representative Herbkersman is also unique in that he is approachable and always willing to listen to new ideas and innovative concepts that can improve health care delivery.  During last year's legislative session he led an effort to bring a medical home monitoring system to South Carolina aimed at improving access to home bound clients and citizens living in rural areas. 

Because of his leadership and constant support for Community Health Centers and his commitment to improving health access to all South Carolinians, Representative Herbkersman is deserving of this award.  

The SCPHCA is the membership organization that represents all of South Carolina's Community Health Centers, which are an integral part of the primary health care system in our state.  In 2010, the 19 community health centers and the statewide migrant health voucher program provided affordable, community-based, and coordinated preventive and primary health care services to over 312,000 patients statewide. Community Health Centers provide high quality primary health and dental care to all patients while reducing inappropriate Emergency Room usage, overall health care costs, racial and ethnic health disparities, and other barriers to care.
