MPCA provides an array of programs, services, representation, training and technical assistance to its members to strengthen organizational operations and expand organizational capacity. As a membership organization we also provide a forum for sharing information and fostering partnerships to create a community of community health centers.
MPCA offers three levels of membership (organizational, affiliate and associate membership):
Organizational members serve as the governing board for MPCA and represent a collection of Federally Qualified Health Centers, Indian health centers, and island-based community health centers that are controlled by their respective communities.
Affiliate members include FQHC Look-alikes, Rural Health Clinics, and other agencies that either help to form or are allied with the primary care safety net.
Associate members include entities and agencies not involved in the direct provision of health care services, but who are aligned with our mission.
Regardless of the level of membership, all members benefit from our ongoing efforts to support, develop, educate & communicate.
MPCA identifies the ongoing needs of member health centers and provides appropriate avenues to collectively address these needs.
MPCA also represents health centers on active boards, committees and workgroups at the local, state and national level.
MPCA delivers solutions and benefits to member health centers, including the development of programs, services, partnerships and training and technical assistance offerings.
MPCA applies relevant expertise - state, regional and national - to:
- Address operational and clinical quality improvement efforts and initiatives.
- Navigate the emerging healthcare landscape resulting from the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and our state health plan.
MPCA shares the latest news and developments regarding the efforts underway to reshape the access to and delivery of care and the evolving role of the primary care safety net, and its public and community partners.
