SCPHCA Recognizes State Sen. Vincent Sheheen


posted on Wednesday, February 08, 2012

The South Carolina Primary Health Care Association (SCPHCA) presented State Senator Vincent Sheheen a 2012 Community Health Center Champion Award at the SCPHCA Legislative Breakfast in Columbia, SC on February 8, 2012.  The award was presented by Ann Lewis, CEO of CareSouth Carolina, Inc. and SCPHCA Board Chair, as well as Warren Hix, Executive Director of Sandhills Medical Foundation.  Growing up in rural Camden, SC has led him to focus his efforts on improving the quality of life in rural and medically underserved areas of our state.

Sen. Sheheen has supported access to health care, improving Medicaid funding and promoting job creation. Senator Sheheen supported legislation to require background checks on in-home care providers as a way to protect vulnerable adults. He also supported Chandler's Law, legislation that requires children to wear safety helmets while riding all-terrain vehicles. Senator Sheheen has also been a proponent of ethics in government and frequently asked by his fellow legislators to lead efforts to improve ethical standards for elected officials.

Sen. Sheheen is a true friend to health care providers in rural SC and has worked to insure that all South Carolinians have access to quality health services. 

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.
