Duke City Clinic Touted as "Model of the Future"

The intent of community health care is to provide routine primary care for low-income patients who otherwise would seek care at costly hospital emergency rooms, Sebelius said.

“This model of high-quality, lower-cost health-care delivery is something that needs to be expanded throughout the country,” Sebelius said after a tour of First Choice Community Healthcare’s South Broadway Clinic.
