Health centers to care for the uninsured, underinsured
Federal funding will allow Greater Elgin Family Care Center to take over KishHealth System’s Center for Family Health in Sycamore and to operate the county’s first federally-qualified health centers (FQHC).
The Greater Elgin Family Care Center, or GEFCC, will operate FQHC sites in Sycamore and DeKalb. Both are projected to open this winter. FQHCs provide primary health care and other services to people who are uninsured and/or publicly insured.
Details have yet to be finalized, but GEFCC will absorb the services KishHealth provides at the Center for Family Health and similar services offered by the DeKalb County Health Department at its Annie Glidden Road campus. Staff employed at the Center for Family Health are expected to continue working there after the transition, and patient care should be uninterrupted.
