CHC Hosts PCMS Executive Director

Community Health Care welcomed Pierce County Medical Society Executive Director Bruce Ehrle for a tour of their Hilltop Family Medical Clinic in Tacoma on January 13, 2016.  During the tour conducted by CHC staff leaders he was shown the multiple care delivery centers at the facility that assist many patients in Pierce County including those on Medicaid and ACA policies such as the urgent care, dental clinic, pharmacy, and Ryan White HIV Program as well as the community outreach program that connects patients with other resources they need such as social service assistance.  Following the tour, he was presented with a 2016 membership dues check to PCMS for physicians and PAs working at all CHC facilities throughout Pierce County. This follows remarks about the current endeavors of the Society that he presented at a CHC Provider Meeting conducted at their Eastside Medical Clinic in December.  As PCMS works alongside health care providers throughout the county as part of its community engagement activities, the interactions with CHC at their Provider Meetings and the Hilltop Clinic tour are important examples of opportunities for coordination and learning.
