Nurse-Run Health Centers: Real Healthcare Reform
Philadelphia Business Journal -- Nurse-managed health centers are one solution to the growing shortage of family medical practitioners. They are community-based, nonprofit clinics run by advanced practice nurses capable of delivering primary and preventive care more affordably than a larger health system, especially for low-income and vulnerable populations.
“Their true potential remains untapped,” said Tine Hansen-Turton, executive director of the Philadelphia-based National Nursing Centers Consortium. “These centers can provide the foundation for real health-care reform that will work, serving tens of millions of additional families across the United States.”
