Health center leaders are uniquely challenged to balance business requirements with the desire to fulfill the mission of their health center, while meeting the expectations of their community-based advocates.
The challenges are numerous, from staffing, to revenue, to competition, to compliance, to state and federal policy – the list is long. We often wonder how we will manage it all while still upholding our commitments to the communities we serve.
We sometimes need help, even if that help is simply having confidential access to someone who has been through similar pains and experiences.
