Collaboration is the key to success. The Primary Care Coalition works with a variety of partners and collaborators to improve access to high quality care for the most vulnerable residents of our community. From local governments, to hospitals and clinics, and community-based organizations, we work together to make health care happen.
The Primary Care Coalition applauds the Montgomery County Council for enacting Bill 60-14 to allow people who work in our community to earn paid sick and safe leave. Montgomery County now has a full complement of health care programs and a safety net system that offers primary and preventive care to every low-income resident who seeks care. But making health services available is only part of the puzzle. Until now, many of our low-income neighbors could not benefit from these health safety net programs because they could not take time away from work to seek health care for themselves or a loved one. Yesterday’s action was a momentous step toward improving health equity.
